The ESV Reader’s Bible was created for those who want to read the books of Scripture precisely as they were originally written. Verse numbers, chapter and section headings, and translation footnotes are helpful navigational and interpretive tools, but they are also relatively recent conventions. In the ESV Reader’s Bible they have been removed from the Bible text. The result is a new kind of Bible-reading experience in a volume that presents Scripture as one extended story line.
On the top of each page a verse range is included for orientation. Other features include a single-column text setting, readable type, and a book-like format. The Reader’s Bible is a simple but elegant edition, and is perfect for devotional reading, for extended Bible reading, or for focusing on the overarching narrative of the Bible.

Jim G.5 Stars Out Of 5We loved it!September 8, 2015Jim G.Quality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I got this Bible for our son. We loved the size of the volume and the layout of the pages. Added to that, we love the ESV translation!
Joel5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent!!July 17, 2015JoelQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The ESV Reader's Bible has been a real blessing to me as I am reading the Bible more than ever and understanding the flow of the text better!
The size of the Bible makes it very easy to hold. The line matching along with the font size makes for very comfortable reading. The binding is good quality. The look of the Bible (I have the hardcover edition) is excellent.
Overall, a good quality Bible at a very reasonable price that will enhance your reading of God's holy and precious Word!
Curt5 Stars Out Of 5Everything I've been waiting for in a BibleJune 29, 2015CurtQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I cannot say how much I enjoy this Bible. Reading it has confirmed what I had suspected: that verse numbers and double columns of text are unconscious, yet very real obstacles to fluid reading of Scripture. The Bible has always seemed to be something other than a "book" - a reference text, perhaps. But now it reads like a flowing story addressed to me; a story I can "lose myself in" and become a part of - and which becomes a part of me - just like what naturally happens when reading a good novel. I think I can finally understand the Scriptural idea of "eating the Word."
I have taken my copy to Bible studies, and have followed along in Church - and never have trouble finding a specific verse. In fact, I like how it naturally distances me from picking and choosing a verse here and there. The margins are wide enough to write notes, and underlining in pencil does not go through to the next page. I haven't yet had the time to properly test the binding quality - but it seems to me to be a very solidly and attractively-bound book, especially given the price (I have the hardcover cloth-bound version). The ESV is very accurate, but also more readable, in my opinion, than other literal-focussed translations. I feel like this is the Bible that I'll use for the rest of my life.
Francis of Oregon4 Stars Out Of 5Good Product, Good ValueDecember 13, 2014Francis of OregonQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5One might consider this a specialty Bible. As such, I use it for devotional reading. The simple layout without narrow columns, verse numbers and notes makes reading the Bible feel fresh again. Not that any of these features are bad, but only that it is nice not to have to work through them when the text is all you want. The pages are thin but the font, layout and book and slip-box features are very attractive. The thin pages do not compromise the reading experience, but won't take highlighting without bleeding and I suspect pen or pencil marks will not work well. The thin pages keep the size of the Bible comfortable. It sits vertically on my study desk within easy reach when I begin my devotions. I'm growing quite fond of the ESV version. I am happy with my purchase. A very good bargain at $20.
