The NASB Wide-Margin Reference Edition is based upon Cambridge’s new NASB Pitt Minion Reference Edition. The layout and pagination of the Old and New Testaments are identical, but here the Bible text is enlarged and offers the additional benefit of wide margins for note-making. The Bible is printed on slightly thicker paper for enhanced durability, and (like all Cambridge Bibles) is sewn for increased longevity and also to enable the Bible to open and stay flat.
This edition features red-letter text for the words of Christ, full cross-references, an extensive concordance, extra ruled pages for notes, and fifteen maps.

“Like trying to hold water in my hands … that’s what my first experience with the Cambridge Wide Margin Reference Bible was like. I expected the goatskin cover to be flexible, but this was ridiculous. Ridiculously good, that is. Wherever it wasn’t supported by my hand, this Bible gracefully plunged toward the floor, almost like it was wet. I half expected it to be dripping, but of course it wasn’t. That’s the illusion a fine, flexible binding can give….It was the best Cambridge binding I’ve ever witnessed, and one of the best Bibles I’ve ever handled, period.” ~ J. Mark Bertrand
