Wow, that felt good. It made me feel like Paul Revere! I am super-excited about the English Standard Version Study Bible. I already purchased my copy (even though it will not be published until Oct. 15) because it was on sale. I have used the ESV since 2001 and like it for its accuracy and its readability. It sings like portions of the King James Version, but it is easier to read (like the NIV), while also being well-translated, like the NASB.
There are plenty of snippets of it that are coming out in order for you to preview this brand new study bible, including of five minute introduction on YouTube. Let me point you to some of them.
- The whole book of Jonah (pdf)
- An interview with the author of the notes on Jonah
- The introduction to the book of Revelation (pdf)
- A portion of the Romans introduction on the Ancient city of Rome
- The introduction to the gospel of Luke (pdf)
Finally, read this humorous blog about study bibles and this study bible.
