Item description for The Psalms: English Standard Version by Good News...
The book of Psalms contains the songs and prayers of Israel that are familiar and loved by all. These expressions of praise, faith, sorrow, and frustration cover the full range of human emotions. Whether we are excited about the majesty of God or weighed down by the pain of grief, the psalms give us words to express ourselves to the Lord.
This compact format of the Psalms is perfect for carrying around for those times when we need these God-inspired verses at our fingertips. As an "essentially literal" translation, the ESV is unsurpassed in both accuracy and readability. Written in language that is beautiful, clear, and trustworthy, the ESV sets a new standard--and is truly a Bible for all of life.
Outline Review Christians 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

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.
