The construction and quality in this bible is second to none I have seen. I was looking for a nasb in calfskin but couldn't find one. The ESV translation is very sound and reads well. I would recommend this edition to anyone looking for high quality bible that will last for years.
It's increasingly difficult to find good quality Bibles. Especially if you desire genuine leather and red letter Bibles with durable binding. If you're looking for the best, this Bible is it! I read and study from it more than any other Bible translation in my collection. The ESV is very accurate and easy to understand, and I like the fact that it's a formal equivalence. It's loaded with helpful notes, diagrams, and maps that make it very informative. It's a durable Bible that I'm sure will last a lifetime, with proper care. Good quality paper, and it's very soft and lays flat. The only thing I've noticed is that the notes are slanted towards the idea of dispensationalism. I'm okay with that, but I'd prefer a little more neutrality. I think you will LOVE this Bible! God Bless!
I love the ryrie study bible,with all it's notes and helps and wonderful maps. I began my walk with Christ with the NASB but once I read the ESV I loved it's clearity and ease of reading. This bible with the calfskin leather is a blessing that I will treasure!
I have always loved the Ryrie Bible, I find Dr. Ryrie's notes to be very concise, and extremely helpful. With few words, he gives some wonderful insight into the scriptures.
I love the ESV version. My new calf skin leather bible has a wonderful "feel" to it, and I love the smell. It is "limber" and has a good feel in my hands. It was a bit pricey, but at 55 years old, this very well may be my last bible! A quality bond, packaged bible like this should last for decades.
