"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 and Teacher, desiringGod.org; Chancellor, Bethlehem College & Seminary; author, Desiring God
"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, 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 Centennial 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; Founder, Revive Our Hearts and True Woman
"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, Late 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, Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC
"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

Now, a word on the ESV translation itself. The positives of the ESV is that it is readable and understandable for the most part. However, this is a mostly typical translation that displays an obvious trinitarian bias. It contains countless examples of theologically motivated mistranslations of the text. Fortunately not all trinitarian translations are created equal, some are more scholarly than others and render so-called trinity "proof-texts" correctly (the NABRE is one such example). But one egregious betrayal of good translation principles is that the ESV, like just about every other translation on the market, obscures and removes the name of God (which is the tetragrammaton YHWH) typically rendered Jehovah (or Yahweh). They replaced it with the title "LORD". The Bible is clear that no one should add or take away from God's word (Rev. 22:18, 19). These translators, however, have removed God's name which occurs almost 7,000 times in the Hebrew scriptures. If Jehovah approved of such a removal, then why would his name occur in the Bible more than any other?
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.
By Jenna on May 4, 2020
The ESV text: I've spent most of my life reading a translation that is admittedly more readable (ie, more like reading a newspaper article) than the ESV. But that's not to say the ESV is hard to understand. Far from it! There are some passages I understand better for having read them in the ESV. And if words, as well as thoughts, are important (and I believe Jesus said they are, in Matthew 5) it's good to have access to an "essentially literal" translation like the ESV.
The book itself: It's not small, and it's not light. I cannot imagine too many people holding it in their hands to read. This is definitely a tabletop book! But the text (both the Bible text and that of the study notes) is easy to read. My 50-plus year old eyes have no trouble reading this study Bible.
The price: I still can't get over the fact that I was able to have such an invaluable resource as this hardcover ESV Study Bible delivered to my door for approximately $40 plus tax! This ESV Study Bible is a library in itself. In terms of quality and value, it's second to none in my opinion.

The ESV is not my favourite translation but I struggled to get a KJV with the following feature: to jump to a particular position it is possible with this Bible to tap the book, then chapter, and then page to the desired verse (thankfully the verses are numbered! One other ESV didn't have the verses). I've tried two other Bibles that didn't seem capable of this "easy navigate" feature and so then finding a particular verse becomes cumbersome. To navigate this Bible open it up (read it), tap top area of display to get menu, tap GO TO, scroll down (swipe) to and tap desired book, then tap on desired chapter, then page along to the desired verse. Reasonably quick! May God bless you.
Another helpful feature is the "Index" facility where you are able to type in a short code for each book and then a chapter number and you can quickly go to that new reference. So, for instance, if you're currently reading in Isaiah chapter 53 and need to quickly jump to John chapter 3, you simply hit the facilities key on the Kindle, click down to "Index" and type in "Jn 3" and there you are. I find this a much quicker system for re-direction than many others.
I have a number of study type Bibles and find this one to be the best (from my personal point of view)
