Crossway Introduces ESV Outreach Edition

ESV Outreach Edition cover. It looks similar to other ESVs, with a light cover and dark border.Crossway has announced the next typesetting of the ESV that they’re producing: an Outreach edition. They wanted a Bible inexpensive enough to give away, which means they needed one with fewer than 1,000 pages: the Outreach edition has 928 pages and retails for $5.99. Crossway expects it to be available in January 2006.

The typesetting uses a different typeface from other ESV editions. It has two columns per page and includes section headings and the ESV textual footnotes. We’ll post PDFs on the blog in January 2006 so you can see the layout for yourself.

Here’s Crossway’s description:
