A pocket size paperback edition of the highly accurate English Standard Version Bible, now with new, clearer typesetting.

Packer headed the editorial team which drew on a wide spread of scholarship from across the evangelical spectrum, to create the ultimate combination of readability and accuracy, making the ESV ideal for personal and academic study, for use in church and for memorization. This new Compact typesetting has a larger, clearer typeface and includes a short concordance to aid study.

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.
