Description

The highly-accurate English Standard Version translation with centre column cross-references and concordance. With Dr JI Packer heading up the translation team, the ESV draws on the classic stream of word-for-word Bible translations.
The English Standard Version is a completely new translation based on the Revised Standard Version, so that wherever possible it ties in with the traditional and literary forms of words revered down the ages. The translation work has been done by an international team of evangelical scholars concerned only to make it as accurate as possible.
So at the same time, its language is entirely up to date and all the latest advances in scholarly thinking have been incorporated. This Bible is essential for anyone who cares about accuracy of translation but doesn't want to compromise on readability.
With centre column cross-references as well as a concordance, this first edition of the new English Standard Version Bible is ideal for serious study or devotional reading.
