If one is using the Bible for serious studies?
NASB. The Key Word Study Bible in the NASB is a really good one.
After using the NASB for over a year now, I'd say it's the best 'study' Bible I've ever used, though there are no notes, which is my preference. I have looked at NIV, ESV, KJV, NKJV, HCSB and several other versions. I've enjoyed the NASB more than any other version and reading through it as well has been quite profitable.
To each their own. But if I were recommend between the two, NIV11.
Really? For serious study? How can you even do a decent word study using the NIV?
I have the Ryrie 1977 NASB study bible since college days, and is still going strong!
DO have the NIV, just prefer for serious studying NASB, as more "literal"
You can, just have to make sure one using the study tools based upon the new G-K numbering system if working directly from the NIV!
Amy, serious study of Scripture goes beyond mere words, for words have no meaning contexts.
The NIV11 is solid in this light.
NIV for me too. I guess I could ask the question "how could you do serious contextual study with the wooden feel of the NASB"
Just seems that the NASB 'fits' the Greek text underlining to closer extent....
NOT anti Niv, use it along with NASB, just sems easier to go to greek text easier to me with the NASB then the NIV, thats all!
The NASB no question. The NIV is fine if you if you have no other option...for reading only.
A few Questions:
If an individual runs his/her index finger under the words of the NASB while carefully reading them will he/she get a splinter? Does the NASB sitting on a shelf attract termites? If an individual has a NASB/NIV parallel Bible, will they notice a difference in the texture of the pages when comparing the NIV column to the NASB?
that MUST be why each copy of the NASB is sold with free Pledge, to keep cover clean!
Could the whole problem be solved by publishing the NASB on a composite page material or some other kind of synthetic material? Of course, a digital version of the NASB would solve the problem of woodenness altoghther!
have to let the lockman Foundation know, as sure they had several law suites of hands getting hurt openning up tht wooden print!
