English Standard Version Bible (ESV): Journaling Version
I've become such a big fan of the new English Standard Version (ESV) Bible! You'll notice that every link to scripture on this blog is to the ESV, and I've placed a search tool in the right-side column by which you may look up any scripture passage within the ESV.
The ESV Bible is a new, essentially literal Bible translation that combines word-for-word precision and accuracy with literary excellence, beauty, and readability. Its publisher, Crossway, has recently released the The Journaling Bible™, a unique format with wide margins and ruled lines designed for writing prayers, observations, sermon notes, and personal reflections. It even includes a one-year Bible reading plan.
But don't take my word for it, the ESV has been praised by such giants as Dr. R. C. Sproul, Pastors John Piper & Max Lucado, Dr. Ravi Zacharias, Jerry Bridges, Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr., Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer, Dr. John F. Walvoord, and Dr. Joseph M. Stowell.
