The LSB advances the aim of the NASB. It brings out textual connections through consistent translation of words, highlights literary artistry like alliteration, and tightens grammatical structure. This new level of precision the Bible reader is able to see more of what is happening in the original text than ever before. Learn more
English is a global language. We knew we needed a global team to test the readability of the text. The LSB was reviewed by a team of 70+ scholars, pastors, and every-day NASB readers from around the world. This ensures readers from all walks of life can easily engage and interact with the text.
Expository preachers and Bible teachers including John MacArthur, Al Mohler, Charles Stanley, Kay Arthur, and thousands of others have used the NASB because of its faithfulness to what the Author originally intended. Their influence has led millions of Christian men and women to use the NASB in their personal, daily reading. The LSB carries on that tradition by seeking to apply even more precision to its literal qualities.
