ESV Reader's Bible (Cloth Over Board, Timeless)

The ESV Reader’s Bible was created for those who want to read the books of Scripture precisely as they were originally written. Verse numbers, section headings, and translation footnotes are helpful navigational and interpretive tools, but they are also relatively recent conventions. In the Reader’s Bible they have been removed from the Bible text, and the result is a new kind of Bible-reading experience in a volume that presents Scripture as one extended storyline.

On the top of each page a verse range is included for navigation. Other features include a single-column text setting, readable type, and a book-like format. The Reader’s Bible is a simple but elegant edition, and is perfect for devotional reading or extended Bible reading that focuses on the overarching narrative of the Bible.

Features:

  • Size: 5.25” x 7.75”
  • 9-point Lexicon type
  • 1,840 pages
  • Black letter text
  • Single-column, paragraph format
  • No verse numbers or footnotes
  • Illustrated maps
  • Two ribbon markers
  • Smyth-sewn binding
  • Packaging: clamshell box (TruTone), permanent slipcase (cloth over board)

The Reformation Study Bible: English Standard Version Imitation Leather (Tan) w/Maps
During the Reformation, a renewed interest in Scripture brought great light to the church and the world. In The Reformation Study Bible, general editor R. C. Sproul aims to present the light of the Reformation anew by combining an accessible translation with study notes that stand firmly in the theological tradition of the Reformation.

No other study Bible gives the reader more assistance in understanding the great doctrines and themes of the Christian faith as found in the Scriptures. Extensive notes have been researched and written by a team of more than fifty scholars, including J. I. Packer, James Boice, and Wayne Grudem.

All Christians that want to dig deeper in their study of Scripture will appreciate the bible’s many features, including section introductions, book introductions and outlines, comments on the biblical text, theological notes, charts, in-text maps, and cross-references.

The first study bible based on the English Standard Version, The Reformation Study Bible is the perfect choice for men and women that want to study God’s word in a language they can understand.
