More About the Author

The English Standard Version (ESV) Bible is an essentially literal Bible translation that combines word-for-word accuracy with literary excellence, beauty, and depth of meaning.

First published in 2001, the ESV Bible has become trusted by millions of Christian leaders, pastors, and individuals in every part of the world.

The ESV Bible carries forward the trusted legacy of the Bible in English--the legacy established first in the Tyndale New Testament (1526) and the KJV Bible (1611). With this legacy as the foundation, the ESV Bible (2001) reflects the beauty and majesty of the original languages, first captured centuries ago by these early Bible translations.

But the ESV also provides the most recent evangelical Christian Bible scholarship and enduring readability for today. The ESV translation team was built on the trusted foundation of over 100 evangelical Christian scholars and pastors worldwide, committed to the truth, authority, and application of the Bible to all of life.

Customer Reviews

Its goal is to help reader’s understand the Bible in its unified message and apply the gospel to their everyday lives.
Randy A Brown
It's unique in demonstrating how the message of the Bible about God's love promises, points to, and culminates in Jesus.
David P. Craig
This Bible is different from the ESV Study Bible for it applies the gospel to the believer as they read the study notes.
Chris Land

If you run in the T4G/TGC/Challies/Justin Taylor circles you have certainly heard about the "Gospel-Centered" hermeneutic. Crossway produced this study Bible to help us to be Gospel-Centered by showing us Christ in all of Scripture. Unlike some study Bibles, you've probably even heard of most of the contributors. There are men like Miles Van Pelt (Kings and Chronicles), Michael Horton (Joshua), Darrin Patrick (Zephaniah), Kevin DeYoung (Ephesians), and JD Greear (Titus) as well as women like Elyse Fitzpatrick (Esther). The contributors include a mixture of scholars and popular authors. All their contributions went through the editing of Brian Chapell and Dane Ortlund. I recognized about 2/3 of the names and they are all very solid, conservative evangelical voices.

The book itself is quite striking. The hardcover is black with red and black stitching in the Smyth-sewn binding. The pastedowns and flyleaves are also a brilliant blood red. The Bible text is in the familiar Lexicon font, while the study notes are in Gotham. This gives it a fresh look from other study Bibles I've used. I rather liked it, despite the two-column format, which really can't be helped in a work like this. It really is a beautiful book. It also has the standard features you'd expect from an ESV such as maps in the back, the ESV reading plan, and even a topical index.

Of course, all this is meaningless if the content doesn't match the beauty of the book. To me, the biggest red flag when thinking about a "Gospel-Centered" hermeneutic comes in the story of the floating axe head in 2 Kings 6. There are some who say that the floating axe head reminds us of baptism while the stick Elisha used reminds us of the cross.

What's Unique About The Kindle Format of The Gospel Transformation Bible?

Like most Kindle books all the study notes, footnotes, and cross references are represented as links in blue highlights. Therefore, it's not like a paperback Bible or Hardback Bible where the notes are included at the bottom of each page. The beginning of each book of the Bible has each new section highlighted in blue. For example, Genesis has all 50 chapters highlighted in blue and by clicking on the chapter it will take you immediately to that chapter. Also, highlighted in blue at the beginning of each book are 6 sections: (1) An Introduction to each book of the Bible; (2) Author and Date; (3) The Audience the Book is addressed to; (4) The Gospel in "Genesis" or whatever book you are studying; (5) An outline of the book; and (6) Study notes for that book. If you are reading Genesis 30 and want to see the notes for that chapter the easiest way is to simply click on the blue notes in the text and that will take you to each note for the passage of study. There are "back" buttons to take you back to the passage you were reading in Genesis 30. It's a little cumbersome - it would have been better to have the notes on the same page, but if you are used to clicking the numbers for footnotes when you read on Kindle - you will be used to this process. The rest of my review will focus on the uniqueness of this outstanding gospel saturated resource.

What's Unique About the Gospel Transformation Bible's Notes?

(1) It's unique in how it handles applying the Scriptures. There are many good application study Bibles on the market today. Most of these Bibles focus on two aspects of application: (a) What should we do according to what this passage is teaching? and (b) Where should we be applying these truths?

What's Unique About the Gospel Transformation Bible's Notes?

(1) It's unique in how it handles applying the Scriptures. There are many good application study Bibles on the market today. Most of these Bibles focus on two aspects of application: (a) What should we do according to what this passage is teaching? and (b) Where should we be applying these truths? The Gospel Transformation Bible is unique in that it helps you focus on two other important elements of application: (c) Why we should apply the gospel daily; and (d) How we can apply the gospel daily. It guides us in having a proper motivation for obeying God - out of gratitude for His amazing grace. It also demonstrates how we are enabled by the power of the gospel to do what God calls us to do.

(2) It's unique in the fact that it shows how all the major themes of the Scriptures are integrated and how all these themes ultimately point to or find their fulfillment in the Lord Jesus Christ.

(3) It's unique in that it shows how each passage is a part of the flow of the gospel in the immediate context, but also in the over all thrust of redemptive history in the rest of the Bible.

(4) It's unique in that it demonstrates how the good news of the gospel is just as evident in the Old Testament as in the New Testament.

(5) It's unique in demonstrating how the message of the Bible about God's love promises, points to, and culminates in Jesus.

(6) It's unique in showing how the finished work of Christ matters not only in relationship to our past and our future, but especially in the present. We need the power of the gospel to help us in all the difficult realities of life - suffering, pain, decision making, identity issues, and so forth.
