These are Cambridge's first Bibles to use the dignified, expressive language of the English Standard Version (ESV). The English Standard Version is a literal translation from the original texts, firmly rooted in the tradition of Tyndale and King James but without archaic language. Published at the beginning of the twenty-first century, it is closest in style to the RSV and is well suited to public reading and memorization.
This is a center-column reference Bible presented in the Pitt Minion format: the Bible text is compact yet easy to read, while the Bibles themselves are slim and elegant.
There is a choice of both black- and red-letter styles, with full cross-references, a concordance, and color maps. All the Bibles are printed on high-quality India paper and Smyth-sewn, with a ribbon marker. Cover styles range from an attractive two-tone faux leather to beautiful goatskin leather.
