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.

Like many I have become a fan of the ESV translation. While Crossway has had some binding problems this seems to be a common trend with many Bible publishers today. Glued bindings alone do not seem to hold up over time. Some glued bindings are obviously better than others but I am of the opinion that all bindings should be sewn and glued if possible for a sturdy overall product. The Crossway calfskin editions are simply wonderful! The cordovan calfskin found here on the thinline and also on the cordovan Classic Reference Edition are something to behold. This cordovan calfskin is like no other Bible cover I have seen or held. The owner will be quite pleased with the Bible. Nice 9.5 point type (unless your eyes are aging). I gave this Bible a 4 out of 5 only because like most Crossway Bibles it is also glued bound. I have to admit that the Crossway thinline editions tend to be sturdy when compared to some of their other glued Bibles. The Classic Reference calfskin editions (black and cordovan) along with the Heirloom Deluxe Reference ESV in black calfskin all have sewn bindings which is a plus. The ESV is one of the best translations currently available and the Crossway calfskin editions are some of the finest on the market. This is the way to go if you want to purchase a better quality ESV. Calfskin editions available here on Amazon are ISBN#'s 1581343507, 1581347065, 1581347057, 1581347006, 1581345984. God Bless.

This is a very attractive Bible. The cover has a great design, and feels nice to the touch. The size of the font is nice as well. This edition does not contain a large number of cross-references, however they are easy enough to attain with other resources. Although it is definitely not pocket-sized, this Bible is very light, and is not a burden to carry, unlike most study Bibles. It also has a ribbon marker attached to it, which is handy for marking a place that you want to quickly open to.

The ESV translation style is excellent. The wording is very precise and accurate to the originals, as well as pleasing to the ear. I would not recommend the ESV for a beginning reader, but anyone at least 12 years old should not have any trouble with it. There is the occasional word that I want to look up in a dictionary because I am not certain of its precise meaning, but the language is much more modern than the KJV.

The ESV also includes notes wherever the translators had some difficulty reaching a consensus. These notes provide a literal rendering where the English would not flow correctly, or possible alternatives if the translation is controversial.

Overall, I am very pleased with this Bible. Although I will still make use of my NASB Study Bible, I will take my ESV with me when I go places because it is light and portable. I will also use it as my primary reading Bible because I love the eloquent and accurate language. Coupled with some reference books, the ESV is a very effective Bible for study and for devotional reading.

When I opened the package from Amazon I was literally stunned by the outstanding quality of this Bible. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would! The Cordovan Calfskin Leather binding is truly marvelous. The color is somewhere between burgundy and brown. The genuine calfskin leather is thick yet soft and pliable. The inside of the cover is lined with genuine calfskin leather (most Bibles are lined with paper). The edges of the leather cover are actually SEWN for greater strength and longevity (most Bibles are glued). The binding is perfect in every way. I can find no flaws at all - and I am a stickler!

The print is small but extremely clear and readable. Although there are no references, there is a concise concordance and a section of full color maps, as well as a family register. The paper is thin, but high quality with no bleed-through.

The translation is the best to date. More accurate than the NIV, more consistent than the NASB, more readable than the KJV or NKJV. Certainly the most scholarly translation on the market right now. Endorsed by John Piper, R. C. Sproul, and Albert Mohler, Jr.

Even the box for this Bible is classy. Made to last a lifetime, I give this edition the highest endorsement I possibly can. Well worth the investment!

Is the NASB95 - the king of the literal bible translations dead? That must surely be the question on our minds. The answer is, "I'm not sure, but it's having a good run at it!".
Firstly my comparison - I compared 50 difficult verses. The NASB95 and ESV were way way out in front of all other versions in accuracy. I gave the NASB95 a couple of extra marks over the ESV, but there's not a lot in it.
Secondly, literalness. On a word for word basis the ESV actually seems a little more literal than the NASB95 in that it is much more thorough in translating all the little words, the "ands" and "buts" and so on, as well as allowing sentences to run on where they do in the original. On the other hand, the fact that it is a warmed over RSV shows through in a lot of verses that should ideally be re-worked in NASB style. However, the ESV sometimes seems to try harder in consistantly rendering the same Greek word as the same word in English - but not always, sometimes the NASB is more consistent. Conclusion - The ESV is more literal on the "forest scale", but the NASB is more literal in the "tree scale".
However, the NASB appears to be quite a bit more accurate with tenses. Sometimes these verses have important theological significance. e.g. Acts 13:48 NASB "had been appointed", and Mt 18:18 NASB "shall have been bound" are more accurate than the ESV equivilents which are carry overs from the RSV (and KJV).
Thirdly, readability. People are talking about the ESV being more readable than the NASB. I don't think there's a lot in it. The ESV has it's fair share of bloopers where the English is strained and the NASB is readable. Sometimes the NASB's lessor readability increases its literalness and correctness. Conclusion: I personally can't see the difference.
