5 Differences Between the ESV Study Bible and the ESV Student Study Bible

We’ve recently been telling you about the new ESV Student Study Bible, coming this July. You may be wondering how it’s different than the ESV Study Bible, and which resource would best fit your needs. Although the ESV Student Study Bible is adapted from the ESV Study Bible, here are 5 ways in which it’s different:

  1. Condensed study notes – The Student Study Bible study notes are essentially a streamlined version of the original Study Bible‘s notes. With 20,000 study notes in the original and 12,000 in the new Student Study Bible, both study Bibles maintain a high level of biblical and theological insight.
  2. Page layout – While the original Study Bible has a single-column layout, the new Student Study Bible has double-column text, leading to a considerably shorter page count and slimmer profile.
  3. Shorter book introductions – The Student Study Bible limits its book introductions to two pages, providing a snapshot of the book and including a map and timeline in each. The original Study Bible‘s introductions are longer and more in-depth.
  4. Different articles – 15 brand new articles have been written for the Student Study Bible, covering topics such as doctrine, ethics, and how to apply the Bible. None of the original Study Bible‘s 50 articles are included.
  5. Three new unique features – The Student Study Bible includes three features that have no counterpart to the original Study Bible: “Did You Know” facts, Character profiles, and a glossary. All three of these are tailored to help students understand the Bible better and distill important information at a glance.

You can download a pdf comparing a full list of features between the two study Bibles.

Overall, the Student Study Bible is slimmer and lighter than the original Study Bible. If you’re looking for a portable study Bible that still has great, theologically rich content, or a study Bible that might be a less daunting resource for a student or new Christian, you should consider the Student Study Bible. If you’re consistently doing concentrated Bible study and regularly need content that goes more in-depth, the original Study Bible could be a one-stop resource for you.
