This Bible is a must have for all those who are in pursuit of the fullness of the Holy Spirit in their life. The notes are very well written and helpful to those of us who come from a Pentecostal heritage. The Book introductions and articles are also a wealth of solid Biblical scholarship. The quality of the Bible itself is good, the binding seems sturdy and the leather-like cover appears to be very durable. You will not be disappointed with this Bible!
I've had the Full Life Study Bible before and love it. I deeply appreciate the notes, explanations and articles which are incredibly balanced. I also live the ESV Bible. this is a great tool fir a beginner, a student or a preacher.
I have a small version of the ESV translation of the Bible to carry with me and this larger version is what I use at home when I am studying and comparing different translations. The maps and other study helps are excellent.
This is a review for the ESV Fire Bible Charcoal Leather-look Edition.
Like previous editions the ESV Fire Bible contains excellent Book Intros; Annotations from and Arminian/Pentecostal perspective; Study Articles; Annotation Index; Concordance and Maps.
You do not have to be Pentecostal to enjoy the Arminian perspective in this Bible which places no limits on Christ's Atonement for unbelievers and genuinely calls on all people to repent (1 Tim 2:4; 2 Peter 3:9; John 3:16 etc.).
The ESV edition of the Fire Bible is superior to all other editions in that: 1. it has a large, readable typeface; 2. cross references are located on inner margins of pages allowing Biblical text to be centered on the page;
3. binding is Smyth Sewn for durability; 4. ESV Translation is accurate and literary; 5. Imitation leather is flexible and durable.
Bottom line: Hendrickson knows how to make quality, durable Bibles. You won't regret purchasing this excellent Bible with its clear print and great study helps in the ESV Translation!
