Regular Father5 Stars Out Of 5good for your soul, bad for your backAugust 15, 2022Regular FatherQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5as other reviewers have stated, this Bible is chock-o-block full of notes and articles. the thing weighs... well, a lot! however, there is nothing quite as satisfying as plonking this behemoth in my lap in the morning and going deep into scripture. every book gets a lengthy introduction and there are explanations, expositions, and historical context covering every page. one could read a single verse every day and spend a lifetime chasing interconnected thoughts and theological information all within one cover. I recently decided to take it to church on Sunday, even though it takes up nearly a whole seat by itself, and after wheeling it in on a handcart, I was able to dig in deeper even as my pastor was delving into the book of James. After hiring two large men to carry it back to my car, I decided that this will be the Bible I bring from now on. Even with the unnatural wear and tear it puts on my suspension and transmission driving it to church, the benefits far outweigh the relative inconvenience of loading it into a tractor trailer every Sunday.
Phill3 Stars Out Of 5Love the ESV Study Bible, Disapointed with the Leather and QualityJuly 29, 2022PhillQuality: 2Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2The Good:
The ESV Study Bible itself is fantastic. Notes are wonderful and the translatoin is my favorite because it balances literal translation with readbility. It also included great maps and essays on many topics.
The leather quality is a major let down. Not at all premium. Very thin and not top or whole grain. Plus the stitching around the edge in uneven in many spots. Wanted to return and maybe exchange it but got really busy. Such a shame to be calling this a premium Bible. Feels deseptive and coming from a Bible producing company this does not sit will with me.
Great content, very disapointing form factor largely due to cheap leather and workmanship. Sadly this seems to be the nicest ESV study Bible availible which is disappointing. I am only selecting that I would recomend this becasue it is currenly all that there is
BartonWStone5 Stars Out Of 5This Thing is a Chunk (In a good way)June 28, 2022BartonWStoneQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5You may have heard that the bible is sharper than any two-edged sword. While this may be true in the spiritual sense, you can also actually use this bible as a weapon. If the devil comes after you with this thing, give this thing a swing and he'll be knocked out for a good two hours. This study bible is filled to the brim with content.
On a serious note, the bible is of pretty nice quality. I hope that that means it'll last. It comes with a warranty from crossway, so you should be good no matter what. The essays and study notes are clearly evangelical, but no particular affiliation to a specific theology is felt. I enjoy the comments and perspectives from the inerrancy perspective and feel they are at least compelling to consider. This is by no means what you'll be reading for reading's sake. There are pages with only a couple of verses and the rest of the page is full of notes. Definitely only a bible for when you are seriously studying specific scriptures or topics. That said, I've learned quite a bit from the study notes and essays and look forward to continuing use of this bible.

This Bible fills the blanks and is great at explaining the writers and books of the Bible. A classic.
Stacey5 Stars Out Of 5For the long termNovember 12, 2021StaceyI gave this gift to a friend and had a monogram engraved on the front. It was beautiful. It's a heavy book, but filled with helpful info, especially for a new learner. I might buy one for myself ;)
