My New ESV Study Bible Arrived -- Looks Like Everything We Hoped For!

The mailman just delivered my new ESV Study Bible, and so I spent much of my lunch break looking through it.  Oh, I'll have a few minor bones to pick with some of the study notes (i.e., Schreiner on Romans 2:6-11, although the note on Romans 7:14-25 is very good), but any study Bible which reproduces the Vos "two-age" model chart as the main feature of New Testament eschatology (p. 1804) can't be all bad!  There's even a chart including the "covenant futurist" view of Daniel 9:27 (p. 1608).

My initial sense is that the ESV Study Bible certainly meets, if not exceeds, some very high expectations.  The folks at Crossway are to be commended.

The binding looks pretty solid, but then so did the binding of my green ESV hardback (Classic Reference Edition) which didn't hold up at all.  Nothing a little duct-tape couldn't fix, however.

In any case, I'm thrilled.  The on-line version is truly amazing!  So, go get one!

I've had mine since Thursday afternoon. Best money I've spent in a long time.

My copy arrived last week. I too am thrilled and impressed! My copy had about 50 pages missing near the end, so I had to send it back for a replacement. I am not quite sure how I was able to discover these missing pages so quickly out of a total of 2750. The tiny font for the notes is hard on my middle-aged eyes. I would wait for a large-print edition, but that would probably be too heavy for an old guy like me to lift. Regardless, I am excited to have such a fine Bible study tool.

I received mine last week, too! I'm highly recommending it to friends and family members. I'm just beginning to scratch the surface - love all the maps.

In addition to a decent note on Dan. 9:27, did they sort out the punctuation in 9:25?

I guess I am confused - what is faulty with the notes from Rom 2:6-11? I'm not trying to argue... I honestly don't know why you would have a bone to pick regarding those notes.

Iam still using the Reformation Study Bible NKJV that Ligonier put out years ago. What is different as far as the ESV study Bible goes?

This is definitely on my wishlist. I would purchase one if I was financially able, but for now I have to drool over the one that my roommate just received in the mail (which happened to have small blue lines running through 1 and 2 Kings, but that is neither here nor there).
