What study resources are included with the ESV Bible text?
Preaching the Word
This 42-volume commentary series was written by pastors for pastors, as well as for all who teach or study God’s Word. With pastor R. Kent Hughes as the series editor, each volume features an experienced pastor or teacher modeling expository preaching and practical application.
Noted for its steadfast commitment to Biblical authority, clear exposition of Scripture, and readability, this series is widely accessible—for both new and seasoned pastors, as well as men and women hungering to read the Bible in a fresh way.
ESV Study Bible
Winner of the 2008 ECPA Book of the Year Award, the ESV Study Bible was designed to help you understand the Bible in a deeper way. Created by a diverse team of 95 leading Bible scholars and teachers—from 9 countries, nearly 20 denominations, and 50 seminaries, colleges, and universities—the ESV Study Bible features a wide array of study tools, making it a valuable resource for serious readers, students, and teachers of God’s Word.
ESV Gospel Transformation Bible
The ESV Gospel Transformation Bible features all-new book introductions and gospel-illuminating notes written by a team of over 50 outstanding pastors and scholars. This specially prepared material outlines passage-by-passage God’s redemptive purposes of grace that echo all through Scripture and culminate in Christ. Focusing on heart transformation rather than mere behavior modification, their points of application emphasize the Hows and Whys of practical application to daily living—in short, how the gospel transforms us from the inside out.
ESV Men's Devotional Bible
With 365 theologically rich and gospel-centered devotions drawn directly from the Bible, the ESV Men's Devotional Bible 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.
ESV Women's Devotional Bible
The ESV Women’s Devotional Bible features materials designed especially for women. The book introductions, character sketches of key figures, all-new daily devotions, and all-new articles have been written by both women and men. These contributors include professors, musicians, authors, counselors, homemakers, and conference speakers.
ESV Literary Study Bible
Combining thousands of insightful notes with the complete ESV Bible text, the ESV Literary Study Biblehelps readers understand God's Word more fully, in all its richness and beauty. It highlights the Bible's storylines, complex characters, historical settings, literary genres, motifs, theological themes, imagery, and important terms, making the Bible come alive with greater clarity and impact. This one-of-a-kind study Bible is an indispensable tool for devotional reading and in-depth study.
ESV Student Study Bible

It also features a glossary of key terms, more than 80 maps and illustrations, an extensive concordance, and 80,000 cross-references.
