>ESV Study Bible release

>The English Standard Version (ESV) is my preferred translation. The ESV Study Bible is being released today. The concern with study Bibles is when people spend more time reading the notes than Scripture, but good helps and maps do improve understanding. This looks like it will contain some useful material.

The general editor is Wayne Grudem, a superb scholar. J.I. Packer is the theological editor.

It will likely have a Calvinist flavour and is unlikely to be conservative enough in some areas such as chronology, but unless I write my own study Bible… and then I wouldn’t need it.

    I have to agree with you in your preference and I have now got the ESV on my Palm and I love it (the translation). It reads so well, effortlessly (the ESV that is not the Palm). I will have to go and have a look at the Study Bible Edition.
