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

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.

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.

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.

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.
