NASB Note-Takers Bible Zondervan Bibles

NASB Note-Takers Bible  
Zondervan Bibles

Ahh... so you like to take notes in your Bible, but the margins just aren't enough?  Take a look at this new version of the NASB.  It is geared towards note-takers.  It has wide margins on the outer edges and bottom of the page.  The space provided provides adequate space for note-taking.   I had expected space surrounding the print on each page, so that a person could take notes next to the scripture that you are referring to, but their design makes sense for the flow of reading.  The paper of this Bible would be hold up better with a pencil for notes or a pen that doesn't bleed.  I would avoid a ball point pen with it.

This Bible has the basic information that accompanies all Bibles such as principles of translation, a basic concordance, a page listing promises from the Bible, and more.  There is no cross reference, nor any commentary, just the basics.  This is a red-letter Bible for those who like to read the spoken words of Christ in red, although we should note that since God inspired the whole of the Word, that all words hold equal importance and purpose.
Overall, I think this is a great basic Bible for note-takers.  The NASB is a great word-for-word translation as well.

|I received this Bible from the publisher.  I was not required to write a positive review.  All opinions are mine.
