4.0 out of 5 stars cheap and cheerful 14 July 2010
Format:Imitation Leather
Ordinarily I use the New International Version (NIV), but I got this Bible to see what the new English Standard Version (ESV) had to offer. I don't claim to be qualified to compare the versions at any deep level - I'm sure there is plenty of material available on the internet arguing the pros and cons of different textual sources, the finer points of Greek and Hebrew grammar etc.

However, as an informed reader my first impression is that it is actually very similar in style and 'feel' to the NIV. The only real difference I noticed was that occasionally this version used slightly less elegant English, saying things in a more round-about way which I presume reflected a wish to stay true to the original text. On the plus side, there seemed to be a few more useful footnotes than in a standard NIV. These helped to clarify Greek/Hebrew meanings, explained terms of weight and measurement etc, or gave alternate readings where the translation was ambiguous. Overall, though, it didn't seem better or worse than the NIV, just slightly different. Given the current popularity of the NIV, I would imagine this new version will find it hard to make its mark.

This edition does have a few nice added features; there is a friendly "What the Bible is all about" page at the beginning, a paragraph of introduction at the start of each of the books and a couple of maps at the end. There is a short article outlining the background to the ESV translation, and some Bible reading notes, which you may or may not appreciate.

As regards quality, you know you're not getting the top-of-the-range product if you choose an 'imitation leather' cover. Indeed the text is a bit cramped, and there is a slightly 'cheap' look to the paper but it seems sturdy enough - I've had this one a few weeks now, and it's showing no signs of falling apart. Not a bad buy if you want to check out the ESV version.

5.0 out of 5 stars English Standard Version: Gift and Award. 2 Sep 2011
Format:Imitation Leather|Verified Purchase
To pay less than 5 for a bible is amazing, at this sort of price literally everyone should own a bible. Its a standard bible, imitation leather, small font (but not too small) paragraphed with a title for each individual paragraph. The translation is very easy to understand, apparently there is some archaic language, but I would say its few and far between. If you were to choose a translation this would be it. It uses the most up to date manuscripts (Nestle and United), was very scholarly worked by Evangelicals and is conservatively approached. Its only competitor in the Critical Text area would be the NASB.

If you are going to purchase this, I would suggest having a read, seeing what you think of the translation (for less than the price of a packet of 20 cigarettes), then look at purchasing the ESV study bible.

You should get alot of translations, work for whats best for you. These new translations are there to make the Bible understandable for our generation. Always cross reference between various versions, We are in fantastic times where all can be true scholars of the bible, understand it and learn from it like never before!
