    The ASV of 1901 is still an excellent Bible for study. Star Bible Publishers in Texas publishes it, and you can also get it online from youversion.com.

    I like the ASV 1901. I have one that was printed in 1921. The cover was falling off, but because the pages are not in that good of shape, I decided not to have it recovered. I fixed it with some black duct tape instead. :)

    Star Publishers is currently out of complete ASV Bibles. They have some NT's, but I want the complete Bible. I thought they were going to print more this spring, but they have not done so. Bummer.

    I made a mistake. My ASV was printed in 1929 and not 1921. I did download the version for e-sword.

    While the large church of my teen years used the Scofield KJV1769 revision, it housed the larget ifb seminary. There, many used the ASV1901 since it was a far more accurate translation from the Greek. It had some glaringly poor translations/choices (all man-made attempts fail at some point or other) II Tim 3:16 was really bad.

    Still have mine from college and seminary . . along with notes I wrote in the margin. I MUCH prefer it to the NASB (the 1901 revised for the worse) and have it for easy reference.
