Crossway’s ESV Men’s Devotional Bible was designed specifically to strengthen and encourage men through Scripture, devotions, and articles to make a spiritual and moral transformation. There are over 50 contributors that include Christian leaders, pastors, and professors. It uses the 2011 ESV text. In this review I take a look at the hard cover edition. Binding This edition is hard cover with a dust jacket. It’s a minimal and elegant black with gold lettering on the spine. The dust jacket has a white section with the title and gold highlight. It was definitely designed to be masculine. I’m not...Read More

Most of the Bibles that I review are complete Bibles. I rarely read a stand-alone Bible book. Every now and then one comes along that makes sense as a stand-alone book.

I would love to see other Bibles available with...Read More
