"The ESV is a dream come true for me. The rightful heir to a great line of historic translations, it provides the continuity and modern accuracy I longed for. Now the scope and theological faithfulness of the ESV Study Bible study notes is breathtaking. Oh how precious is the written Word of God."
―John Piper, Founder, desiringGod.org; Chancellor, Bethlehem College & Seminary
"The definitive clarity and beauty of the ESV Study Bible is extraordinary. In a world where words are distorted to mean anything, it is wonderful to have complete confidence in the reliability and truth of the Bible―so clearly and persuasively demonstrated by this world-class team of Bible scholars and teachers. For everyone who wants to understand God’s Word in a deeper way, the ESV Study Bible is an outstanding resource. I will be an avid user!"
―Joni Eareckson Tada, Founder and CEO, Joni and Friends International Disability Center
"Outstanding! The ESV Study Bible is a treasure―a beautiful volume, filled with a wealth of resources. It will be just as useful for the seminarian and long-time pastor as it will be accessible to the brand-new Christian."
―R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"The ESV Study Bible is an invaluable and inexhaustible resource―for those who already know and treasure God’s Word, as well as for the new generation of Bible students who have yet to discover the wonder and wealth of Scripture. I especially love the way the notes and articles highlight the great redemptive story and ‘connect the dots’ between the various portions and themes of Scripture. Full of rich insight, scholarly yet accessible―I am deeply grateful for this magnificent work."
―Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth, author; Bible teacher; host, Revive Our Hearts
"I was privileged to act as General Editor of the English Standard Version, and now that I look back on what we did in producing that version, I find myself suspecting very strongly that this was the most important thing that I have ever done for the Kingdom, and that the product of our labors is perhaps the biggest milestone in Bible translation in certainly the last half century at least, and perhaps more. And now, as Theological Editor of the ESV Study Bible, I believe that the work we have done together on this project has set an altogether new standard in study Bibles."
―J. I. Packer, Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College
"The ESV Study Bible is a tour de force: innovative production, beautiful graphics, and notes by outstanding scholars packed with useful information."
―Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC; President, 9Marks
"This is surely the most comprehensive study Bible yet! Serious students of the Bible will find this an invaluable aid to understanding the text, the background, and some key theological issues of the Bible. In addition to the reliable ESV text with notes, it has resources that no teacher or preacher should be without. Beautifully produced and accessible, it will also make a great gift for new Christians."
―Graeme Goldsworthy, Former Lecturer in Old Testament, Biblical Theology, and Hermeneutics, Moore Theological College

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 and they are all happy with it.
The Study Notes are definitely good. There are a ton of maps, charts and illustrations as well to aid you in your Bible Study.
NOTE: If you wish to have this Bible as a reference tool and you are going to leave this at home most of the time, buy the hard cover version. It costs less and is worth the money if you're not constantly going to turn its pages. If it's going to be your number one Bible where you will be taking it out and using it a lot, I suggest you pay the extra money and get the leather bound Bible. Leather is more durable than the Hard Cover if the Bible is going to be used a lot.
Also, there are some awesome Articles & Resources you get at the back of the original ESV Study Bible (larger in size - [....]) that you don't have in the print version of the ESV Study Bible, Personal Size. To reduce the Bible's size, they have included it as an online resource. So if you want those articles with you, in your Bible, where ever you go, think about getting the ESV Study Bible (link above) instead of the ESV Study Bible, Personal Size.

Type is a bit small for my old eyes but love it just the same.
Note: It is not a complete commentary. There are many times where there is a topic of interest in a verse but it is just not covered in the commentary.
He reads it every night. The inside is beautiful, with maps, timeline... (In colours). The notes are relevant and very informative.
NOTE: Does not offer the red lettering for Jesus' Words!.. To keep in mind if those are important for you! ;)
