Format: Bonded Leather Verified Purchase
I have just treated myself to this edition to mark my admission and licensing as a Reader in the Church of England. I have studied Theology for four years to reach this stage and the ESV is not actually the version recommended by the English universities. However (and that's a big HOWEVER) I wish I had chosen this version, and this particular edition, at the start of my studies. The notes are extremely helpful and develop a deeper understanding of the individual texts. Also each of the scriptural books has a concise but comprehensive introduction, complete with charts and diagrams to reinforce the learning. I personally also like the layout and the differentiation between text and notes; I like the quality of the paper and also the soft leather binding. I just know this Bible will be a comfortable and supporting friend over the years of ministry to come.

Over the years I have acquired a shelf-full of Bibles but none 'tick quite so many boxes'. The drawbacks are - the size and weight but then all the study Bibles are by necessity heavy and bulky - and to an Englishman the American spellings can irritate.

Format: Leather Bound
The print is clear and easily readable. The comment are useful and concise. Notes are well written. The only draback is American spellings in the text. An UK-English version wouldbe welcomed. It would be also useful to have details of print size and style in the description of Bibles and works of reference in the dscription of the product. If possible a full size example of type fece of the text would be useful.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By engländerinniedersachsen on 29 May 2011
Format: Hardcover
The ESV is a serious study Bible with new but conservative translation by the word-for-word principle (it still uses expressions like "sojourner" and a few other words which are no longer really familiar today). The translation is very accurate and, as far as possible, one word is used for the same Greek or Hebrew word all the time. That is, of course, not always possible, but footnotes help to understand the reasons. There are plenty of cross-references in a fairly easy-to-read margin (although the print is tiny, even in the Large Print Edition). The Study Notes are of varying value. I find it particularly good that there are full-colour maps, charts and diagrams in the text, at the very place where one needs them - studying the Tabernacle, for example, gets a good deal easier with these illustrations and explanations. On the other hand, some of the notes seem pretty superfluous - just summarizing what one can read for oneself in the text. In order to be "neutral", I suppose, the notes tend not to point to parallels between the Old and the New Testaments, and typological interpretations are pretty much excluded, at least as far as I have been able to discover so far. From this perspective, the "Study" section certainly does not preclude personal Bible study and the reading of good books of Bible interpretation (commentaries, sermons etc.). On balance, I think the ESV Study Bible is a valuable resource, but I would not want it to replace the NIV Study Bible, only complement it. The NIV translation is freer, but is better for public reading and seems to me to be often "inspired", whereas the ESV is for sober study at home and in the pastor's office, where it should certainly be used in sermon preparation.

Format: Imitation Leather
This is a beautifully bound and published Bible.
It's ideal for both public reading and for private study.
It's bulkier than some other study Bibles, but I wouldn't swap it for anything else, such is the quality of it's notes.
An outstanding Bible - for scholars and casual readers alike.

18 of 19 people found the following review helpful By Mr. J. L. Griffiths on 9 July 2009
Format: Hardcover
I have titled this review one of the best, and I mean it.
This study bible is is exquisite. The notes are helpfull in understanding and giving a basic start on many difficult passages. The detailed background information given behind each book of the bible help you give insite into views, situations and really puts alot of what is said in context. The maps enhance the reality of where biblical cities where incomparison with modern day cities. The articles are fantastic and really tackle difficult issues that orthodox bible believing christians want and must fight for so that the doctrine is not distorted (see 2Peter 3:15-16). As well as all this the cross-referencing and concordence that has been improved since the original ESV bibles is brilliant as ever making it even easier to find passages and look up others to back up points or give even more insite in to questions.
With all this plus access to an online version with even more bonus features, it makes me think about changing the title to 'the best'.
I really think that all other study bibles have a new goal to aim towards.

If we are honest in the sight of our God, we need to know our Old Testaments better. Some of us just simply need to know the whole Bible better. Well, here you have some great help - the ESV Study Bible is thoroughly dedicated to helping readers get to grips with the entire word of God. OT books come alive in all their relevance!

It contains extensive introductions, which set the scene for the reading of each particular biblical book. Everything you could imagine a biblical introduction should contain, it is found here: how this book of the Bible fits into the theme of Salvation; how the literary structure of this book works and why; who wrote it; when; where - almost everything! These are the best introductions to the books of the Bible I've ever found. Very accurate, very helpful indeed. Plus, at the end of each introduction there is always a full outline of the structure of the book. For me personally, I have found the introductions of this Study Bible to be the most helpful part of the entire book. I don't read from this study Bible daily; I use another Bible. But in going through the OT the last couple of times, I have read the introductions of each biblical book from this Bible. Do you know what this has done for me? It has clearly shown me why each book is in the Bible! For this alone, I would recommend this Study Bible. Reading these introductions is the quickest way to get a broad overview and proper picture of each of the OT books, and to see their relevance for us.

It puts the text, not in two columns on one page, but in one single column - as it should be!

It contains good cross-references (though some may find the letters within the text unhelpful).

The biblical text is a lovely and very comfortable size. Others seem to think so also.
