Superb Bible, purchase experience, and fast shipping. The deep brown is an attractive color. The cowhide leather cover is soft, supple, and feels great. Paper quality is excellent with minimal ghosting. But… the REAL treat are the study notes. The depth of information provided, and quantity of color maps are simply amazing. The main text and study notes font is very readable. The cross references within the text are extensive. The ESV Study Bible has enriched my study of God’s word immensely.

I really like this study Bible. The leather cover is very beautiful and the color is great. The inside pages are fine in my copy- no crinkles and no printing issues. I have held this same bible in the black genuine leather cover and the Trutone. This cover (cowhide) is my absolute favorite. Evangelical Bible is so great. My order was fulfilled within an hour of placing my Bible order. The price is great too- it is actually $4 less than what I purchased this Bible for last week!

I just received the Crossway ESV Study Bible (Cowhide, Deep Brown) and it is an amazing bible. I have had an ESV Study Bible with the tru-tone cover for over nine yers and the cover finally gave out. I replace it with this one and I am not at all disappointed. Thank you to Evangelicalbible.com for great and fast service.

Just received this study bible. I want to let you know it is in perfect condition. I personally had some concerns after reading some of the reviews, but after reading the latest reviews and seeing the YouTube reviews I decided to get it. So glad I did. It is perfect.

I LOVE THIS BIBLE! Two times I went to purchase this Bible, but earlier reviews on here scared me. I am so glad that I ignored them and just trusted the guys at Evangelical Bible to send me a quality product. They even helped me with my fears and opened up the plastic, giving it a quick once over. It is as advertised!!! If you like deep, textured brown, this ESV Study Bible is for you. The outside is a blend of beauty and toughness I would expect out of an expensive full grain wallet. The first thought I had when I opened it was, “This feels like my wallet.” It’s the perfect edition to sit on my desk and get used every day. There is absolutely nothing wrong with my Bible. Much thanks to Crossway for making such a great looking ESV Study Bible and Evangelical Bible for selling it at a very fair price, getting it to me so quickly.

I will tag along with the people above, but without any quality or service issues at all. I dock it one star because Crossway redesigned their large print edition from being a huge, desk only edition, to a size nearly the same as this original edition. The new large print edition functions the same as this one except that everything about the book block is better, more readable, in a real book size. It’s the edition they should have put out first. I comment on that one under that edition. I had no quarrels with the leather cover on mine.

ESV Study Bible, Deep Brown Cowhide, copy #2: Having returned the defective ESV-SB reviewed above, I was glad to receive a second copy via Beth’s very kind helpfulness. I was so eager to open the box as soon as it landed on my porch!
Sadly, copy #2 left Crossway in considerably worse shape than its predecessor. I am reluctantly giving it only one star, because I truly cannot understand how Crossway wrapped and boxed it, allowed it to leave the factory, and sent it out to the marketplace.
The spine imprinting was crooked, skewed left to right from the top of the spine. Because of the skewing, the imprinting was blurred. By the time one’s eyes reached the bottom of the spine, the imprinting was illegible due to such blurring. Next, the block was set so crookedly into the cover, that the pages were uneven in all four directions because of being set and glued askew into the block. Depending on their individual diagonal orientation, the corners of the block either caught in the turned-over leather corners, or missed them completely. The block was printed clearly and evenly, which of course was a great pleasure, except… cockling existed to a severe degree of distraction. I rather enjoy a couple of barbed-wire bites on the cover, and a little cockling to keep me on my toes (kenisthetic learner, I am) but this cockling was quite over the top.
Beth was again totally supportive. She was apologetic and concurred that Crossway could improve their QC. I was fully refunded and took a different direction, which is reviewed in the Schuyler Classic Ref. KJV section, in purple.
EB will work very well with those with reasonable requests for returns and exchanges. I am grateful and glad to have found, and be able to support, such a fine local business providing such fine Bibles. Thank you reader, and mostly, Beth and EB.

ESV Study Bible, Deep Brown Cowhide, copy #1: I ordered one of these, which arrived promptly and well-packaged from EB. My initial response on unboxing was one of being struck with the beauty of the leather, and being enthralled as a child with all the treasures lying between those covers. Unfortunately as I inspected the Bible, I discovered that the cover had a number of rather significant, weak-feeling creases, or folds, in the leather. There were a couple on the rear and three quite obvious ones on the front. These creases/folds made the leather seem weak and unstable, as if it weren’t able to hold the block evenly. It raised the question in me as to whether the Bible would be sufficiently durable over time.
Beth at EB is probably the nicest, most accommodating customer service person I’ve ever dealt with in my whole life of 62 years. I felt badly about returning it, and she assured me that their goal was that I would receive a Bible that I truly could love and enjoy. She had a second copy sent out to me pronto.
The second copy arrived promptly as well; its review follows below. Thank you.

I think the ESV Study Bible is one of the best Study bibles available. The deep brown cowhide is an absolutely beautiful cover. It is soft and supple like butter in your hand. My only complaint is the gutter crinkle, although it is very minimal compared to some bibles I have, and the fact that I wish they would have used a little thicker cowhide for the cover to increase durability. Still of all of The Bibles that i own it is by far my favorite and a bargain at the $100 price range listed.
