I bought these bibles to use with several Hispanic families that recently started to attend worship with us. They seem to appreciate having the two languages side by side. One of the men is older and speaks almost no English. I think he will use this to help him learn both more about Our Lord and also the English language. Glad for that reason I did not get the King James Translation!

In 2007, Crossways Publishing published a bi-lingual ESV-RVR bible with 9.5 point type and good verse-by-verse parallel alignment between the Spanish and English text. Since then, the ESV has been updated slightly. Therefore, Crossways has now published this update in hardback and paperback versions. The text size is slightly smaller (8 point type), but keeps the verse-by-verse parallelism so one can follow the text easily in two languages, and sells is at a lower price than the original. Since these are the only Spanish bilingual bibles currently available with the ESV translation, if your eyesight can read the smaller text, this may be what you are looking for......
