There’s been a lot of buzz about the upcoming ESV Study Bible. Among its features:
- The full Bible text in the English Standard Version.
- 2,752 pages
- 20,000 Bible notes
- 80,000 cross references
- 200+ full-color maps
- 200+ charts
- 40+ new illustrations including archaeological recontructions/diagrams of the Jerusalem temples, the Tabernacle, the city of Jerusalem through time, and more.
Anyone who purchases the print version will receive free access to the Online Edition, which includes all of the above features (in digital format, interactive links between notes/references/maps/etc.) along with some additional resources.
The print version comes in your choice of hardback, bonded or genuine leather. For some extra $$ you can have your new text in new calfskin. (“Premium Calfskin” according to the site.)
It’s publication date is October 15th, but you will save 25% if you order by Friday, August 15th.
Visit the Official Site for all the juicy details. You can also check out this nice 5-minute promo video.
Update: You can still save 20% off the cover price if you order by September 15th. This Bible is less expensive than I thought it would be, even without the discount. It is designed and priced for a wide market, not just preachers and the like.
