Just released at the Westminster Bookstore is new ESV Study Bible! I can’t tell you how badly I’ve wanted this Bible to be released and for how long. The contributors are excellent, the articles are unique, and the illustrations and diagrams are in color, and done in painstaking detail.

According to the Westminster Bookstore: “We are offering all of the faux-leather and actual leather Study Bibles at 40% off, and the hardcover edition at 43% off. With our new $3 economy shipping for the hardcover, that makes the total price of any of these editions with shipping the best of any reputable seller on the web.

Normally I’m not incredibly big on study Bibles, and the only one that I enjoy and consider the best on the market is the NIV Spirit of the Reformation Study Bible. I became intimately familiar with this study Bible while in seminary, when for one class, we were required to read much of the study notes. Being this close to the text caused me to develop a great admiration for SRSB. After looking through the contributor list for the ESVSB and the sample notes and diagrams posted online, I reluctantly admit that this may be the new standard!

This treasure comes in a number of different editions:

Lastly, here’s just a sample of the free articles from the ESVSB that Crossway’s posted online.

City Plan of Rome

The Introduction to the Book of Romans contains a city plan of ancient Rome, which we have posted online, along with an excerpt of some of the information on Rome found in that introduction. Other city plans that you’ll find in the ESVSB include the cities of Ur, Nineveh (see p. 9 of the Jonah PDF), Babylon, Jericho, Corinth, Ephesus, and Philippi.

  1. Mania is right! I’ve been waiting for over a year for this bible. I was able to review a copy yesterday and I thoroughly enjoy it! I got the Tru-Tone Natural Brown and I must say, it’s a beautiful Bible! I’ve used the ESV Reformation Bible since it came out. This new ESV Study Bible is different enough to make a good companion.

    The bookstore I work for, Scripture Truth Book Co. will have the ESV Study Bible available starting tomorrow, Oct. 15th for the following prices:

    ESV Study Hardcover- $32.99
    ESV Study Tru Tone Brown- $52.49
    ESV Study Gen Black- $62.99

    Our shipping rates are very reasonable. No more than $4-6 dollars, depending upon the price.
