Reviews - What do customers think about The Holy Bible: English Standard Version (Classic Pew and Worship Edition, Black)?
ESV Pew Bible Regular Print Oct 21, 2008
This is a great Pew Bible. I bought this and the large print. Had I seen them beforehand I would have only bought the Large Print because it is so much nicer but also $5 more. I have the budget and space so the little bit more and the minor increase in size would not have mattered and I would have purchased all of the Pew Bibles that I purchased as the Large Print.
Not that great. Sep 18, 2008
I didn't buy this exact book, but I had one similar to it. Would not read again. Very violent, contains incest, beastiality, murder, horrible things that shouldn't be so available to everyone immediately. Promised salvation, so I thought a tv would be okay, but didn't deliver. As far as I can tell, this is just firelighter paper. Don't recommend.
Good Feb 25, 2008
I chose the cheap shipping and it was still here pretty quick, exactly what I ordered and in good shape.
Difficult Font but a Great Translation Apr 24, 2006
I bought this because it has the largest font of any of the ESV editions. However, I still find it difficult to read. It's not a particularly small font. And in any case I don't normally have trouble with small print. So I presume it's the style, rather than the size, of the font. I do hope they come up with something easier on the eyes. I'll stick with my old RSV till I get an ESV that's as easy to read.
Larger than other pew bibles Dec 4, 2005
This pew bible is larger than other pew bibles I have seen. This is likely due to the 10 font. It is more readable than portable. The book lays flat, has good line spacing, and has decent paper. The page format is easier on the eyes than is the hard cover classic reference. The pew bible will likely see the more use.
