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
'At every level of congregational and individual Christian life,
an accurate, consistent, and readable Bible translation is
essential. The ESV is all those things'
- William Taylor, St Helen's Bishopsgate
'Dependability. That's the first word that comes to mind when I
think of the ESV. Reassuring. That's the first word that comes to
my mind when I think of the new Anglicised version! Confidence.
That's what every Christian can have when they use this
- Steve Timmis, Acts 29
'The ESV is a dream come true for me. The rightful heir to a
great line of historic translations, it provides the continuity and
modern accuracy I longed for'
- John Piper
