Although I'm a woman, I was excited to receive and share this new Bible with my husband. He's not really found a study Bible that he has really liked. There were several things about the ESV Men's Devotional Bible that he really liked. He thought the introductions to the books of the Bible were well-written for men. The introductions were insightful to him. He also liked the articles found throughout. They are written by well-respected men of faith and address topics that matter to men today.
The ESV (English Standard Version) was new to us. It's a literal translation. There were parts that we really liked because it made so much more sense than other translations. At other times, it wasn't our favorite version because it wasn't the 'familiar' words. There are pluses and minuses to every version so it didn't detract from the overall enjoyment.
I think Sean looks forward to using this for years to come. It's well constructed and should hold together for a long time.
About the ESV Men's Devotional Bible:
Our world presents daily distractions that can easily displace Christ as the center of a man's heart and life. The goal of the ESV Men's Devotional Bible is to strengthen and encourage men through the life-giving Word of God and sound devotional content aimed at nurturing godliness. With 365 theologically rich and gospel-centered devotions drawn directly from the Bible, this all-new resource was created under the editorial oversight of Dr. Sam Storms with contributions from over fifty Christian leaders. Introductions orient men to each book of the Bible, exploring its unique contribution to a man's walk with God. Thoughtful and instructive articles address the importance of sound doctrine, life in the local church, leadership, the heart, calling, and a host of other relevant issues for today. The Men's Devotional Bible will strengthen men in their walk with Christ, helping them apply the gospel and the truths of God's Word in their homes, churches, and workplaces.
