Item description for ESV Classic Reference Bible, Genuine Leather, Black, Red Letter Text, Thumb Indexed by Good News Publishing...
Outline ReviewChristians who have longed for a more readable literal Bible translation will find much to praise in the English Standard Version. The ESV's translation team of over 100 members has admirably attempted to preserve the stylistic variety of biblical authorship and ease of reading (at the eighth-grade level) despite the word-for-word translation, which historically has resulted in a choppier text flow. Bible study aficionados will appreciate the short introductions to each book, an extensive center column cross-reference system, full-color maps, and a 14,500-entry concordance. The hardcover edition includes the basic Bible frills: a presentation page, as well as marriage, birth, and death registries. --Cindy Crosby
The ESV Classic Reference Bible combines the ESV Bible text with an extensive system of more than 80,000 cross-references in the center column on each page. With its readable type, color maps, and a major concordance, the Classic Reference Bible is the first choice for personal Bible reading and in-depth study.
Now released in this durable TruTone cover with a Chestnut color and Eternity Design, the ESV Classic Reference Bible is also available in hardcover, bonded leather, genuine leather, premium calfskin, and other TruTone covers.

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!

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.
