Holy Bible - New American Standard Version (NASB)
FORMAT: (1) MP3 DVD / (2) MP3 CDS
The New American Standard Bible is widely regarded as the most literally translated of 20th-century English Bible translations. According to the NASB's preface, the translators had a "Fourfold Aim" in this work:
- These publications shall be true to the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek.
- They shall be grammatically correct.
- They shall be understandable.
- They shall give the Lord Jesus Christ His proper place, the place which the Word gives Him; therefore, no work will ever be personalized.
The NASB is a revision of the American Standard Version of 1901. This translation was an alternative to the (1946?1952/1971), itself a revision of the ASV, but considered by many to be theologically liberal.
