Holy Bible An e-book edition of the highly accurate English Standard Version Bible.
The English Standard Version is a new and highly accurate translation of the Bible from the original sources. It sits in the classic stream of word-for-word Bible translations, using the Revised Standard Version as a base, but incorporates all the most recent advances in modern language use. It combines the utmost accuracy with readability and literary beauty.
Dr J.I. Packer headed the editorial team which drew on a wide spread of scholarship from across the evangelical spectrum, to create the ultimate combination of readability and accuracy, making the ESV ideal for personal and academic study, for use in church and for memorization.
This new Compact typesetting includes a short concordance to aid study.
‘This is a fine, fresh and faithful translation, combining both elegance and accuracy to bring us a version of the bible that is anything but standard. The ESV brings us a text that is both readable yet scholarly. It is quite simply the best version we have today – clear, simple and illuminating‘
MARTYN PERCY, Principal of Ripon College Cuddesdon
At last a translation that majors on accuracy, combined with a modern, fluent style. I am confident that in time the ESV will become the standard translation for the English-speaking world.’
