    I just took them out of the box and the covers are already looking bad around the edges just from talking them out of the slipcover and putting them on my shelf. They are also heavier than I expected. I wouldn't have bought them if I had seen them in person.

    It does what it's supposed too. If you have 15 minutes or more to relax and let yourself get lost in the Word; this chapter-free, verse-free edition helps a lot accomplish that goal. Reading copious amounts of the Bible in one sitting helps make a birds-eye view of connections in the Word that segmented Bible study (or reading) ever can. For over 20 years now I have been in the habit of reading the entire book of Ecclesiastes on Thanksgiving Day, and the entire book of Job on Christmas. I have done it the last two you years with this Readers Edition, and it is defiantly a more enjoyable experience.

    My normal go-to translation is NASB because I love how technically stringent it holds to the Greek. But for ease a reading, the ESV has been a new and enjoyable translation experience for me. I dont like how the 150 chapters of Psalms are not labeled though. I think this should have been the one exception to the Readers Edition format. People have come to know certain Psalms by their chapter titles (23rd Psalm, 91st Psalm...etc.), and it is frustrating to be looking at a bunch of 1 page or 2 page passages without either a chapter reference or Psalm title to give you an idea if you want to read that Psalm or pass on to something that feels more relevant at the moment. When you read the next Psalm, it all ends up feeling like a jumbled cluster of unassociated thoughts and topics that hinder the goal to get caught up in the reading experience. Without chapters in the Psalms, I simply dont know where Im at or where Im going when reading it. I suppose the structure of the book of Psalms doesnt lend itself to the Readers Edition format very well.

    This is not a replacement for what most would consider their regular Bible. It is a special tool for the person who wishes to carve out more time in their life to simply absorb large amounts of Gods Word into their heart without distractions.

    Since becoming a Christian, I have struggled with reading the Bible. I understand its significance to all Christians, but found it hard to read. I tried multiple translations and formats, including Study Bibles, Chronological Bibles, all without much success. I really began to question why I was having so much trouble. This all changed when I got the softcover ESV Reader's Bible. I am a reader, always have been, and as soon as I saw the Bible in the "familiar" format (like a book, printed on real paper) I began to devour it. As other posters have said, I have sat down to sit on the word for a bit (not surprisingly, this brings me great comfort) and look up to find hours have passed and I have covered many pages. I am not put off by the lack of chapter and verse cues for two reasons. One, as mentioned, there is an index in each book (I find it very handy when wanting to discuss with others), and two, I have several other Bibles the have those markings. I have promised myself the gift of the hardbacked set once I finish reading (and re-reading, it seems) the softcovers.

    I completely recommend this set to everyone, it really offers a different perspective on the Word.

    Great idea to present the Bible as it was written in the original manuscripts, without verse or chapter numbers, commentary, or cross-referencing. These are all important helps for studying the Bible, but to read the Bible like a book, this is a great resource.

    The quality of the binding could be improved; however, considering the price and the materials included, I give this product 5 stars.
