My second time reading through the Bible in a year. I actually used the Bible Gateway app to break it up into daily readings. Highly recommended. ( )

Hardback Bible with centre-column cross-references and a concordance, and the English Standard Version's acclaimed accuracy, this Bible is a great way to get deeper into Bible study. The English Standard Version is a highly accurate translation of the Bible from the original sources. It sits in the classic stream of word-for-word Bible translations, using the Revised Standard Version as a base, but incorporates all the most recent advances in modern language use. It combines the utmost accuracy with readability and literary beauty. The Translation Oversight Committee and Translation Review Board are composed of evangelical scholars from many different denominations and from various countries. Setting aside doctrinal difference and personal preferences they have striven to render the closest possible equivalent to the original in modern English. Accurate yet readable word for word Bible translation Suitable for in-depth study and for personal devotional use Retains the literary beauty much-loved in classic Bible translation Ideal for public reading and memorization Centre column cross-references Concordance (Binding under jacket is black balacron board with gold foil)

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

The new English Standard Version TM translation is founded on the belief that the words of the Bible are the very words of God. Setting itself apart from other translations by sacrificing neither accuracy nor readability, the ESV is an essentially literal translation that seeks to duplicate the original texts while taking into account the differences between modern English and the original languages.Relying on the work of more than 50 Bible scholars, as well as the input of a 60-member, multi-denominational Advisory Council, the translation committee chaired by J.I. Packer realized its goals of word-for-word precision and accuracy, literary excellence and readability, and depth of meaning. Written in language beautiful enough to be used for public reading, clear enough for preaching and devotions, and trustworthy enough for academic study, the ESV sets a new standard -- and is truly a Bible for all people.
