Not only is this a great resource for any Christians who wants to have a Study Bible, but also for pastors due to the large amount of articles at the back of the Study Bible on various topics of church life. The introductions to each book of the Bible are very extensive as well and allows one to give a vast overview on the setting of the book before one starts to readstudy a book in the Bible.
This is an excellent resource! I'd used 3 Study Bibles previously (Ryrie, NIVSB, MacArthur SB), with the MacArthur Study Bible being very good, but I must say that the ESV Study Bible is the best I've seen. The quality of the notes is outstanding, with respected scholars such as Andreas Kostenberger, Wayne Grudem and Thomas Schreiner contributing. I encourage young adults at our church to buy one as it helps with personal growth and preparing Bible studies.
Even though my preference is NIV, this ESV study bible hands up is sitting there among the top study bibles in the market. It is an absolute essential to be a part of your study bible library. The commentary, articles and resources written by a wide range of contributors are of the highest quality, notwithstanding the formal equivalence (word for word) excellent translation. There is also an accompanying access code so you can read it (the whole book) through the internet. The commentary and study notes accompanying the biblical passages are almost a multi volume commentary book if printed separately. This is the best value!
The ESV Study Bible is a fabulous competitor for the NIV study Bible in that the Bible college student will find great depth and width in the scripture commentary.
For many years I used the Revised Standard Version, but when the ESV arrived I was one of the first to purchase a copy. Over the years I have used and looked at various study Bibles, but I often found them too brief, or they did not have any notes on the verses I really wanted more information. By contrast the ESV Study Bible almost always has everything you need - introductory and background essays, outlines, summaries, tables, notes, maps, drawings, all helpful and comprehensive. The ESV translation is brilliant, and the ESV Study Bible matches the translation's brilliance.
