YB4 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Bible for millennials if you don't mind printing/binding quality quirksAugust 20, 2018YBQuality: 2Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Allow me to address the quality point first: this Crossway product comes with a "lifetime" (whatever that means) warranty and as my factory-sealed copy arrived with a crumpled and incorrectly trimmed page, the manufacturer replaced promptly and at no cost to me in shipping or fees. However the factory-sealed replacement came with an aesthetically annoying bulge from a poorly made binding so now I keep landing at the end of Pentateuch every time I open the copy. maybe time to file for second replacement? (Yes, made in China, but so is your iPhone.) Also, don't get the smaller print version of this Study Bible unless you absolutely have to, even with perfect vision the thin pages and the print smaller than this one is a tough read.
Now about the ESV study content aspect of this edition. It is excellent, and unless you have a doctorate in theology, you will learn a great deal from the introductions to each and every book, side notes, and maps. The ESV is a very appropriate translation for our age, and the myriad of cross-references and sidebars will satisfy the most Web-minded ADD-scattered mind. You will start with an intro to Pentateuch hop to reading about Moises relationship with the Lord in the golden calf story, and the New testament reference to that instance. Hopefully you will remember to come back to finish the intro to Pentateuch next time.
Also on a side note the scholarly notes are non-indoctrinating and I find the interpretation well presented from a Baptist or an Anglican perspective.

Brenna5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Study Bible in all aspectsJanuary 29, 2018BrennaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I bought this Bible for my husband as a Christmas present. He had the personal size ESV study Bible by Crossway, but it was soft cover. He had mentioned that he really liked using this particular Bible, but he was concerned that the more he used it, the sooner the soft-cover version would fall apart. So, I found this one on Christianbook.com and knew he'd really like the feel of the TruTone faux leather and the nice sleek masculine design of the cover. All in all, he loves it! The only thing is that it is a little large, so we have not been able to find the right size Bible cover/carrier to fit it.

WBB5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Study ToolAugust 10, 2017WBBQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The ESV translation is very accurate. The study notes are top notch. For example, they cover translation issues, and provide cultural context surrounding the text, which actually helps clarify how to apply the tenets to today's issues.
The one thing I would like to see is a better quality leather cover. It is very thin for a Bible of this thickness.
