ESV Study Bible, TruTone, Brown/Cordovan Portfolio Design
I love this bible. It's easy to understand and easy to look for extra information about a particular text. I am not a bible expert, and the study guide, or explanation of almost every text, really help me absorb the information. I also like the introduction to every bible book. English is my second language, and I find that this bible is very easy to understand....
I am so happy that this bible is everything that I expected....
Thank YOU Lord,

1. This study bible is superbly constructed. The illustrations, outlines etc., page quality have no equal (especially in it's modest price range). The tru-tone quality is great and the Bible will lay flat right out of the box
2. The study notes in the ESV study Bible really are in a league of their own for a conservative Evangelical Protestant standpoint. Apart from wishing there was a red letter edition I would recommend anything from novice to theologian to purchase one of these Bibles.

You're going to use it for life. Why not get it?
I couldn't be happier with this edition of the ESV Study Bible. Well, maybe if it came with wide-margins but then it would be like carrying a child! Other than that, it's really a fine investment. If you're going to use such a marvelous resource as thisÃ¢ÂÂa good translation along with all the helpful commentary and top notch articles in the backÃ¢ÂÂyou should get it in a good quality leather. Feels and even smells wonderful!

A large Bible study library in one volume
CrosswayÃ¢ÂÂs ESV Study Bible came out in 2008 and has been one of the most popular study Bibles on the market. With its vast amount of quality features, itÃ¢ÂÂs not hard to understand why. With 20,000 notes and 50 articles, the scope of this Bible is so large that it seems to contain a full library of Bible study materials. ItÃ¢ÂÂs no wonder the list of contributorÃ¢ÂÂs takes six pages. This Bible also included an extra surprise that I didnÃ¢ÂÂt expect.
Cover and Binding
This edition is TruTone Brown Cordovan with Portfolio Design. ItÃ¢ÂÂs one of the nicest imitation leathers that IÃ¢ÂÂve seen. I love browns and tans for Bible covers and I especially love the look and feel of this one. It doesnÃ¢ÂÂt feel cheap at all. It has an elegant look and a nice grain. The outer perimeter is stitched. The liner is a thick vinyl/paper that is also brown to match the cover.
The binding is Smyth sewn. It has no problem lying flat.
Paper and Print
The paper is 30 GSM. That sounds like it should be very thick paper, but it feels thinner than that to me with about average paper and opacity. There is some show-through, but itÃ¢ÂÂs not bad at all.
The main font is Lexicon 9/10. The print is just the right amount of darkness and is very consistent. Headings are maybe an 8-point and are italic. The notes are much smaller. IÃ¢ÂÂm just guessing, but maybe a 6-point.
The text is in single-column paragraph format. References are located on the inner margin and are keyed to the text with letters. They also include the verse numbers in bold, making them easy to find quickly. Translation notes are placed under the text and are keyed to the text with numbers. Commentary notes are in double-column format and appear under the translation notes. They show the verse number in bold. The notes also include the portion of text they key to in bold. Some notes have titles that are highlighted and in italics. These notes apply to large passages, spanning many verses.
At the top of the left page is the book name, chapter, and verse that starts on that page and on the right page is the book name, chapter, and verse of the last verse on the page. The color for highlights is an earth-tone tan/green. This color appears throughout the Bible in tables, charts, chapter numbers, etc. I like the earth-tone look and feel.
The book introductions are very detailed and average around 5-6 pages (depending on the size of the book). Information covers author and title, date and location, theme, purpose, occasion, and background, key themes, history of salvation summary, timeline, and a detailed outline. Some books have maps showing the setting of the book and a section that covers a key event in that book.
There is a vast amount of notes in this Bible. The box says 2 million words with 20,000 notes. I didnÃ¢ÂÂt count. IÃ¢ÂÂm just taking their word for it. Like any study Bible with commentary the notes are going to be theologically biased, and like every study Bible I review, I caution readers to do their own study and not just rely on the notes in the Bible. All notes are written by fallible man and should always be cross-examined. I use notes only as a guide or for a second opinion. With that said, most of the notes in the ESV Study Bible offer more than one point of view. As an example, the note for Genesis 1:26 for Ã¢ÂÂusÃ¢ÂÂ discusses the view of God speaking with angels and the view of God speaking to Himself. This note does draw a conclusion, but at least another view is discussed. Many notes give references to similar passages or passages that explain and substantiate the note. There are also lots of Hebrew and Greek definitions and explanations. The notes are very extensive and probably average about half the page.
This Bible is filled with articles (50). Most span many pages, and some, like the one on Biblical Ethics, cover many subtopics. Some of the articles are doctrinal based and are heavily biased theologically. There are also many articles about studying the Bible, manuscripts, the original languages, reading the Bible, interpretation, the cannon of Scripture, Biblical archaeology, and much more. These are by far my favorite articles because IÃ¢ÂÂm very interested in the canon and Hebrew and Greek. IÃ¢ÂÂm grateful that Crossway included them.
The concordance is 77 pages with three columns per page. There is actually more entries than I expected. There are 56 entries for Ã¢ÂÂGodÃ¢ÂÂ.
Bible Reading Plan
IÃ¢ÂÂve come to expect a Bible to have a Bible reading plan. TheyÃ¢ÂÂve put a lot of thought into this reading plan. It has a one-year plan that gives you four readings every day. First is Psalms and Wisdom Literature, then Pentateuch and History of Israel, then Chronicles and Prophets, and finally Gospels and Epistles. This gives you four sections every day. Each of the sections is carefully planned out. The readings from Psalms and Wisdom Literature are designed to be appropriate for the beginning and end of the year. The Pentateuch and History of Israel takes you through the five books of Moses, then chronologically through the Old Testament. The Chronicles and Prophets are also set up chronologically. The Gospels and Epistles are grouped by author. This is a great reading plan for people like me who like to skip around. This allows you to skip around and still read systematically.
Aside from the more than 200 color maps in the text, there are 15 maps in the back. TheyÃ¢ÂÂre full color and printed on very thick paper. TheyÃ¢ÂÂre labeled well, making it easy to find what IÃ¢ÂÂm looking for. I would like to have an index to maps, but if there isnÃ¢ÂÂt an index I want the maps labeled like these are.
I love the ribbon in this Bible. It is copper color and is much thicker than most ribbons. It greatly adds to the elegant feel of this Bible. If I were to make any changes I would have at least two ribbons.
Free ESV Online Study Bible
Just when I thought it couldnÃ¢ÂÂt get much better I read the card that came with the Bible and found that it gives me an access code that gives me free access to the ESV Online Study Bible. The online edition contains everything that is found in the print version plus new features. You can create your own notes, do searches, follow links, and listen to the ESV Bible in audio.
The ESV Study Bible is an amazing Bible. The amount of study material makes this a large study library. Of course to get all this material in one volume requires the Bible to be extra-large and heavy, but the quality of the notes and articles makes it worth it. It is a great study tool for teachers and preachers as well as students of GodÃ¢ÂÂs Word. I highly recommend the ESV Study Bible.
