    In short, I think the lack of line-matching in this Bible is a major flaw. The legibility is lacking, unfortunately. With that said, everything else about the Bible appears to be superb, and I still would have purchased it had I known about its legibility issues.

    The pages are very thin which is completely understandable given the amount of text of scripture and annotations combined. It is an appropriately large Bible, but had they made the pages any thicker I could see it easily becoming cumbersome and unruly in its size. I understand fully why some opacity had to be sacrificed and therefore why the legibility suffered a bit. But given that, it stands to reason that the attempt would be made to augment legibility in other ways, namely line-matching. I think it would have helped greatly. Honestly, I assumed (wrongly) that there would be line-matching when I purchased this Bible, as all my other Premium Bibles have it. If I had known it didn’t would I still have made my purchase? Yes, I would have. It’s a beautiful Bible. I’ve heard amazing thing about the ESV Study Bible and I can’t wait to start diving in to God’s Word with my wife. I plan on having it a long time, and even passing it down to my kids one day. I got our family name imprinted on it as well as “Hebrews 4:12”. It’s a beautiful Bible. I think the fact that I love it so much and plan on keeping it for the long-haul makes me even more frustrated that they didn’t put that extra little touch of quality into it. Oh well. I’d still recommend it. You’ve been warned though.

    One of the problems with assessing the ESV Heirloom Study Bible is that Crossway’s standard editions of the ESV Study Bible are already beautiful and well-made. This edition takes everything up a notch—edge-lined bindings, goatskin covers, three (or four) ribbon markers, premium printing on European Bible paper. Even the page design has been given a slight update.

    This is indeed a beautiful study Bible, arguably the most beautiful study Bible ever published. Bible readers looking for the best possible study Bible experience will not be disappointed.

    That being said, some of the criticisms leveled by other reviewers have more to do with the limitations of study Bibles as a genre rather than deficiencies with this particular edition. Line matching is difficult to achieve with any study Bible because almost every page has a different layout and because the typesetter cannot afford to give paragraph and verse breaks (poetry) an entire line. There simply isn’t the room with all the notes, articles, charts, maps, etc. For the same reason, larger fonts and thicker paper must be abandoned. That being said, the ESV Study Bible design team has made excellent use of the page count they had to work with—not an inch of page layout is wasted.

    This Bible is premium, given the limitations of study Bibles, but if you’re looking for a simple ESV reading experience, you probably want Schuyler’s Quentel or Crossway’s Omega Thinline. Both feature thicker paper, larger fonts, and line matching—but to compare those editions to the ESV Heirloom Study Bible is to compare apples and oranges (if oranges came with 20,000 study notes, 50+ articles, 240 maps and illustrations, and 200+ charts).

    I have always loved the ESV Study Bible. It’s only fitting that it finally has a cover that matches the quality of the work inside of it. The art gilt adds a really nice touch, that I always wished my ESV SB had. Now it matches neatly with my Imperial Blue Quentel. Like always, Evangelical Bible took a great product, and made it premium. I was not going to miss this opportunity and regret it later!

    Crossway has really upped its game in Bibles. The additions of the Legacy and Single Column Personal Size Bibles to the Heirloom series, and the printing of the Reader’s Bible (both one-volume and multi-volume), all of which I own, make Crossway the outstanding publisher of quality and useful Bibles in the world today in my opinion. But the publishing of the ESV Study Bible in the Heirloom edition is the crowning achievement of this series. With its uniquely beautiful and accurate illustrations, charts, and background information, the ESV SB was already the most useful and helpful study Bible on the market. Now it has a cover and features to match. I can look forward to passing down mine to subsequent generations. What a gift to God’s people! I congratulate Crossway on its decisions. As a pastor who owns several types of Bibles for different uses, about seven years ago I wrote and urged them to print premium single-column editions of the Study Bible, of a Bible suitable for reading large sections of Scripture, of a smaller Bible suitable for carrying to church and Bible studies, and of a Bible specially formatted and designed for preaching and teaching. Since that time I have seen them produce Bibles of each type, all with Smyth sewn bindings, goatskin covers, and art gilded pages, all on quality paper. Thank you, Crossway! Your service to God’s Kingdom is exemplary.
