Understand the Bible in a deeper way.

The ESV Study Bible was created to help people understand the Bible in a deeper way. To accomplish this, it combines the best and most recent evangelical Christian scholarship with the highly regarded ESV Bible text.

The result is the most comprehensive study Bible ever created, which raises the bar in terms of quality and quantity to a level that will not be matched for decades.

Product Description


“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

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstandingly Good 27 Mar 2010
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Insightful 9 Nov 2010
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent help to study 8 Jun 2009
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars masterpiece 24 Nov 2008
The best study bible I have ever owned - the ESV text being essentially literal is accurate not simplistic yet accessible for the average reader. The notes, maps and articles far surpass those I have read in any other study Bible for their depth and quality. If you want a bible that draws you in to further deeper study this is the one.

5.0 out of 5 stars ESV Study Bible 17 Oct 2009
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars ESV Study Bible Review 10 Nov 2009
By S. Gunn
Format:Bonded Leather
Excellent study bible. First impressions are that it is very detailed in its commentary. The inclusion of maps and other supporting historical information help set the Biblical scene and give the reader an understanding of the context in which the Biblical story has been played out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks set to be THE study bible to have 28 Nov 2008
I already have a couple of ESV Study Bibles (Scofield and Reformation) as I really like the translation of the ESV, but this is better.

Unusually, it prints the text (in 9pt type) in a single column (like ordinary books) with the cross references in the left margin, and study notes below in two columns in smaller type.

Also unusual (and very welcome) is that it has colour maps (where relevant) on the same page as the text, as well as a map section on thicker paper at the back.

The other bonus is that you get a code number that gives you access to the online text, notes, maps and diagrams; plus you can personalise your notes online (though I haven't tried that yet).

People say it's too big at 2750 pages; but it is more manageable than (for example) the New Interpreters Study Bible (NRSV) which has fewer pages, but in a wider format.

I can see this being THE study bible that others will have to try to emulate.

5.0 out of 5 stars ESV study bible via Kindle 4 Jan 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I hope that the following review will help prospective purchasers. I give the Kindle to PC five stars as it provides a clear format on screen, with choice of page colour (black, white, tinted)and also a great flexibility of viewing options. The Kindle only version is more restricted and although good is only four stars by comparison. It may be just usage but I find that with the Kindle version I only read as though it were a book without notes, while with the Kindle to PC version I refer to the notes with much greater ease, not just the cross references but also the study notes. Having previously purchased a hard copy ESV bible eligible for the free ESV study download I would strongly recommend this above both the above Kindle versions. That download is available outside the USA and, although it is a very large download to PC, it is a wonderful tool. (One needs to consult the ESV website to find which books contain this offer)
