Now the scope and theological faithfulness of the ESV Study Bible study notes is breathtaking. Oh how precious is the written Word of God." - John Piper, Pastor, Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, MN

"The definitive clarity and beauty of the ESV Study Bible is extraordinary. In a world where words are distorted to mean anything, it is wonderful to have complete confidence in the reliability and truth of the Bible-so clearly and persuasively demonstrated by this world-class team of Bible scholars and teachers.

"Outstanding! The ESV Study Bible is a treasure-a beautiful volume, filled with a wealth of resources. It will be just as useful for the seminarian and long-time pastor as it will be accessible to the brand-new Christian." - R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY

"I was privileged to act as General Editor of the English Standard Version, and now that I look back on what we did in producing that version, I find myself suspecting very strongly that this was the most important thing that I have ever done for the Kingdom, and that the product of our labors is perhaps the biggest milestone in Bible translation in certainly the last half century at least, and perhaps more. And now, as Theological Editor of the ESV Study Bible, I believe that the work we have done together on this project has set an altogether new standard in study Bibles." - J. I. Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, Canada

I'm confident that it will be an instant and reliable help to growing Christians; high school, college, and seminary students; busy pastors; and Bible teachers. In short, the ESV Study Bible is an edifying, state-of-the-art resource that I highly recommend and will use with joy!" - Ligon Duncan, Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson,

"I believe the ESV Study Bible is the world's best single-volume resource for reading, studying, and teaching the Bible. Produced by a team of leading evangelical scholars, the ESV Study Bible provides a wealth of theological, historical, grammatical, and archaeological information in the articles, book introductions, and verse-by-verse notes. Exceptional attention has also been given to producing new maps, charts, and visual illustrations of places in the Bible. The visual impact is stunning-with beautiful images that will draw readers back to the study Bible again and again, giving them a deeper understanding of the sites and settings of the Bible." - Philip Ryken, Senior Minister, Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, PA
