This bible is a great size and colour.

Finally they have begun designing and selling these good looking Bibles. Thank you Amazon.co.uk for supplying these that are from the USA.

The ESV translation is fantastic, accurate clear and easy to read. The maps in this bible are very good and the concordance is brilliant. The print is good and clear - though the pages are quite thin and delicate. The Bible comes with a link for an online download of some software. The download went well and the free software is brilliant.

This is advertised as being leather, but I would confidently suggest that it is actually faux leather, and not a particularly luxuriant one at that. However, this is in no way a negative review, as this is the best release yet of the British version of the ESV text (admittedly there is not a lot of competition).

So, what we get here, at last, is a decent-sized font issue WITHOUT the distracting cross-references which appeared in Collins' first set of 'anglicized' ESVs, released several years ago.

The translation is good - basically it's the old RSV modernised from an evangelical perspective. It makes a good choice for close study, although, in truth, I still prefer the RSV, despite its age.

There is a release which is identical, save for having a slightly nicer (in my opinion) cover, described as 'Midnight Blue', but looking more like black: ISBN-10 0007360665. On both the inner-binding cracks rapidly.

It's a shame that Harper Collins do not do more to push the British text of the ESV. If you don't mind reading the US text then Crossway Books (and now others too) produce a plethora of better-bound releases.

To sum up. Good translation, passable binding, excellent value.

Review for chestnut Collins ESV bible. (just in case amazon throw it in the wrong esv section.)

My bible reviews get to the point I will always state the weird facts that I always wish were available when buying bibles online.

Type size is very good. About the size of a paperback novel (not the newest ones which seem to have huge fonts.) About the size of the second smallest font size on the kindle. Completely readable. Compared to crossway's compact size (tiny) is much better and suited for longer periods of reading.
There is very little bleed through and the pages are not scarily white (for those of us with irlens the contrast is still a bit in your face but not as bad as som intense black on white)

Two colum format (which I've returned to. It's a bible thing-lets me know I'm reading something special)Also a plus if your a reader who can take in a line at a time.

Cover is more brown than red it's a warm brown very elegant but not as bright burgundy as my screen shows (yours may differ.)

Book is about the size of two dvd cases. Not compact but thinner than the compact ones and still a very transportabl and comfy size.

Cover smells like a carpet shop (that's a bonus lol)

Cover feels wonderful and looks really good quality (I'm actually surprised at how nice it is.)
Cover is stiff and not floppy so when flicking through pages you wouldn't hold the back cover but it still flicks through really well.
Gilt edges were not stuck together and they are subtle not super glowing.
As with every bible I ever buy, the first page was slightly creased.
No award or name page (not a problem for me but some may need to know.

I would advise would-be purchasers to look at the American deluxe compact editions from Crossway rather than this Collins edition: it's only real advantage is that it is anglicised.
However, in comparison to the Crossway editions, it lacks gilt to the page edges and is far less flexible. The Collins cover, an attractive charcoal grey with light grey decorative stitching around the edges, is not as good as the Crossway tru-tone covers. There is no way the Collins can be described as imitation leather: it is plastic, nice plastic, but plastic nonetheless.
I suspect the binding is glued, not sewn: the American editions are apparently sown and, therefore, can open and lie flat. The Collins edition simplies closes: force would break the cover or spine.
On the plus side, this compact ESV is much more readable than previous editions: the type is clearer and a little larger. But this is also the case with the newer US editions.

Holy Bible: English Standard Version (ESV)

No translation of the Bible can be perfect but, in my view, the ESV at present leads the field for accuracy and readability. The Crossway editions have clear print and are beautifully produced. This will be a constant companion until something better comes along!

Having seen a friend using an ESV Bible from Amazon, I purchased 4 copies through you. They came in a couple of days and I am delighted with them. The Bibles are elegant, thin, soft faux-leather covered, gilt-edged, and the print is extremely readable. All this for just a fraction of their true value. Well done, Amazon!
