    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 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'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.

    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 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.
