If you were going to get a NAS Version what Study Bible would you get and why ? Thanks !
I just got the new MacArthur NASB Study Bible. It is very impressive, all the features of the NKJV MacArthur, but with a true concordance.
You might find it a helpful tool.
I have MacArthurs in the NKJ .They only have it in hardback the Leathers not coming out till late May .I do like his Study Bible alot .I was thinking of a Life Application .I have one in the NLT like that one also .Thanks !
I would reccomend the MacArthur as well. I have two- one in the NKJV and a Spanish edition (RV 1960).
I recommend it as well. I have the one in the NKJV and will be getting the one in NASB soon. Good notes and commentary.
I may wait till the end of May and get the Leather one from MacArthur's site .
I'm partial to the Ryrie Study Bible. It is now available in the NAS95. My favorite Ryrie was the NKJV available years ago, but I haven't seen it in print for several years.
I have used Ryrie's study Bible's for years .I have one in the NIV ,KJ and the older NAS .
What features make a good study Bible?
In the past, I've used a standard Bible and a supplement from another source.
Opppps! I was told to stay out of the Baptist only areas.
I would pass on the NASB and go with the Reformers Study Bible in the ESV translation - it is recognized by scholars as a better translation than the NASB.
Before making the final choice - check out the ESV it is in the best family of English translations INCLUDING the NASB - those would be the KJV, NKJV, ESV, NASB, HCSB and the LITV. These all use the best underlying texts and hold to a more literal word-for-word translation philosophy.
1) Which scholars?
2) That seems like a big generalization.
I have just finished the ESV and honest in the Reformation Study Bible .I really like it but want the updated NAS to read through next .I don;t know if its better but from what I read on it and about it its very good !
I have heard both ways, the ESV and NASB.
So far, as I compare them, I am still leaning towards the NASB, but ESV is definately 2nd.
Neither has very many study bibles, which is why I am excited about the MacArthur Study bible in NASB. As soon as I'm not poor...........
I guess I am a bit biased towards the ESV, the NASB is a very good translation and am NOT knocking it.
Though I haven't looked through it I would say the NASB MacArthur Study Bible would be one to seriously consider for sure, since his NKJV is recognized as the leading study Bible in the NKJV translation.
