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.

Features include:

  • Bible paper
  • Cross-references
  • Concordance
  • 15 color maps
  • Presentation page
  • Ribbon marker
  • Red-letter text for the words of Christ
  • Head and tail bands
  • Sewn binding
  • Page dimensions: 7 1/4 x 9 x 1 3/8 inches (184 mm x 231 mm x 35 mm) 
  • Number of pages: 1,188 
  • Typography: 8 pt Lexicon

    The Cambridge NASB Wide Margin Reference Edition NS741:XRM, is the Quintessential Wide Margin Bible for Writing in.
    I know this might sound like heresy on the level of Arius but, I like this Bible more than its goat skin, edge lined, art gilt, counterpart. This has got to be about as close to perfect for note taking as one can get. I reviewed the goat skin leather one a while back. You can read about that edition here. Don’t get me wrong. I am not saying it is better quality or better in features. What I am saying is that the goat skin leather edition was so nice that it was difficult for me to write in. That might sound strange to you, but it wouldn’t if you held it and realized how much it cost. It is probably the first or second best Bible I’ve ever owned.

    The hard back edition has the same lovely, enlarged, Pitt Minion typeset. It has the same generously wide margins. It has the same flexible smyth-sewn binding. It was printed and bound by Jongbloed in the Netherlands just like the goat skin leather edition. It is exactly the same except it has a hard back cover. It is case bound. The page edges are not gilt. There is one lovely, red ribbon marker, contrasting beautifully against the thick, white, paper.

    The hard back is much less expensive. You can buy it online for approximately $50 to $70. The cover is a built in desk, for when you are in Church, or at Bible study. With the goat skin covered edition you really can’t write in it unless it is on a desk or table. The cover is just so flexible. The hard back of course doesn’t have that issue.

    The biggest ooh and ahh feature to me is the gorgeous paper. I just love the paper in this Bible.

    The paper is of outstanding quality. It is smooth, opaque, uniform in color and texture, as well as being thick.

    The print is 8 point in size. It is a larger version of the Pitt Minion. I know some of you might expect larger text in a Bible this size, but don’t forget, this is a wide margin. If you want room for notes and you don’t want a two inch thick Bible you have to compromise someplace. I think the text is just the right size. It is so wonderfully done that it is easy to read, very legible. The printing is uniformly done and consistent throughout. Even the red text is printed with the same quality. The text is arranged in a double column paragraph format, with references in the center. The margins are nice and wide.

    I wanted to show how well the paper took ink, pencil, and highlighter. I used a Lammy fountain pen, with and extra fine nib, and Waterman’s black ink. I also used a medium point ball point pen, with black ink, and a #2 graphite pencil. You can see that neither the fountain pen or ball point ink pen showed through the page significantly. The wet highlighter did much better than I expected. I thought it would bleed through more than it did. On most other Bibles it is like highlighting the verses on the other side of the page as well. I would highly recommend this Bible for anyone looking for a wide margin.

    I was reluctant about purchasing the hardcover fearing that the paper wouldn’t be as good as the leather bound siblings. Boy, was I wrong! The paper is incredible, the ghosting is very minimal and the margins are very generous. The only small gripe is the writing paper in the back, I wish that they were lined, but it’s not that big of a deal. If all goes well with my first note-taking bible, then it will be a no brainer to purchase a goatskin ESV wide margin.

    I have had this Bible for over a month, my daughter heard me say “How I would like this set of Scriptures.” So on this past Fathers Day she gave it to me, and I was sure suprised.
    It feels good in the hand and the leather is sure nice. Also the binding is great. The Font is a little bit small , I have never seen Lexicon Font before, so when I use it , it does take some getting use to.
    My daughter said that Cambridge/Evangelical were right on the ball in getting the Product out to her, she wished more online company’s were like they were.

    I would like to say that I am a king James Version reader, but not an onlyist so I do welcome this edition of the Holy Word Of God to my library and will consult it and refer to it as I have been

    Overall I like this Bible Alot
    In His Matchless Grace
