Blog Bible Giveaway — None Left

Update at 11:30 AM EDT (April 20): We don’t have any free Bibles left. Thanks to everyone who participated!

Do you:

  • Have a blog with a blogroll?
  • Live in the US, Canada, the UK, or Australia?
  • Want a free ESV Bible?

We’re giving away a free ESV Bible to the first 100 people who add the ESV Bible Blog to their blogroll.

What to do to claim your free Bible:

  1. Add our link (http://www.esv.org/blog) to your blogroll.
  2. Choose which Bible you’d like free. You can have any Compact TruTone or Compact TruGrip edition published by Crossway.
  3. Send an email to blog@esv.org containing the url of your blog, your postal mailing address, and the color/design of the Bible you would like.

We will visit your blog to double-check your blogroll, email you to inform you that you’ve been accepted, and then we’ll ship you a free Bible. No strings attached.

We ask that you keep us on your blogroll at least until your Bible arrives (2-3 weeks), but your blogroll is yours–you’re free to remove us at any time. We hope, though, that if you enjoy the ESV, we’ll earn a permanent place on your blogroll.

Legal info: This offer is open to bloggers in the US, Canada, UK, and Australia. Only blogs that link directly to the ESV blog in their blogrolls qualify. A “blogroll” is a list of links that appears on most pages in a blog. Limit one free Bible per blog and per household. We will not use your email address for any purpose beyond communicating with you about this offer.

Here’s an example email:

  1. [...] Having wanted a new, more literal translation of the Bible for a while now, and after hearing about it a lot from a guy called Adrian, I finally ordered myself a copy of the ESV. I ordered a copy of the genuine leather ESV Deluxe Reference Edition (it’ll even have my name engraved on it!), from DiscountBible. I had heard that I could get a free one in a giveaway from the ESV folks themselves, but unfortunately that wasn’t open to New Zealanders. Now I just have to wait a few weeks for it to arrive… [...]

  2. A while back, the folks at the ESV Blog had a free Bible giveaway for bloggers and I got on their list. (Many thanks to Susanna Cornett at Cut on the Bias for her post on the giveaway, which is how I found out about it.
