Item description for ESV Classic Reference Bible, Hardcover, Black Letter Text by Crossway Bibles...
Overview The ESV is an "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. As such, its emphasis is on "word-for-word" correspondence, at the same time taking into account differences of grammar, syntax, and idiom between current literary English and the original languages. Thus it seeks to be transparent to the original text, letting the reader see as directly as possible the structure and meaning of the original. Throughout the Bible as a whole, we have sought to capture the echoes and overtones of meaning that are so abundantly present in the original texts. As an essentially literal translation, then, the ESV seeks to carry over every possible nuance of meaning in the original words of Scripture into our own language. As such, it is ideally suited for in-depth study of the Bible. (FROM THE CROSSWAY BOOKS WEBSITE)

Accurate and Attractive Oct 5, 2008
The ESV seems to be a very accurate translation. It does not always read like contemporary English, but sometimes that's an advantage because it makes one stop and think about what one is reading. I really appreciate the way Crossway has some beautiful covers for these Bibles. I'd gotten tired of black and burgundy!
ESV BIBLE Sep 22, 2008
I love the little Bible and its color. The print is very small so wouldn't advise for the elderly, but is wonderful to fit in the purse or pocket. Very nice quality.
