'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 'Meticulous care and passionate research make the ESV a crisp, accurate, and valuable translation.' MAX LUCADO, Minister, Oak Hills Church of Christ 'The ESV satisfies the preaching, memorizing, studying and reading needs of our church, from children to adults.' JOHN PIPER, Pastor for Preaching and Vision, Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, Minnesota
First published in 2001, The ESV Bible carries forward the trusted legacy of the Bible in English - the legacy established first in the Tyndale New Testament (1526) and the KJV Bible (1611). With this legacy as the foundation, the ESV reflects the beauty and majesty of the original languages, first captured centuries ago by these early Bible translations. But the ESV also provides the most recent evangelical Christian Bible scholarship and enduring readability for today. The ESV translation process itself was based on the trusted principles of essentially literal translation - combining word-for-word accuracy with readability and literary excellence.
