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.
In contrast to the ESV, some Bible versions have followed a "thought-for-thought" rather than "word-for-word" translation philosophy, emphasizing "dynamic equivalence" rather than the "essentially literal" meaning of the original. A "thought-for-thought" translation is of necessity more inclined to reflect the interpretive opinions of the translator and the influences of contemporary culture.
Every translation is at many points a trade-off between literal precision and readability, between "formal equivalence" in expression and "functional equivalence" in communication, and the ESV is no exception. Within this framework we have sought to be "as literal as possible" while maintaining clarity of expression and literary excellence.
Therefore, to the extent that plain English permits and the meaning in each case allows, we have sought to use the same English word for important recurring words in the original; and, as far as grammar and syntax allow, we have rendered Old Testament passages cited in the New in ways that show their correspondence. Thus in each of these areas, as well as 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. Indeed, with its emphasis on literary excellence, the ESV is equally suited for public reading and preaching, for private reading and reflection, for both academic and devotional study, and for Scripture memorization.

Reviews - What do customers think about ESV Large Print Holy Bible (Black)?
ESV Large Print Pew Bible = Excellent Oct 21, 2008
The ESV Large3 Print is AWESOME! I bought the regular print in addition to the large print and if I could do it all over I would only have bought the large print, it is very nice and then there would be no diferrence between the Pew Bible choices.
easy to read May 22, 2008
I find this printing of the ESV to be very easy to read. The font is not bold, but still crisp and highly legible. The text printed on the other side of the page only faintly shows through the paper and doesn't interfere with reading. A sample of the text is available on the publisher's website.

Very Nice Jan 8, 2008
This is a very nice bible and although the printing is some what larger it isn't as large as it could be or as large as I expected.
good without glasses Dec 21, 2007
We got this Bible to have the same translation as our children's bibles and so that we could read it after dinner without having to hunt up glasses for our 40 something eyes. We like this translation for family reading because it is readable and precise without resorting to crude or simplistic language like some translations for children do in their effort to be clear. We've ended up taking it to church too because it is so much easier than using reading glasses. Nice quality for regular use too.
