As you all know, there are an abundance of translations of the Bible in English. I used the NASB (New American Standard Version) for few years, but a few years ago I switched to the ESV (English Standard Version). It’s a great translation and definitely my favorite. Here’s a video from Crossway interviewing church leaders explaining why they trust and appreciate this translation of the Holy Scriptures:
Not only is it a great translation, but Crossway put out the ESV Study Bible in 2008 which is superb. I would definitely recommend purchasing one. Crossway went a step further and out-did themselves by creating a website that owners of the ESV Study Bible can use. ESV Online is an incredible resource for the tech-savvy, digital-age individual who uses their computer for everything. If you haven’t seen it or used it, you have to try it out.
