I had been looking for an ESV Bible that offered verse-by-verse yet without study notes. This Bible is exactly what I was looking for. I love the way the cover feels in my hands and the text size is very easy on my eyes. This is a gorgeous Bible that will last years & years if taken care of. Very pleased with my purchase!
I like the ESV Verse by Verse Bible a lot. It is made from high quality materials. The ESV translation is easy to read. The cross references are in smaller text size and located in the margins.
For me having the cross references in the margins makes it more difficult to use, especially since I have been used to cross references located at the end of each verse, in my favorite Bible of all times,
The New Analytical Bible and Dictionary of the Bible, KJV, published by | John A. Dickson Publishing Co. | Chicago. Unfortunately the Dickson Bible is our of print at this time.
The best Bible is the one you will read. So it doesn't much matter how expensive or how well made it is.
If you take to heart what you read in your Bible and apply it to your life it will change your life and the life of those you are around.
This is my favorite bible! For the record, I am a bible collector and own more than 10 Crossway ESV bibles but this is my favorite. As a preacher, the verse by verse is what drew me to the bible. The readability of the font size and format, verse by verse for easy finding, and good amount of room in columns makes this bible a must for anyone who teaches or preachers the word!
