The ESV Study Bible includes more than 20,000 notes, written specifically for the ESV Study Bible. These notes focus especially on understanding the meaning of the text, giving answers to frequently raised questions, and providing theological, historical, and archaeological background—all for the purpose of helping readers to understand the Bible in a deeper way.
The ESV Study Bible also provides a wealth of additional resources. Thus the introductions to each book include essential information about the author, date, and place of writing; an extensive chart of key themes; a summary of how the book fits in with the rest of the biblical storyline; a description of literary features; an outline of the book; and a large full-color map showing the setting of the book.
Another unique feature is the inclusion of over 50 helpful articles on topics such as the authority and truthfulness of the Bible, reading the Bible for application, the Bible in worship and prayer, the reliability of the biblical manuscripts, the relationship between archaeology and the Bible, an overview of biblical theology, and many more.
Other key resources include a system of 80,000 cross references and a concordance (which together facilitate easy location of important words, passages, and biblical themes). In addition, over 200 color charts, located throughout the Bible, provide clear, concise presentations of essential information.
- The ESV Bible text is set in highly readable 9-point type, in a single-column, book-text format.
- Section summaries are highlighted for easy location throughout the notes. Summaries provide an overview of each main section and correspond to the outline shown in the introduction for each book.
- Over 200 full-color maps printed throughout make events and places in the Bible come to life.
- Over 25,000 notes focus especially on understanding the Bible text and providing answers to frequently raised issues. Words from the Bible text are printed in bold for easy reference.
- Over 80,000 cross-references provide easy access to key words, passages, and themes throughout the Bible.

SandraD'sJourney5 Stars Out Of 5such a comfortable fit...September 19, 2016SandraD'sJourneyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I know this may not seem a typical beginning to a review, especially regarding that of a book! (smile out loud) I took months to research and look into the Bible that had what I was needing from page to page, the additional insights provided that were not over done, additional items such as maps, references, etc. Recently I lost everything dear to me in a sevre accident in a snow storm moving from Colorado to Arizona. Beginning again is a gift and one that I thank the Father for, ALWAYS. Yet, as a 45 yar old woman now starting over with nothing was heartbreaking. I decided that finding a new bible was what would be the start of hope again. I researched a long time and I am simply amazed that my bible feels as if it has been under my arm, chin, head, and so on forever! The beautiful leather is so soft and pliable, it is truly a beautiful bible but more than that, it is my most comfortable companion! AND NOW, MY FIRST FAMILY HEIRLOOM!
LDenetclaw5 Stars Out Of 5My wife needed a new study bibleNovember 25, 2015LDenetclawQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I am a seminary student and have come to appreciate academic level resources. When I came to school, I purchased another study bible and am not happy. After a time in school, have come to recognize good accessible go-to resources and this bible is an excellent one looking at scripture from a systematic level drawing on multiple viewpoints for the readers to understand and lean on for perspective. My wife had another study bible that was general and not helpful for gaining deeper understanding. This bible adds depth to her level of understanding in text, history, interpretation and visually with maps and timelines. I'm envious, but should not be as I have access to many commentaries in my current profession as a student. It is a tremendous resource and am happy I purchased for my wife. Oh, and the purple iris design will ensure that I don't "borrow" her bible for my own use. "Honey, I bought you this .357 magnum because I thought you'd like it..."
DavePortland, ORAge: 55-65Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5I should have bought an eBibleJanuary 2, 2014DavePortland, ORAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3On my first day of reading my ESV Study Bible, in one year, it is both enlightening and burdensome. I like the notes that explain the different theories of how the original text was written, the word meanings, and the description of pagan culture in comparison with biblical directives. However, the notes are not written as easy to read as the bible text. There are so many notes in Genisis 1-3. Plus, the 8 point type of the notes is unreadable without magnification, even under extra illumination. Since the majority of the study bible consists of the notes, most of the time I am using the magnifier. I should have bought an eBible, where I could just expand the note text with my fingers. That would work better for me.

There were plenty of purple pocket bibles or new testaments but I was SO excited when I found the ESV study bible. Thank you! I am more than thrilled with doing business with Christianbook.com. You are the best! Merry Christmas!
