ESV Study Bible

The new ESV Study Bible debuts next week. It has been getting a lot of hype in the blogosphere. Crossway has been doing a good job of promotion. I have been enjoying reading through the ESV this year, so I'm curious to see what the Study Bible looks like. I have not been a big Study Bible fan in the past (Mrs. Soren has the NIV Study Bible and it's HUGE), but it is hard to ignore the hearty endorsements from people whom I respect.

Although I have some very good Bible software, I've always been a "book guy." I would rather read a printed commentary than read it off a computer screen. But it's easier to take my laptop to Starbucks than all my books.

Okay so this is probably the most boring post of the week. You get what you pay for.

It should be good. I'v seen the notes on one. The problem is that these guys are reformed and it will obvious in certain texts. Hopefully they'll offer some balance but we shall see.

Dude, don't be so hard on yourself. That's not the most boring post this week. Your previous post was considerably more boring. JK.

ESB is excellent ... I didn't know about the study Bible coming out until yesterday.

The bookstore I work for, Scripture Truth Book Co. will have the ESV Study Bible available starting tomorrow, Oct. 15th for the following prices:

ESV Study Hardcover- $32.99
ESV Study Tru Tone Brown- $52.49
ESV Study Gen Black- $62.99

Our shipping rates are very reasonable. No more than $4-6 dollars, depending upon the price.

I’ve been waiting for over a year for this bible. I was able to review a copy yesterday and I thoroughly enjoy it! I got the Tru-Tone Natural Brown and I must say, it’s a beautiful Bible!

I’ve used the ESV Reformation Bible since it came out. This new ESV Study Bible is different enough to make a good companion.
