‘This is a fine, fresh and faithful translation, combining both elegance and accuracy to bring us a version of the bible that is anything but standard. The ESV brings us a text that is both readable yet scholarly. It is quite simply the best version we have today – clear, simple and illuminating‘
MARTYN PERCY, Principal of Ripon College Cuddesdon
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
THE RT. REV. WALLACE BENN, Bishop of Lewes, England

A superior design to the large print esv thin line bible I bought from Crossway, type size is far smaller but somehow more legible.
Cover material and design is beautiful, it's harder than the Crossway version and looks more durable.
It arrived quickly.
Paper is that rubbish thin indian paper but somehow there's less ghosting (more than likely because the type is smaller and thinner).
I know it's a neat and handy size for carrying around but I think you could have sacrificed a little tiny ergonomic comfort for a slightly wider and longer Bible, maybe by just an inch and a half each way, to allow for a larger gutter and larger borders. White space is not wasted space, it really helps with reading, especially for those of us who are dyslexic and find it easy to blur the lines when reading long passages of text.
Some of the pages stuck together, possibly due to the gilt edges.
Overall I am happy enough to give a four star rating, had some aspects better than my Crossway version and some aspects worse or on par. It's a good translation, only bettered by the MEV. The MEV large print is my favourite thus far, though, again, that indian paper...urrgh!
Anyway, peace, grace and mercy, don't let my review shroud the more important value of the Word of God, and how the life breathing words and their necessity in our lives as believers, far outweighs the frivolous design preferences we may have. I thank God He has faithfully preserved His Word in order for us, who are vessels of His divine, foreordained will, to receive our daily bread from the living, enduring Word who became flesh and is one day returning for us!
If you are serious about reading, and more importantly, interpreting the Bible though, I would definitely recommend that you pick up a second Bible of a different version (such as the KJV) to compare prominent verses, as there can be quite notable differences in the translation.
The word of God is for everyone. Never did understand nor ever will why some bibles are so expensive. This is the one if you feel the same way. Hard wearing as well. Travels with me and will do, God willing a long time.
Thank you to the seller for not going daft with prices on something that should not be sold at a high price.
I love the flexible cover, with its embossed detailing and gilt edged paper. This makes for a lovely gift for someone who would appreciate a bible.
Very happy with the quality, price and speed of delivery of this lovely item.
Acts 9:10 Now there was a disciple at Damascus named Ananias. The Lord said to him in a vision, “Ananias.” And he said, “Here I am, Lord.”
What Ananias did that day was: Act on the Word God commanded,heal a blind person, preach the Gospel, Baptize someone in water, Baptize someone with The Holy Spirit.
This was just one day in Ananias life, I don't think God told him to go and sit down and wait for The Lord's return the rest of his life. I think this was one day of many like that.
I pray that The Lord will wake up a Heavenly Hunger in all who reads this book. amen.
God bless you.
