Recently, I have been reading the ESV online exhaustively as I now regard it as 1 of my primary versions along with the 1995 updated edition of the New American Standard Bible. So I decided to buy this Bible as a compact edition to my full-size Bible. I hope to soon purchase the ESV New Inductive Study Bible as currently using the NASB edition & also the Kindle version of the ESV Study Bible.
Firstly, I noticed the supple feeling from the TruTone binding and also the fact that it is Smyth Sewn also. Another big favourite of mine is that it is it reads in paragraph - single column - format, which makes it easier for me to delve into properly. It is the perfect size to carry around with me as my NASB International Inductive Study Bible is heavier to carry around but that is my everyday full-size Bible.
Well done Crossway on providing such a great Bible, perfect fir lugging about

This Bible is the perfect size for everyday reading and travel. The font is large enough to see without strain, and the book headings are informative, but brief. The paragraph style is perfect, just like reading a novel, and the ESV translation is the best out there in my opinion. The Tru-tone is the softest of any Tru-tone cover I've ever seen, and for the money you cannot get a better look Bible, or a more durable one.

The Bible was just what I needed. We use this ESV. for our church services and for our Bible studies. The size was just right to carry.

I like it. TruTone has a nice smooth feel. Good portable size, yet I read it at home as well. The cross references being in the middle are not quite as easy as in middle, but still good. i like the paragraph style text (as opposed to 2-column format). text is small, but readable (then again, i think i still have 20/20 vision). would be easier to read if a bit larger type.all in all, I like it.
