Item description for ESV Thinline Bible, Genuine Leather, Burgundy, Red Letter by Christin Ditchfield, Henry M. Morris, Frank E. Peretti, Rachel M. Tamilio, Crossway Bibles & Good News Publishers...

I've seen the looks in some of your eyes. You have been wounded, hurt, and, worst of all, disappointed. Perhaps someone betrayed your trust, mismanaged your belongings, or said things that stabbed like daggers in your already fragile heart. It wasn't fair. It was not right. It wasn't called for.

Some of you have held the hands of loved ones as they passed from this world of time and space into eternity. You were with them as they suffered, you heard them gasp for their final breath. Perhaps someone's carelessness on the road put them there. It wasn't fair. It's not right. It was too early, you say as you shake your fists toward the sky wondering why.

Why would a loving God do this? If He's really there, couldn't He stop the madness we experience in the course of this life?

Perhaps your last visit to the doctor brought devastating news. "Procedures and options" were laid out before you like a menu as you tried to cope with all that was said moments ago about your condition. Unwelcome statistics and visions of treatment and suffering dance across your mind like flames in a fire. Questions pile up in innumerable amounts, and again you wonder . . .

Why would a loving God do this? If He's really there, couldn't He stop the madness we experience in the course of this life?

Have you had these questions burning in your heart? You are not alone, and God does not condemn questions. God has long been accused of "not doing enough." Even when He was here in the flesh, the people of the day expected Jesus to overthrow the Roman government and do away with the horrible oppression and suffering of the Jewish nation. He didn't, so many did not believe and were voting with the same crowd that crucified Him in the end. They could not understand that His mission was to invite them into the Kingdom of God, which is not of this world.

To those of you who have been wounded and hurt, disappointed by someone's unfaithfulness or dishonesty, please know that the Lord is not like that. God is who He says He is( Hebrews 13:8). He doesn't change with the wind or have mood swings. He loves you. He desires your fellowship even more than you long to be truly loved (Revelation 3:20, 2 Corinthians 6:16, Galatians 4:6).

To others of you who are facing death or illness of any kind, God cares. He looks at you with compassion. He wants to comfort your spirit and soothe your aching heart. He really does. Our time on earth is very limited, but His heart yearns for you to know Him in it. Do you?

To yet others of you who perhaps have been in churches where you were condemned for your weakness, shunned for making poor choices--God has a place in His heart for you. "For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly" (Romans 5:6). The greatest act of love the world has ever known was accomplished with you in mind.

The pain and weakness we experience in this life reveal to us our need for grace. In that realization, we only need to turn to Him, confess our sin before Him, and ask Him to come into our lives (1 John 1:9, Ephesians 2:8-9). As a child of God, you will never be turned away (John 10:28). You will never be excommunicated, never left alone (Hebrews 13:5). And when this life is over, you will be welcomed into Heaven, a place without tears, death, or pain (Revelation 21:4).

God aches for you, and He longs to be your Comforter. Please don't give up on Him. After all, He'll never give up on you!

Reviews - What do customers think about ESV Thinline Bible, Genuine Leather, Burgundy, Red Letter?

A word on The Word.  Aug 4, 2008
I have spent the first year of my Christian life, reading from the New International version (NIV) of the Holy Bible. I thank God for such an easy to read, well organized version. However, to you who are reading this, I sincerely suggest the English Standard Version (ESV). A far more literal translation with a high degree of readability; not to mention a great subtext including helpful Hebrew word translations.

The book itself is excellently bound and durable. I love how it remains open to the page I'm reading out of. Especially when teaching out of it. For you would-be preachers, this is a great bible to wave in the air (in love)! It's light and travel-ready. Enjoy His Scripture! Jesus be praised!
ESV Thinline Bible, Genuine Leather, Black, Red Letter Text (Leather Bound)  Jul 25, 2007
I have to say, I am impressed. After having read many reviews of Crossway Bibles on here, particularly the leather bound ones, I was skeptical about purchasing this. Apparently Crossway typically falls short of good binding expectations. However, I needed an ESV translation and wanted a leather bound version, so I thought I would try this.

Surprisingly, I was not let down. The leather cover is hard and not as comfortable to hold as a Cambridge Bible. But it still bends just the same as one and isn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. The pages are nice but need some cracking in like many Bibles in the lower price range do. The pages do not seem to be sewn, and sound like they are glued. The ribbon to mark the pages is standard, and extends past the bottom of the page by about two inches. The word itself is great. No chapter introductions, no cross reference system, and the simplest of footnotes. This is a pure ESV edition. The font is of a standard size and easy to read with Christ's words in red. I've heard complaints of the pages being thin with lots of bleed-through which effect the reading, and although that is true, most of the time I find it has little effect on the reading.

The translation itself is great. I used to use NIV primarily (KJV for selected chapters or verses), but as my church began using ESV in service, I must say I think I will be switching to this as my primary Bible in contemporary English, replacing NIV. Most notable are the translations of "hell", which in many places has been fixed to reflect it's original and true meaning (Sheol in Hebrew or hades in Greek for the dead or the grave, commonly found in the OT; and the NT translation for Gehenna still says hell, but has a footnote saying it's Gehenna [The hell in Peter has a footnote for its proper translation, Tartarus, a place for fallen angels waiting for judgment day]). Most footnotes are simply about specific words in Hebrew or Greek, so they are very valuable, yet still simple (not clutter). Overall it helps one to understand the true meaning of the Word by its accuracy.

The overall quality is decent for the price. Based on reviews of ESV translations, I'd say this is your best bet for a simple leather bound version unless you're looking to spend money on one of the calfskin Bibles, which I've heard great things about. Still though, I'm waiting for a very nice edition of the ESV to come out, but this will do fine in the meantime. Thanks for reading, I hope it's been helpful.
A great bible  May 30, 2007
I was looking for a text-only bible in ESV that was compact but still readable, and genuine leather. This is it. Great price. Other reviews have said the print "bleeds" through, but none that I observed. Ordering couldn't have been easier and I got it before I expected.
Wonderful Translation...  Dec 20, 2006
but the bonded leather edition of the thinline version is of a "Oh, come on Crossway!" type quality. It seems nothing more than an plastic type of rubber. The genuine leather binding is good. And I've recently purchased the large print version. One online Christian book seller states that the ESV large print bible is their most popular bible in sales.

Don't miss this translation!
Excellent Translation, Poor Leather  May 21, 2004
In our day of mass marketing and mass production, Crossway Books would do well to learn the lessons of Thomas Nelson. Nelson once published excellent Bibles with great leather texture, binding, and onion skin paper. However, Nelson has abandoned that now and makes cheap, mass production Bibles simply because people buy them and it costs nothing for Nelson to make them.

For me this is the case with this edition from Crossway. The translation is excellent and I rank it up there with the NASB and the NKJV. But the genuine leather and the entire Bible itself apart from the text is not very good. I would love to see Crossway come out with a quality genuine leather, center-cross references, verse formatted, and thumb-indexed. I believe in time they will.
