The English Standard Version ESV stands in the classic mainstream of English Bible translations over the past half millennium The fountainhead of that stream was William Tyndale s New Testament of 1526 marking its course King James Version of 1611 KJV , the English Revised Version of 1885 RV , the American Standard Version of 1901 ASV , and the Revised Standard VersThe English Standard Version ESV stands in the classic mainstream of English Bible translations over the past half millennium The fountainhead of that stream was William Tyndale s New Testament of 1526 marking its course King James Version of 1611 KJV , the English Revised Version of 1885 RV , the American Standard Version of 1901 ASV , and the Revised Standard Version of 1952 and 1971 RSV In that stream, faithfulness to the text and vigorous pursuit of accuracy were combined with simplicity, beauty, and dignity of expression Our goal has been to carry forward this legacy for a new century.During the Reformation, a renewed interest in Scripture brought great light to the church and the world In The Reformation Study Bible, general editor R C Sproul aims to present the light of the Reformation anew by combining an accessible translation with study notes that stand firmly in the theological tradition of the Reformation.No other study Bible gives the reader assistance in understanding the great doctrines and themes of the Christian faith as found in the Scriptures Extensive notes have been researched and written by a team of than fifty scholars, including J I Packer, James Boice, and Wayne Grudem.All Christians that want to dig deeper in their study of Scripture will appreciate the Bible s many features, including section introductions, book introductions and outlines, comments on the biblical text, theological notes, charts, in text maps, and cross references.The first study bible based on the English Standard Version, The Reformation Study Bible is the perfect choice for men and women that want to study God s word in a language they can understand.

I can t believe I just rated the Bible on I think I gave five stars to Harry Potter too It s not like I can go higher though Anyway I read my Bible through in a year so I had to add it to my list
I got this study bible in 2006 after switching to the ESV translation a year or so prior I have found the notes especially helpful, relevant to the text, and decidedly Reformed without apology I would recommend this study bible to any Christian whether they are new converts or have been walking with the Lord for many years My only complaint is that the chapter and verse headings for each page starting verses for each are in the center of the top of the page and not on the edge, making thumbing t [...]
Eternal life giving I got the ESV a couple of years ago for Christmas and it has since become my favorite translation of the Scriptures This particular edition if formatted nicely and has helpful theological notes.
I have to mark this one Currently Reading because I don t see a day where I ll stop reading the Bible More than just a book, God s Word has transformed my life.
definitely not unbiased scholarship However, the scholarship is for the most part sound and you cannot run into any severe doctrinal issues while reading the notes of these men
It is difficult to imagine how a Bible can be called a Reformation Bible when it departs from the textual and manuscript evidence of the Reformation The changes in the underlying Greek of the New Testament, as well as deletions of entire verses of the ESV, ruin what could otherwise be an excellent tool for study Political correctness is in force, and I believe R.C Sproul knows better than to resort to this publisher s pressure in associating his name to the ESV, but perhaps the profit motive ove [...]
Finished my read through from Revelation Genesis
I deal in rare and ancient Bibles printed centuries ago, but for a daily reader or a personal study Bible this is the one I recommend Edited by Dr R.C Sproul whose church I attended for about ten years , this study Bible is in the English Standard Version, which is widely considered by Christian scholars to be the most accurate of the modern English translations, while still retaining a readable flow to the language The commentary notes in this Bible are in keeping with those of the famous Genev [...]
This will remain on my currently reading shelf as the foundation of Christianity and a complete and full accounting of the history of the world from creation through 70 AD and beyond.Now Reading Micah Chronological KJV using YouVersion Bible App.If you have trouble sticking with something, I highly recommend the YouVersion Bible App for iPod Phone or Android Sign up for one of the reading plans and the app will even set a reminder alarm at the time you normally read which helped me to be consist [...]
I used this Bible for almost daily readings for a little over two years, and I love it The ESV translation is a good one for study, as it is a bit less conversational than the NIV but still quite readable, and this study Bible has plenty of helpful information There is a clear agenda on the part of the editors, as every verse that could possibly point to limited atonement and specific election is highlighted and explained, and baptism of infants as a sign of covenant is drawn from a variety of S [...]
I am humbled by the journey just completed, inasmuch as I appreciate how little of what I ve read I truly comprehended I will do well to be in continuous study of the Bible, prayerfully and practically God bless.
Still used this my reading time in mornings.
It s good but not great.
I love this Study Bible It answers most of the difficult topics in the Bible concisely My only criticism is I would like a few notes
We are blessed to live in an age and society where we are virtually swimming in a sea of Bible study resources The amount of quality commentaries, books, lectures, sermons, study guides, courses, journals, and magazines available is staggering Along with those resources, study Bibles abound There are plenty of good ones and a few that easily qualify as great Over the years, one of my favorite study Bibles has been the Reformation Study Bible from Ligonier Ministry s publishing branch, Reformatio [...]
Currently reading perpetually.
This Bible is just okay for me The annotations are a little too brief compared to those in the ESV Study Bible, which I consider a better investment.
MY REVIEW One of the endorsements I read for this Bible said that this is the Gold standard in Bibles I agree.This Bible is the best study Bible I have yet to use It is the flowing and easy reading ESV version which is accurate and eloquent On top of being a superb version, it contains wonderful study notes, articles, and commentary that make it not only a Bible, but a study tool My favorite part is that this study Bible highlights the Word of God rather than any man s opinion as the contributor [...]
The English Standard Version has become a favorite just edging out the NIV Study Bible and with the notes and references that come with this Bible, I am very happy to never finish reading this wonderful book that some may say describes the history of the failure of each human being but in reality is about THE faithful, loving, holy, righteous, sovereign, creator, sacrificial, powerful, empathetic God of the universe There is betrayal, intrigue, romance, battles, mighty deeds, theology, philosoph [...]
The Bible is not really a book one can review when you read and study the Word of God, it reviews you I have read through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation many times, in numerous translations, and find that it continues to have transformative power I have been using the English Standard Version now consistently for about three years, and overall find it to be readable and clear I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a reliable modern English translation.I found the study notes to be use [...]
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 2 Timothy 3 16 ESV For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit 2 Peter 1 21 ESV Think of it Marvel at this Stand in awe of this The God who keeps watch over the nations, like some people keep watch over cattle or stock markets or construction sites this God still speaks in the twenty first [...]
I don t think that any christian should be without a study bible The notes on this one are clear and comprehensive, and I have been getting so much out of my devotions with the insights that they provide for each passage I have owned both an NIV and ESV bible, and though both are excellent translations, I have to say that I prefer the NIV s style of translating The ESV is a word for word translation compared to the NIV, which translates by the idea of the passage , and because of that, the pass [...]
This is a review of the study part of this edition there is no need to review the inerrant scriptures The strength of this text is that the notes are generally clear and concise However, due to that they sometimes leave me wanting for greater depth, breadth, or both I have also had instances where I have a question on verses that are not covered by the commentary at all Overall, a well done work and vigorously Reformed, but I do prefer the ESV Study Bible for its in depth commentary most of the [...]
Very fine study Bible with notes and articles from the Reformed tradition The ESV version is also an excellent version with many Reformed theologians making up the ESV staff The notes, and articles, are constructed from than just a Reformed take on various topics, there is also much good insight to be had on many other issues calling for the fruit of solid exegetical study that all kinds of Christians can agree with, viz Arminian and reformed, for example The notes come from a thoroughly orthod [...]
I followed the Robert Murray M Cheyne reading plan this year, which means that I read through the Old Testament once and the New Testament twice Every time I read the Bible I get something new out of it It is truly the best book I ve ever read It is a delight to be teaching it to the women in my Precept study and the teenage girls in our Young Twigs group Taste and see that the Lord is good
The English Standard Version of the Bible has been, by far, my favorite version since it came on the scene somewhere around 2000 I find it to be easy to read, and very accurate as far as I can tell, seeing that I know nothing about Greek and Hebrew This particular study Bible incorporates notes edited by R.C Sproul, a very brilliant Bible scholar and founder of Ligonier Ministries As the title would suggest, the notes in this Bible hold fast to the doctrines of grace.
The Reformation Study Bible ESV is the way to go I have many translations of the Bible but I have chosen to study through this one because it gives a word for word translation from the original Greek text In addition, the study notes give a solid Bible founation of understanding scripture as a whole The editors stands firm on its literal meaning of text Would recommend it to all students of the Bible.
English Standard Version is an Excellent essentially literal translation that seeks as far as possible to capture the precise wording of the original text and the personal style of each Bible writer The Theological Notes by R C Sproul, Drs Ph.D are Superb I use Prof Horner s Bible Reading System with this Bible to continually read GOD s word daily.facebook groupp sid
Currently reading I find this version of the Bible very easy to follow with numerous cross references and insights to help along the way An amazing amount of time and effort went into this work of that I have no doubt Recommended to all those who have a love for God s word Definitely a Pilgrim s needed friend.
What can I say It is the Bible, God s Holy Word This particular copy that I have is the Daily Reading Bible, Through the Bible in a Year True I am picking it up midway through the year, but it has the dates marked clearly and there are plenty of options It does not have all the options my study Bible has, but I bought this one for the one year plan and it was on sale at a good price.
