Publishers Description
You’ve read the Bible, but do you really understand it?

You want to know more, but are you intimidated by the hundreds of study Bibles on the shelf?

What are the key concepts and ideas you need to experience the Bible fully?

Where would you even start looking?

Featuring the full text of the Contemporary English Version of the Bible-the most reliable, readable, and relevant translation on the market today-The Essential Study Bible includes:

- sixteen color maps
- color charts and time lines
- special overviews, outlines, and introductions
- two easy-to-understand categories of notes that explain the key geographical, historical, and cultural references and the most important theological concepts in the Bible
- Web references for further research-not available in any other study Bible
- pull-out quotes for memorization

Provided and edited by the American Bible Society-the marquee name in Bible scholarship in America-the supplementary information is organized in a clear, user-friendly fashion. No other study Bible on the market is as chock-full of information and, at the same time, as easy to understand.

Accessible, informative, but not overwhelming, The Essential Study Bible will allow you, for the first time, to fully experience the Bible.

More About American Bible Society

American Bible Society The American Bible Society is an interdenominational, non-profit, donor-supported ministry whose mission is to make accurate and affordable translations of the Bible available to everyone. Founded in New York City in 1816, ABS is dedicated to presenting the Bible in compelling ways so that people can experience life in its fullness through faith in Jesus Christ. ABS is responsible for a number of "firsts": the first Bibles provided to the U.S. military in 1817, the first pocket Bibles for soldiers during the Civil War, and the first Bibles in hotels. The society extends its outreach internationally through the United Bible Societies (UBS), a fellowship of 126 international groups, and was instrumental in founding this global fellowship in the interest of efficiency and making a greater impact. In 1999 alone, more than 63 million copies of the Society's publications were distributed throughout the United States and the world.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great Bible  Aug 11, 2008
This is an excellent Bible to take your reading a step further and expand understanding of God's Word. The CEV is a relevant, easily accessible translation. I have been reading it for a while in a non-study Bible, and wanter to go deeper with a study Bible. This Bible has been everything I hoped and then some!
Comparisons  Apr 8, 2008
If we look at Douglas Southall Freeman's monumental biography of George Washington, in several thick volumes, then we want to buy, and do buy, a one volume condensed version, we can hardly be surprised. The essentials of the man's life are there. Likewise, the Essential Study Bible is just that. It is NOT the learning Bible. But the things that went into the Learning Bible appear, naturally, in the Learning Bible.
Inferior to CEV Learning Bible  Apr 5, 2008
Having earlier bought the CEV Learning Bible I was a bit intrigued yet leery of this Essential Study Bible by ABS, fearing that it was simply TLB in a new cover. So I emailed ABS and was told that the contents were very different. Based on that I bought it and was in for a big disappointment! The ESB's notes were adapted from TLB and upon comparison there was much that was NOT there which was in TLB.

My advice: You are better off buying TLB as it is much more in content, with coloured pages throughout verses the white, black, and grey tones of the ESB. Maybe TLB was deemed more "kiddish" so the ESB was launched with a more "mature audience" look, but it is just cosmetic. TLB is many times better and makes for greater learning than the ESB. In short, it was a regrettable purchase.
