Reviews - What do customers think about ESV Classic Reference Trutone Bible-Brown/Cordovan?
Not bad, but could be better Dec 13, 2007
English Standard Version (ESV, a revision of RSV) is a fine translation. And my review here is not about the version, but the quality of the physical Bible itself. Overall, it is good, but not great. 1. While it is not leather, it is a fine imitation leather (TruTone). It is soft and flexible. As for its durability, imitation leathers fall in somewhere between genuine leather and hardcover. But it also depends on the user. 2. It is NOT Smyth Sewn binding (stitched). Pages are glued to the spine. This is one of the weakness of the Bible. Comparable Ultrathin Reference Bible-NASB is Smyth Sewn. 3. While the font is readable, the darkness of the font is not evenly printed. For example, the print in page 1202 (Philemon) is darker than the print in page 1203 (Hebrews). And there are more pages with this minor problem. Now, it is possible that only my copy has this anomaly, but I doubt it.
Overall it is a good Bible but the quality could be better.
Great translation, great package. Oct 24, 2007
I was given an original hardbound copy of the ESV Bible several years ago and my wife and I started reading through it together. We had both grown up with King James versions and had started using the Darby version a lot because of the accuracy with which it was translated. We were quickly won over by the ESV for its tremendous readability while maintaining an accuracy approaching the Darby (which is very cumbersome). I soon bought an Heirloom Reference Edition ESV for myself and my wife used the hardcopy until it literally fell apart.
I bought this beautiful TruTone version as a gift for my wife after a lot of research. It is compact without being tiny, has most of the reference material that the ESV is so strong on (it has a smaller concordance than my Heirloom version, but still substantial), and looked to be very attractive from the online photos. I was not disappointed when my wife opened her present. This is a very nice looking Bible. I'm sure an expert could, but I don't know that I could tell the cover from genuine leather. The colors are warm and rich.
My main concern was with the durability of this Bible, especially after our hardcopy (and hardcopies that a couple of friends owned) fell apart. This has not been an issue with this TruTone version at all. We have had this version for a good while and used it extensively and it has held up very well.
I have no reservations about recommending this ESV Classic Reference Bible.
Faithful and Attractive, Too May 23, 2007
The ESV has established itself as a faithful translation of Holy Scripture. Originally published in the Classic Reference edition with abundant, helpful cross-references and an extensive concordance, this edition is a welcomed addition the present line-up of bindings. The print is dark and clear, the binding attractive, and the size convenient. All-in-all, a great buy.
Great Edition to a Stellar Translation Nov 5, 2006
I have been reading the ESV for a little over a year. I have been impressed by all aspects of Crossway's publication: the cover design, the solid translation, the typeface. The ESV is a great new translastion in the formal tradition much like the NASB but without the wooden feel of the language.
This particular edition is perfect! The outside cover is gorgeous, the construction is solid, the reference notes are easy to follow, and the whole thing is slim and trim. All of that pales to the fact that you are reading God's word though. Pick up a copy of this Bible and fall in love all over again!!!!
Nice Bible Aug 24, 2006
Very, very nice attractive cover here. Beautiful colouring, and smooth to the touch. Binding glue-bound, but tight. Doesn't feel shoddy. I'm glad that Crossway is putting some of their nicely coloured covers into the larger sized Bibles. This has 9pt., print, which is on the small side, methinks. Book intros, centre-column references, nice concordance. I should complain?
