World Magazine Crowns ESV Study Bible 2009 Book of the Year

Congratulations to Crossway publishers on the selection of the ESV Study Bible (hereafter ESVSB) as the recipient on World Magazine's 2009 Book of the Year. Marvin Olasky, editor in chief of World Magazine, says the ESVSB is "informative throughout and spectacular in parts." He cites the many articles which have been praised for their clarity and thoroughness. He also says he took it for a "road test" as he went through the book of Leviticus. He enjoys the various charts and illustrations and the occasional note acknowledging that "we just don't know." He concludes, "The Bible is the book for all years; this study Bible is a particular winner in the Year of Our Lord 2009."

In March of this year the ESVSB was selected as the Book of the Year and also won in the Bible category by the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association.
