Driven by the conviction that the Bible is a unified message of God’s grace culminating in Jesus, the ESV Gospel Transformation Bible is a significant new tool to help you see Christ in all the Bible, and grace for all of life.
The Gospel Transformation Bible features all-new book introductions and gospel-illuminating notes written by a team of over 50 outstanding pastors and scholars. This specially prepared material outlines passage-by-passage God’s redemptive purposes of grace that echo all through Scripture and culminate in Christ. The notes not only explain but also apply the text in a grace-centered way. Focusing on heart transformation rather than mere behavior modification, their points of application emphasize the Hows and Whys of practical application to daily living—in short, how the gospel transforms us from the inside out.
The Gospel Transformation Bible equips both new and seasoned believers with a gospel-centered reading of Scripture, enabling God’s people to see that the message of the Bible is a unified one—"to testify to the gospel of the grace of God."

Heath2 Stars Out Of 5Modern day devotional bible lack somethingJune 25, 2015HeathQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 2The Gospel Transformation came up short for my expectations. Honestly it's a very tough thing to conjure up the deep spirituality of men that lived 200 or more years in the past. Honestly for me the Matthew Henry Study Bible is superior, as it reminds you all throughout the bible of Jesus Christ. The team that put this gospel transformation bible together probably meant well, but today's modern theologian is too far removed from the quite days of the past, to sit down and write the beautiful things that need to be written about Christ. As for study bibles, I'm not a huge fan, I prefer commentaries that are dedicated to each book of the books of the bible, study bibles don't have the necessary exhaustive scholarship to satisfy my needs.
DeDe19535 Stars Out Of 5Great Bible!June 15, 2015DeDe1953Quality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I have been pricing and reading reviews for months before purchasing my new ESV translation. Font is easy to read and pages do not stick together. I am enjoying using this Bible which ties all scripture to the Gospel. One note: I ordered the burgundy and (to me) it appears more of a brown.
mrs poe5 Stars Out Of 5ESV Gospel Transformation BibleDecember 13, 2014mrs poeQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Really excellent, very glad I received it as a gift, have been wanting to purchase this translation since I heard about it last year.
ewiasAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Connects the DotsJuly 22, 2014ewiasAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5I bought this S/B more out of curiosity thinking that if it didn't meet my needs, I would give it away to a family member. I normally use the Reformation S/B and ESV S/B. The ESV S/B sits on my desk because it is too big/heavy to lug around but it is my all around go to Bible. If you want a good companion Bible to lug around--this one works great. I prefer the Reformation Bible though as it includes theological essays. For example, in Matt. 28, this S/B ties in Gospel with discipleship--very well done. The Reformation S/B has typical notes but also includes an essay on Sacraments.
Construction wise-I bought the genuine leather and it is well constructed. The letters don't bleed through the text too much. The font works extremely well and my favorite out of all my Bibles. Wish there were thumb indexes but at this stage, really don't need them anymore.
Final thoughts: I recommend it as a solid addition to a more technical S/B. The S/B reminds you why you are reading it, and how it applies to Jesus. It is sometimes easy to forget that the Bible is one unified book, but this S/B connects the dots.
WardisAuAge: 25-34Gender: male2 Stars Out Of 5For the price, I'm not impressed.June 4, 2014WardisAuAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 2Value: 2Meets Expectations: 2Best part of this Bible (other than the inspired Words of God of course) is the calfskin. It's the softest, most flexible-yet-durable cover I've ever felt on a Bible. If this was a review just for the cover, it would be 5 stars.
I was disappointed with some things other than that. The main disappointment was that many (hundreds) of the pages were poorly-printed, and even the gold print on the spine is poorly-printed. None of it is illegible, but some parts are very faded and frustrating to read. I emailed Crossway about it, and they sent me a new one, but it had the exact same problem! For the price of this Bible, I expected a much better printing job.
One more issue I had with it was the study notes. They never seem to answer any questions I run into when studying the Bible. Now don't get me wrong. I LOVE the gospel. I wouldn't have bought this Bible if I didn't. But oftentimes the notes seem to go beyond displaying the gospel from a passage to writing the gospel into a passage where it isn't. I won't quote anything specific, but for an example, in some teachings of Jesus when He is teaching on the law (not preaching the gospel in that moment), the notes sometimes try to overlay a post-resurrection understanding of the gospel over what Jesus is saying. Not just point to it, but they try to make it look like that's what Jesus is saying. I'm sure many people will be mad at me for saying that, but that's how I feel about the notes. I bought an ESV Study Bible, and am much happier with it.
