Reviews - What do customers think about ESV Wide Margin Reference Bible-Tan/Brown TruTone?
Great size for a wide margin Jan 12, 2008
Regarding the physical aspects of this wide margin edition, It is a very handy size...atleast for a wide margin (having the feel of a classic reference bible). Though the covers are not a nice goatskin or calfskin they are nice and I recommend the trutone black over the genuine as I noticed more flexibility with the trutone.
I personally disagree that all wide margins should be single column. Though I like paragraphed single column for the readability, they often create a larger bible while the double column allow for a trimmer size. When taking notes in a double column wide margin such as this one I recommend adding a note above the note stating chapter and verse like a regular study bible does. For Example in john 1 write:
1:1 - "word" = logos in greek.
wide margin-double column? Dec 26, 2007
I recently recieved my wide margins edition of the ESV. Unfortunatley, it has double columns which makes it impossible to take effective notes on the inside column, which is the only reason people buy wide margin versions in the first place.
Otherwise, it is a good bible, good translation. I like the cover and will would preaching from it if it was single column.
Wide Margin Bibles Should Be Single Columned! May 30, 2007
I don't know what Crossway was thinking when they published this wide margin Bible with double column print! Now, don't get me wrong, I really like the ESV translation. It is quite faithful to the Hebrew and Greek without some of the cumbersome translation problems (like the NASB). Though it is a quite literal translation that follows the RSV tradition, it is still easy enough to read for the layperson. However, Crossway made a major mistake with this particular Bible print by making it a wide margin AND double column. Wide margin Bibles should only have a single column for practicality and note-making friendliness. I give this Bible edition only two stars. The binding and paper quality is pretty good, but Crossway should have made this edition single-column print. If you want a nice and reader friendly wide margin Bible, purchase the one published by Zondervan instead (they only have the NASB and NIV versions so far).
