5 Stars Out Of 5
Meets my expectations, happy with it
July 8, 2011
Definitely not a study Bible, which I knew and wanted because I love the size, font, red lettering, and the cover. I'm new to the ESV so I'm still on the fence, but it is what our church is changing to, so I got it for my Sunday carry. Seems pretty good so far. I am used to the NIV, but willing to give this a try. I'm not positive about this, but it seems like it is not as wordy as the NIV; like I've noticed that a sentence will leave out the last "and" when listing things that are separated by commas. Maybe sometimes when things are repeated to make a strong point in the NIV, it is not repeated in the ESV. I like it though, and I think it will be fine for just another translation.
