I really like the bible especially for new believers. I minister to student athletes and coaches and this particular bible meets their needs. I have become a fan of the ESV, but still love the NKJ and NAS. It is hard to find a study bible that is affordable and still has the helps and resources to guide the student and coach and this bible does that.
I have bought two of these Bibles, one for each of my teens. I really do like the commentary because it is written in a very understandable way. They outgrew their Kid's Quest Bibles and had some questions about things and needed answers. It was time for them to read and get answers for themselves and really learn to dig deeper. This Bible has been a big help.
Nothing new , the bible is all about Christ and his wonderful gospel (john 5:39, luke 24:24-27, I would ather say as Christ O fools and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have written!! Besides this translation ESV brings nothing new either than better and more beautiful ones ... I'll let each one discover the ancient paths ()
While I may get a leather-bound, ESV Gospel Transformation Bible, the hardback is just as good. Great notes, the print and readability is wonderful. I will say though, if you take off the paper cover, be aware that the cover will scratch very easy. Overall, I am highly satisfied!!!
