    I cannot speak to its durability since I just received it but I believe this is a wonderful Bible. The format is terrific being VBV and black letter throughout. In my humble opinion the comments about horrendous ghosting are not warranted and are subjective. If you went from a $200 Bible to this, you would likely find inferior quality, as would be expected; but this is a terrific Bible and the Lockman Foundation is a great organization to support.

    I received my Set of Scriptures ( Lockman NASB Side-Column Wide Margin Reference Black Gen. Leather, today 2 August 2018. I ordered it on 30 July 2018.

    I would like to say I have a few NASB’s , I mainly use King James Versions, mainly I was reared on them from a Lad. But the Folks had said their were other versions. They were Church of Brethren.

    I find that this copy of Scripture is constructed very well and the cream color page sets off the dark black print of the Text.

    The Font Size is just fine as I have eye problems and the side margin references are not that bad, I have seen worse. My wife and I have a nice library of Bibles , all different versions and translantions. This NASB will be a welcome addition to our collection of our Word Of God.

    I know after my cateracts (sp) will be removed I will not have to use my glasses to read.

    The leather binding is extremely smooth and was easy to break in.

    My mother being a Librarian showed us kids always to break in a bible ( you can find it on you tube) they will last longer.

    The Ghosting is not bad and bleed through is minimal. I think all Bibles and Books have that problem.

    I use Crayola Pencils I get from the grocery store so that solves the bleeding through.

    All In All I think this Bible is a terrific addition to the Word of God , and I am expecting to spend many happy hours studying and learing from it.

    I’m a missionary abroad and was looking for a Bible that was durable and could handle a lot of study without breaking down and losing pages and I’m very pleased.

    I’ve had this Bible for a year and use it for all my expositional Bible studies.

    DURABILITY:

    The cover is good and has held up to quite a lot of use. I converted its box into a carrying case to add extra protection while its in my backpack, but the cover has still taken quite a bit of wear and held up very well.

    The binding is holding up better than I expected. I don’t see any tearing or loose pages yet.

    The pages are slightly thin, which makes them susceptible to crinkling and ghosting, but they aren’t ripping yet. The pages have been able to handle writing and highlighting without tearing. I’m seeing no discoloring yet and the pages do not curl.

    THE FORMAT:

    I love the wide-margins with verse-by-verse format; perfect for expository style preaching.

    New paragraphs are indicated by bold-font verse numbers, which help you not to lose track of macro-patterns.

    The references are next to the margin instead of in the gutter, which I would have preferred, but I have adjusted and don’t even notice it anymore.

    OVERALL:

    This Bible is something that you can count on lasting through quite a lot of study. It is well-formatted, a great version, and has little to be improved on.

    I’m very pleased with my Lockman NASB Side-Column Wide Margin Reference Bible in Black Genuine Leather. This is excellent value for money.
    I have a 2017 printing, the paper is crisp and very ligible. The generous 11pt font is easy on my eyes, and the verse by verse single column format reads very smoothly and for me reduces eye strain considerably, reading 3+ hours per day. There’s as much ‘ghosting’ as I’d expect in a cheaper bible without line matching.
    The robust side margin references, combined with the concordance leave me little reason to consult my strongs concordance in most studies. If I decide to use the outer margin, there’s plenty of room to write additional cross references, not really enough to say I could make notes.
    The genuine leather is pleasant and flexible to hold, being MUCH softer and far more flexible than the Lockman thinline refererence bible in black leather, which is like holding sandpaper and stiff as a board… not the case with this bible. The lining is strong but fairly flexible, some type of synthetic, not paper.
    The bible lays extremely flat right out of the box, even when reading in Genesis and Revelation! For $35.00 I was pleasantly surprised by this.
    The only feature I have a complaint about is the cheap, poor quality ribbon marker, this would be substandard in a $10.00 bible, however, I use homemade bookmarks and have little use for ribbons, and overall this bible is such good value I’m still giving it 5 stars despite the ribbon.
    Make no mistake this is not a small bible, nor is it a $200 bible… as advertised. Using the outside cover for measurements, mine is 7″ x 9-5/8″ x 1-3/8″. If you’re looking for a small bible, buy a small bible, not this one.
    If you’re looking for a well bound, comfortable to the touch, easy to read, robust reference bible for inductive study; this is it, and at a great price!

    I bought this and the LPUT both in Genuine Leather, though not from this store for shipping cost reasons (Canada).
    The leather is different from the LPUT and SCR, the SCR is a little more flexible and smoother and the LPUT is rougher and slightly stiffer, I like both, they’re both durable leathers.

    The 2017 prints were anticipated by NASB fans because they thought Lockman was going to improve the paper quality and binding. I’m not sure if the binding was improved, mine haven’t had any issues though I’m donating the SCR.

    The ghosting is still terrible, even after the new paper and new printing. I said the ghosting is terrible though, not the paper. Believe it or not, the paper with this terrible ghosting is actually a nice paper, smooth, no glare, takes ink well (no bleed through) opaque. The thing is that doesn’t matter if the ghosting is almost unbearable, this is why people dislike these Bibles by Lockman, they went from using the best paper I’ve ever seen (early 2000’s and 2007) to the worst.
    I’m sure the issue isn’t as easy as this to fix, but the solution appears very simple. Line match. They need to get with the program, everyone is line matching these days which improves the reading experience exponentially when you’re dealing with paper that ghosts, which most Bible paper does now due to production cost. Honestly, if Lockman would line match these Bibles, especially the SCR, it would make a WORLD of a difference and I myself would use the Genuine Leather SCR as my main Bible hands down. It has everything I like besides red print, but due to the ghosting which is extremely distracting to me I don’t use this.

    Overall, very disappointing in this way. Now we have to wait several more years to see if Lockman will clue in when they’re ready for another printing, maybe they’ll do a better job with the 2019 revision production.

    My first point on review is that customer service blew my expectations out of the water in both friendliness and honesty! I’m currently serving abroad and needed a reliable and durable wide-margin NASB with large font. So I contacted customer service for their recommendation. I had two other options in mind, but customer service informed me that this format – which was cheaper – had been singled out by other reviewers as being very durable. I was so impressed they met my needs instead of trying to sell me something that wouldn’t last as long.

    The cover is nice. I can tell that it will wear quickly on the outside and begin to crack around the edges, but the construction is very solid and I think it will last a long time even if it does show some wear. The words “Genuine Leather” and the ISBN are printed in gold lettering on the back, which is my only strike against the format, but this is negligible in my opinion.

    The binding looks well done and when it opens there no crackling sound from the binding, which I’m told is a sign the binding was poorly done. Though there is space between the cover and spine when it is open, that doesn’t bother me at all. What is most important is that the binding feels very durable and still feels quite tight after coming with me through lots of travel and enduring a lot of study time already.

    The paper is thin but appears durable; I do not expect the edges to wear out as quickly as my last Bible did. I use a light blue pen and special plastic crayons to mark in my Bible, and there is no bleed through from my notes. But without “line matching”, you can notice some bleed through from the font on the next page, though it hasn’t been enough to interfere with readability.

    This is my first single-column Bible and I am extremely pleased! The single column makes note taking much, much more efficient. It may actually be hard for me to go back to double column!

    The font is very clear and sufficiently large that I can read for hours without straining my eyes. Next to durability, this is the most important feature to me. I am very thankful not to be distracted by headaches anymore, which frees me up to concentrate for longer periods at a time.

    I love the verse-by-verse format; it makes finding references so much faster. But what I absolutely love about this Bible is that they “bold-text” the verse numbers that mark the beginning of new paragraphs! This means you don’t lose access to the valuable exegetical insight of where each verse fits in the contextual flow of the book. In fact, I recommend reading the “forward” and the “Explanation of General Format” in the beginning to get the full features of this NASB’s format.

    Because I travel, finding a case to carry my Bible in that will keep it safe is very important. The box that this Bible comes in is made of sturdy material and with some scissors, gorilla tape, and ingenuity, you can turn the box into its own carrying case. This is how I keep the Bible from getting crushed in my backpack or suitcase when I’m traveling.

    Overall, having traveled across the pacific ocean, and spent quite a lot of time studying this Bible, I could not be more pleased with the durability and features of this Bible.

    In my view, there’s very little room for improvement!

    I love the format of this Bible. Within three days of buying I already had written a decent amount of notes. The Bible also started falling apart during this time. The text block was separating from the cover & some of the signatures were starting to protrude. I was surprised & disappointed. I will not attempt to buy this Bible again. I also had trouble with the lput that had loose binding to the text & had a bluish tint to the paper.
    I will say this, the customer service here at EB is excellent. I received a refund for both Bibles. The problem was addressed quickly. So, I am thankful for that. You’re better off trying to find an older print with this format printed in the US not China.
