What People are Saying About This
"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 and Joseph Emerson Brown Professor of Christian Theology, 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; Radio 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

Clear & accurate translation
I love this Bible translation and the study pages better than any Bible I have ever owned. And now that my eyesight is waning I can still read this on my nook in as large of print as I need without the weight of a large print paper edition. I
I Love Bibles!!!
I used this translation quite extensively during my study of the book of Daniel. The prose of the scriptures in this translation is quite beautiful, but there are numerous inconsistencies and historical inaccuracies within even just the book of Daniel that the commentary and footnotes either fail to properly explain, hand-wave away, or ignore altogether. I realize that this was not meant for critical studies, but it would have been nice to see at least some acknowledgment of problems with the scriptures instead of simply presenting them as infallible. After all, the bible is a religious and political volume, not a historical one.
The ESV is an excellent bible translation, accurate and yet more readable than some of its literal translation counterparts. The commentary ("study") part of this bible is excellent as well, and far more thorough than any other that I've encountered. it takes a generally conservative evangelical approach in the commentary.

The editors of this study bible believe that the bible itself is an incarnation of God. They believe that God has two sons, Jesus Christ and the Bible itself. No, they don't say this explicitly, but it is the underpinning of everything they do say, every approach to Biblical exegesis and annotation. There are so many profoundly wrong-headed, blindsided misinterpretations of scripture in this study Bible it is sickening and deeply sad. A violation of Holy Writ on every page and from every possible angle. I had to take a shower after returning this volume.
