ESV Global Study Bible Giveaway

I've been using the ESV Bible as my Bible of choice for over five years now and thoroughly enjoy it and believe it to be one of the better translations available. I have no problem with someone preferring a different translation, although I have some old friends who are of the KJV only camp. Crossway has recently released their ESV Global Study Bible and I want to give one of them away today.

THE BIBLE

The ESV Global Study Bible is a one-volume study resource for globally minded Christians everywhere. It has been designed from beginning to end to be highly accessible and value priced for distribution on a global scale.

The Global Study Bible features a fresh design, with a wide range of new features. Each book begins with an introduction, followed by a unique, insightful description of the global message of the book. Likewise, a set of new articles by global Christian leaders apply the Bible to global issues, such as the role of government, the nature of the church, world religions, social ethics, and missions and evangelism.

Each print copy comes with free access to the online Global Study Bible, available anywhere worldwide with an Internet connection.

The Global Study Bible’s notes and maps were adapted from the best-selling ESV Study Bible and contain a wealth of information about the biblical text, history, and geography. With overviews of each Bible book, special facts, and character profiles, the Global Study Bible is an outstanding resource for Christians everywhere who seek to know and understand the truth of the Bible and its global meaning.

Buy One, Give One

For every copy of this Global Study Bible purchased, Crossway distributes a free digital copy to a Christian in need of one somewhere in the world. This is a unique global strategy so that when a copy is purchased, it in small way is helping to "equip the Global Church through God's Word."

THE GIVEAWAY

To Enter: Leave a comment below telling me: 1) What is your preferred version of the Bible and why. Or 2) You must share this post either on Facebook or Twitter. 

The giveaway ends on Sunday night at 11 pm EST. The winner will be announced on Monday.

  1. My preferred bible for regular reading is the NLT or New Living Translation due to its ease of reading. My study bible of choice is currently the NKJV because it is a dynamic equivalent and its the translation used in my John MacAurther study bible.

  2. I prefer the ESV because it's the translation that is easiest for me to read. I've found myself distracted by other translations when I'm unable to figure out *what* was written, let alone what it means :) I also enjoy the study guides in the ESV Study Bibles.

  5. Hopefully, the third time (and a different browser) will be the charm. My comments disappeared before.

    I actually use the ESV as well. Our pastors also use it. I find it easy to read and study, and it is a very accurate translation.

  16. I prefer the new american standard version as I have heard many pastors (including Charles Stanley) say it is the most literal translation. I have no experience with the ESV but would love to have this one!

  18. Honestly, I don't have a preference because I haven't read the bible yet. I've recently started attending church after being away since I was a child. I'm looking for a bible right now to read, but have no clue which one to get as there are a ton to choose from! :)

  25. I found your website through your sister's FB page. First, prays for your work as a missionary. What a blessing- to be about the Father's business and spreading his love!

    I cannot say I have a "preferred" bible translation, at the moment. I teach mostly from the NASB, but find favorite passages in the NIV and even the NABRE. It's a great 'coincidence' that tonight was the first night I have read passages from the ESV, then I found your giveaway. The global addition sounds like a wonderful resource, full of fantastic information. Thank you for the opportunity to share your post on my FB page.

    Blessings and prayers in your continued adventures!

  26. I am currently using the NET(new English Translation) but I'm am looking for a good ESV for studying with my 7 year old.

    ReplyDelete
  27. We have several different versions of the Bible in our home. We like to read and compare them all. :) I will share this on FB as well! :D

  28. I've always used NASB because I understand it was done by Wycliff translators and it's a great word for word translation. I love their mission to reach all language groups with a Bible in their "heart language". I also like NIV for it's thought for thought translation. Would love to try this since so many seem to like it.

  29. I read the ESV the most, but I am always reading multiple versions and looking at the Hebrew/Greek where possible. I'll tweet your post. @memusings

  30. My preferred version is the NKJV because it is close to the KJV, which I was raised on, but much more readable. However, ESV is my second favorite and the version my husband uses.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I prefer the NIV version. I find it the easiest to read and understand! I will share on Facebook.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have a parallel NASB/Amplified. I *love* the Amplified because it seems to give me a more informed explanation of the passages, alternate word meanings, etc.... without me having to look at footnotes. It's allowed me to see things differently at times that i might otherwise have missed.

  33. I prefer the NKJV as it is closest to the KJV but am open to reading most versions.

  37. I have been using the NIV since I discovered it in college. However, I do not like the new NIV translation so I have been using the ESV on my Kindle.

  38. I use the KJV, but have done some comparing of translations in my own Bible study. I've heard good things about the NKJV and the ESV. I'd love a copy of the ESV for using in my personal study.
