NASB Note-Takers Bible - A Review

NASB Note-Takers Bible

A Review

This is the Bible each student of the Bible, lay, pastoral, student, or professional, should have at their side as they study.  Designed to hold a lifetime of study, each page has an abundance of open space to record open notes along the right, left, and bottom margins.  Space is not used for footnotes (except those included in the NASB translation), introductory notes, commentary, cross references, pictures, or maps - just blank space for notes.  The words of Jesus are in red.

The Bible does include a number of useful indexes:

  1. Concordance
  2. Promises from the Bible
  3. Perspectives from the Bible
  4. Ministry of Jesus
  5. Teachings of Jesus
  6. Miracles of Jesus
  7. Parables of Jesus

I would like to have even larger margins, but the margins included are indeed larger than those found in most Bibles.  Though I have most of the notes I have taken from my personal Bible study over the years, this edition would have been the perfect tool to record thoughts from a 45+ years of study.  It would, likely, not hold sermon notes designed for preaching - though it would serve well to record the notes taken by members of the audience as they heard the word of God on Sunday morning or during Bible Study.  

This, as the title suggests, is a “note-taking” Bible.  It is not a study Bible, it is not a devotional Bible.  But for taking notes, it is the tool that every Bible study student needs.

This review is based on a free copy provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review.  The opinions expressed are my own.
