5.0 out of 5 stars Best Resource Any Bible Reader, Student or Scholar should have
The ESV Study Bible is great. One of the best tools I have invested in. It has always helped me in giving good information even in the difficult to understand verses. Although the level of English is at College level, it is easy to understand.
Really happy that Amazon has these in stock and I always get them on the 2nd day. Have bought over 3 of these for my friends...

2.0 out of 5 stars no table of contents
I love the ESV study Bible, but the kindle edition has no table of contents and the only way to easily navigate is to use the slide at the bottom and blindly guess where you will end up in the Scriptures. For that reason alone, I could not give it more than a 2 star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the weight!,
This review is from: ESV Study Bible (Black) (Bonded Leather)A great translation with detailed commentary as well as maps and supplemental info. A perfect study Bible. I highly recommend it even though it is a touch heavy,
4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful reference study bible,
This review is from: ESV Study Bible (Hardcover)I recommend this bible reference text for anyone wanting to know more about the bible. The material is well researched and the long list of contributory biblical scholars is impressive. There are numerous helpful diagrams, maps and charts to assist the reader. At almost 2800 pages the hardcover edition is a little heavy to carry around, but well worth the investment.
5.0 out of 5 stars Olive Personal SIze ESV Study Bible - A Work of Art..Simply Beautiful!,
This review is from: ESV Study Bible, Personal Size (TruTone, Olive, Ce (Imitation Leather)I love this bible, the quality is excellent. I've compared most translations, and while I like something about all of them, I just keep going back to the ESV. The cross cover is beautiful, but the inside is as well. The colored in-text maps are much more helpful than the b&w which all my other bibles have. It has a wealth of good in-depth notes and helps, and will probably take the place of all my other books in my bookcase. It's basically a whole bookcase in one easy to carry lightweight bible. I love the fact that the print size of the bible text is larger than the study notes, because they feel that the Word of God is much more important than the notes of man, and I agree. The print of course is a little small, but that's to be expected in a bible with this much info., but yet in a very handy carry size. If you can read those little pocket new testaments you shouldn't have any trouble reading this. I have previously owned the regular size esv study bible...key word being "previously"...I no longer have it because it was just so big and heavy...I just simply never used it or took it anywhere. This one is so much better, as far as size, and I think it will be my companion for many years to come...and where I go it will go.
5.0 out of 5 stars Best Bible Ever!,

And its my fav color! Great Buy!
5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing,
This review is from: ESV Study Bible (Hardcover)Just received this bible yesterday and love it already! It is a very good study bible and it comes with a lot of "add on" details and historical facts.
5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Study Bible,
This review is from: ESV Study Bible (Hardcover)I love this Study Bible, and the ESV translation. I've found this has been a great tool in my walk with Christ to help me understand the text and I think it helped me become a better studier as well. It's helped me slow down as I read, take one verse (or parts of a verse) at a time and chew on it. Since getting this Bible I've purchased multiple commentaries. It's a great introduction to further study aids, while something you'll continually use for something quick and short. Highly recommended. I use this Bible every day and do not regret purchasing it one bit.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource for a Convenient way to Read the Bible in Depth!,
This review is from: ESV Study Bible (Hardcover)LOVE this bible! Worth every penny!
It has introduction to every book so it sets you up with the background information needed to appreciate the story within its rightful context. It also introduces a lot of cultural issues at the time as well as some theological introductions.
The best part is that once you buy the bible, you can sign up for online ESV bible. So the bible itself is huge, but you can just carry a portable device with you, such as iPhone, iPad, Playbook, etc., and log online and every resource will be on there. That being said, I'd suggest you go for the "big" version and not the smaller "personal" version, as it lacks a few articles the big version has.
Strongly recommend this!
5.0 out of 5 stars amazing resource,
This review is from: ESV Study Bible (Hardcover)Tons of notes while you read the Bible. Gives you knowledge of the context, author, audience, and all sorts of little bits of information about the content of the passages. Great resource!
4.0 out of 5 stars ESV Study Bible,
This review is from: ESV Study Bible (Black) (Bonded Leather)I chose this study Bible because the text is of the English Standard Version, an essentially literal word-for-word type translation.
There are study notes at the beginning of each book of the Bible as well as for individual passages and verses. The notes themselves are of a theologically conservative Evangelical perspective. There is a concordance at the back of the Bible.
The text of the Bible is printed in a font that is very readable.
