Product Description

Review

“Retaining the majesty of language with the clarity of thought, the English Standard Version is a grand accomplishment.”
Dr. Ravi Zacharias,
Author and Speaker

“The ESV is the text I have been waiting for my entire life. I appreciate greatly both its fluency of language and its lucidity of expression, thanks to the brilliant work of the translation team. We owe them a very great debt.”
Rev. Ranald Macaulay,
Christian Heritage, The Round Church, Cambridge

“After preaching out of the same version for over 10 years, I switched to the ESV Bible. I find it both accurate and easily readable, which is a rare combination.”
Francis Chan,
Author of Crazy Love

“I thank God for the ESV. It combines up-to-date accuracy in the text and absolute faithfulness to the words of Scripture with a literary skill and beauty in the translation which, in my judgment, is unsurpassed.”
Eric J. Alexander,
Retired Pastor, St. George’s-Tron Parish Church, Scotland

“At last a translation that majors on accuracy, combined with a modern, fluent style. I am confident that in time the ESV will become the standard translation for the English-speaking world.”
The Rt. Rev. Wallace Benn,
Bishop of Lewes, England

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.

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.

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.

The ESV is an excellent translation. I have never been fond of the NIV as it appears to deliberately turn sentences around to get away from previous translations that follow the order of the Greek text. The NIV is also a phrase for phrase translation and, as a result removes ambiguities or alternative renderings of many verses. These alterantives often have value. The ESV is a word for word translation and is thus more transparent, letting me see the original more clearly. I have been a user of the RSV for forty years and thought I would be continuing to use it. I have easily switched to the ESV. Authorised/KJ and NKJ users could easily do the same.
Those that have been brought up on the NIV will find it more difficult and may even think that the ESV doesn't read right.
The study notes are brilliant but make the book bulky and heavy. A small truck should easily cope with the weight. Going back to the study notes, I will give you an example. I have long since thought that the passage in Isaiah six, often headed 'the commissioning of Isaiah' is actually Isaiah's eaves dropping on a conversation within the Trinity and should be headed, "The comissioning of Jesus." I have never heard anybody preach this and am often looked on askance when I susggest it. It's there in the ESV study notes. These notes also have the advantage of being a relief from boredom during many sermons. They are thorough and have many maps and diagrams. Especially in the New Testament they occupy more space that the text itself. Many advantages if you can carry it around.

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.

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.
