Online Gospel Transformation Bible Now Available

The print editions of the ESV Gospel Transformation Bible have been available for a couple weeks now, but we want to remind you that it’s also available in several digital formats as well.

The online web app, hosted on ESVBible.org, is tightly integrated with all the study tools ESVBible.org offers and is free for everyone who purchases a print edition of the Gospel Transformation Bible.

This online edition is also available for purchase separately as a web app/ebook bundle. When you purchase the web app from Crossway.org, you’ll get free access to the ebook version (.epub and .mobi formats).

Finally, we’re excited to announce that within the next 3 to 4 weeks we expect to release the Gospel Transformation Bible mobile app for iOS (Android version to follow). The mobile app will automatically sync notes, highlights, and favorited verses with your ESVBible.org account. 

It’s our fervent prayer that the Lord would use the Gospel Transformation Bible to build up his church, and that through it readers would increasingly see Christ in all of Scripture and grace for all of life. 

(Teaser: We’re also very close to updating the ESV Bible and ESV Study Bible apps to sync with your ESVBible.org account. While we can’t be specific about the exact date, you can expect this within the next few weeks – before the release of the GTB mobile app. More from us on this exciting development soon!)

  1. Do you have plans to release the Gospel Transformation Bible for Logos Bible Software? that is my preferred ebook platform.

  2. Hi Mike! Thank you for your question! We’ve contacted Logos and they are considering adding the Gospel Transformation Bible to their software.

  6. Howdy,

    I currently own the Study Bible app for iOS (iPad); I’m wondering if you’ll be releasing this in a way that can integrate into my existing app or purchase a new app with both inside, side by side; don’t care for multiple programs to access the same thing, it’d be nice to have em side by side, and it would be cumbersome switching between.

    Thanks for any light you can shed on this.

  7. Hi Joe–Thank you for your question. We currently do not have plans for an app like this, but it is something that we will definitely take into consideration.

    Thanks again!

  8. I am enjoying my print version very much. The web app works decently on my laptop. But seems virtually useless on my iPad. It doesn’t allow me to change independently. It just mirrors whatever is open on my desktop. Am I missing something?

  9. Hi Nick – Glad to hear that you’re enjoying the print version! I tested the app on my iPad and everything worked smoothly. If you’re still experiencing trouble, provide us with some more details and then hopefully we can figure it out.

  10. Lizzy, I’m very excited about the iOS app for the Gospel Transformation Bible. Do you have an updated timeline of when it will be available?


    Comment by Blake — November 8, 2013 @ 5:07 pm

  11. Hi Blake -
    The Gospel Transformation Bible iOS app is currently in the final stages of development and we’re expecting it soon. We will be sure to alert you as soon as it’s released!

  12. Is the updates for the ESV Bible and Study Bible still coming before The GTB app or should we expect them on the same day?

    Comment by Brett — November 14, 2013 @ 9:46 pm

  13. Hi Brett – The free ESV app is going to be released very soon, and the GTB and ESVSB apps (released together) will follow in a matter of weeks.

  14. Still on schedule? Just curious since its been a couple months since this post, and we haven’t heard any new developments yet.

    Comment by Jonathan — December 6, 2013 @ 5:37 pm

  15. Hey Lizzie any updates on the updates? I have a few friends who have been itching to get it!

    Comment by Brett — December 9, 2013 @ 6:06 am

  16. Hi Brett and Jonathan –
    Because of an unforeseen delay, the mobile app is still under development. We will be sure to let you know of any updates as soon as we can. Our apologies for any inconvenience!

  17. Just wanted to check in and see where things were at with digital editions of the GTB: logos? iOS apps? etc.


    Comment by Joe — February 10, 2014 @ 10:57 am

  18. Joe – We’re working together with Logos as quickly as we can, but the iOS apps are still a few months out. We will be sure to announce any new digital releases. Thank you for your patience!
