The anticipated ESV Study Bible is due out in October of 2008. I recently moved from the NIV to the ESV about 4 years ago due to it’s readability and literal accuracy. For information on the translation details you can click here. I am excited for the release of this new project. For more check out the new ESV study Bible website by clicking here. Below are some endorsements.
The ESV is a dream come true for me. The rightful heir to a great line of historic translations, it provides the continuity and modern accuracy I longed for. Now the scope and theological faithfulness of the ESV Study Bible study notes is breathtaking. Oh how precious is the written Word of God.
The ESV Study Bible is the most important resource that has been given to the emerging generation of Bible students and teachers. The ESV Study Bible is the best. Period.

C. J. Mahaney:
I can’t imagine a greater gift to the body of Christ than the ESV Study Bible. It is a potent combination indeed: the reliability and readability of the ESV translation, supplemented by the best of modern and faithful scholarship, packaged in an accessible and attractive format. A Christian could make no wiser investment for himself, a pastor could recommend no better resource for his congregation.
