Publisher's Summary

Would you believe it took nearly 500 years to translate the ESV (English Standard Version) Bible? That's because the ESV builds on the great translations of the past - including William Tyndale's New Testament of 1526 and the King James Version (KJV) of 1611. But the ESV Bible also builds on the best Christian scholarship of the last 100 years. The result is a fresh and compelling Bible translation, with a timeless quality, that's trustworthy and true. That's why the ESV "sounds like" the Bible - with the kind of beauty, clarity, and dignity that we love to hear and read. That's also why the ESV retains the Bible's rich imagery and theological words - words like grace and justification and salvation - that are essential to our faith.
The result is a Bible that conveys the timeless quality of God's Word and that remains trustworthy and true to the original words breathed out by God. As Moses wrote more than 3,000 years ago, the words of God are "your very life, and by this word you shall live." (Deuteronomy 32:47).

Be warned... not divided well

Would you try another book written by Crossway or narrated by David Heath?

The book is great (it's the bible) and David Heath does well.

Any additional comments?

Problem is that this 75 hour book is not divided by the books of the bible or its chapters... it's just randomly spliced. BAD and hard to use!!

Please divide into books and chapters!!!

Please divide into books and chapters. It makes it difficult to know where you are in the bible unless you recognise the scripture. Poor.
