"Retaining the majesty of language with the clarity of thought, the English Standard Version is a grand accomplishment."Dr. Ravi Zacharias,Author and Speaker"The ESV is the text I have been waiting for my entire life. I appreciate greatly both its fluency of language and its lucidity of expression, thanks to the brilliant work of the translation team. We owe them a very great debt."Rev. Ranald Macaulay,Christian Heritage, The Round Church, Cambridge"After preaching out of the same version for over 10 years, I switched to the ESV Bible. I find it both accurate and easily readable, which is a rare combination."Francis Chan,Author of Crazy Love"I thank God for the ESV. It combines up-to-date accuracy in the text and absolute faithfulness to the words of Scripture with a literary skill and beauty in the translation which, in my judgment, is unsurpassed."Eric J. Alexander,Retired Pastor, St. George's-Tron Parish Church, Scotland"At last a translation that majors on accuracy, combined with a modern, fluent style. I am confident that in time the ESV will become the standard translation for the English-speaking world."The Rt. Rev. Wallace Benn,Bishop of Lewes, England
