The ESV is the Bible version that we normally use in our church for teaching, preaching, Scripture Reading, and memorization. I personally use and recommend the ESV because of its beauty, accuracy, readability, and the translators commitment to “an essentially literal” approach to translation (no translation is entirely literal expect for an interlinear. If it were, it would be an extremely awkward read. The NASB likely comes closest to a woodenly literal translation in English).
I am very impressed with the quality of the forthcoming ESV Study Bible, not to mention the number and caliber of the contributors. In addition to the hard copy of the Bible, you will also have an electronic version to use. If you pre-order this study Bible by June 15, you will receive a 33% discount. Check it out here.
