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.

Pr. Dan5 Stars Out Of 5Love ItFebruary 23, 2017Pr. DanQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The ESV Reader's Bible is fantastic! I love it! The cloth over board cover feels great in the hand. It's the perfect size. It's so easy to lose track of time while reading without the distractions of verse numbers, cross references, and many of the other things that clutter most Bibles. For this price, this Bible has incredible value. Highly recommended.
Pslauter5 Stars Out Of 5ESV Reader's Bible (TruTone, Brown/Walnut, Portfolio Design)January 3, 2017PslauterQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I recently received a copy of the ESV Reader's Bible in Trutone. This Bible is very nice with un-distracted reading--no verse numbers or chapter/passage headings. Also, the layout is single column with a generous +9pt font. I also like that this Bible offers two ribbon markers vs. one--making it easier to read out of the OT and NT at the same time; or perhaps leave one ribbon marker in the Poetry/Wisdom section while the other one is for your daily Bible reading in other books. The color of the paper is more of a cream color than normal Bible paper and makes reading easy on the eyes and a joy. I highly recommend this Bible for its readability, size and quality of materials.
Give a reader's Bible a try, you will not regret it!

ReillyBC, CanadaAge: Under 18Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Possibly the best bible reading experience out there.January 6, 2016ReillyBC, CanadaAge: Under 18Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5After reading in this Bible for a while, I can say for a fact that this Bible is being sold for much less that what it is worth.
I have a couple leather Bibles kicking around, and I love them, but something about this Bible makes a hardcover binding seem like the perfect fit. Because really, this edition is meant to read and feel like an everyday hardcover novel. And not many novels these days come out in TrueTone or leather editions. So yes, the hardcover works well. The Bible comes in a slipcase, which bears a pattern that corresponds to the endpapers in the Bible itself - a nice detail.
Another reason hardcover works so well is because the text block is so amazing, it would be a shame if the cover competed for attention. I can honestly say there is nothing wrong with this paper. A few years ago, when a book block was printed in China, that meant it was poor quality. Not anymore, and certainly not with Crossway. The only paper I have seen better than Crossway's China paper is Jongbloed's, and I wouldn't blame anyone for liking the China stuff more. The paper is brilliant white and super smooth.
The printing itself is spectacular. The page could not be laid out better, and the printing is sharp and consistent. The words of Christ are in black; however, book titles, page numbers, and the scripture headings (eg Ezra 2:7-6:2) are printed in a lovely red. The whole presentation is, in my opinion, perfect. We just need to get Crossway to start new paragraphs when new people start talking.
So yeah. Oh, and it comes with two decent ribbons. I have paid $200 for Allan bibles with book blocks that could not even come close to this one. So for $19, I suggest you throw it in your cart with your next book purchase. You won't regret it. I highly recommend this as a gift.
