Never thought about buying a "hardback" Bible, but wanted one to leave in a drawer at work, accessible to others. What a surprise! Love reading Oswald Chambers devotions. This is my first ESV version, which I am considering for any future Bibles, as well. It has a Smyth-sewn binding (why cannot everything?) and the pages are high-quality, feel-good, and easy to read without my reading glasses! It is formatted to read the Bible in a year, because of the spacing of the devotions. Highly recommend!
I have always admired and learned from the writings of Oswald Chambers. Over the past years I have used his Bibles for daily devotions, have worn out two devotional Bibles and am delighted to now have a new one. The English Standard Version of the Bible is new to me...so far I really like it.
