Here are four more short reviews of some New American Standard Bibles. Three are out of print but sometimes available in the used book markets. The fourth is a currently available production.
Crown Reference Edition NASB (1977). This Bible can be found fairly cheap used though it is out of print. The copy I found is a rather flexible premium bonded leather with paste-down liners. It measures 5.75 by 8.375 inches by 1 inch thick. 1 ribbon. The paper is good with some ghosting. It is a two column, verse by verse, cross referenced layout. The 7 point font print is bold enough to help overcome ghosting. It is a slightly brownish red letter that is very easy to read. This has book introductions, a guide to pronouncing Bible names, significant Bible dates, a harmony of the Gospels, a concordance and maps. This is an excellent portable reference Bible.
Cambridge Cameo Bible NASB (1977). This Bible is hard to find. The copy I have is stiff bonded leather with paste-down liners. It measures 5.125 by 7.25 inches by 1.5 inch thick. 1 ribbon. The paper is "ultra thin Bible paper" with limited ghosting. It is a two column, verse by verse, cross referenced layout. The font size is 7.25 to 7.5. The red lettering is an unfortunate red (almost pink) color. A concordance and maps are in the back. It was typeset by Lehigh/Rocappi. It was printed by Kingsport Press in 1979. This is a sought-after edition due to its readability. My copy has some variation in print darkness between pages. The print is larger than Cambridge's Pitt Minion. This is a wonderful Bible - another portable edition. This may become my reference Bible that I keep by the computer.
The Outdoor Bible: Sportsman's Edition NASB (1995). ISBN 978-0-9792384-4-1. While some sellers have horribly high prices on this little out-of-print gem, one can still find some reasonably priced copies. This is one of Bardin & Marsee's waterproof Bibles - what they call the "DuraBook format." This contains just the New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs. It measures 4.5 by 7 inches by 0.75 inches thick. The paper is a 100% plastic with almost perfectly opaque paper. Ghosting is so minimal that it can just barely be seen in blank spaces. Print is bold but very small - 6 points. This is a two column, verse by verse format with no cross references. For outdoor use or reading in the rain this can't be beat!
Zondervan Giant Print Reference Bible, Personal Size NASB (1995). ISBN 978-310-91913-1. This is available on most book sellers for around $40 (USD). The bonded leather on this copy is flexible. It measures 5.625 by 8.875 inches by 1.5 inch thick. 1 ribbon. The paper feels good but does have some noticeable ghosting. The 9.5 pt, bold font helps overcome this fairly well. It almost appears to have line matching, at least on some pages. It is a two column, verse by verse, cross referenced Bible. The red lettering is dark & bold - making it good for reading. A concordance and Bible maps are included. While the print is excellent in this Bible the ghosting may be a problem for some.
