- “Elegant in every way, the ESV is certain to take its place as one of the finest translations in the grand tradition of the English Bible. Scholars will appreciate the care and nuance of the translation, pastors will appreciate the cadence and rhythm of the text, and all who read it will appreciate the craftsmanship of this richly textured version. It has become my version of choice.”

Crossway has joined with Youth for Christ to publish a special version of the ESV. Here’s Crossway’s description:
In partnership with Youth for Christ, Crossway has created a Bible using the 3Story model. 3Story is the outreach vision and strategy of Youth for Christ using the idea that “I have a story, others have a story, and God has a story.” The goal of a believer is to intersect his or her story with each of the other two stories as much as possible to bring those who don’t know God into relationship with him. These editions of God’s Story are tools to help others build a relationship with God as their stories intersect.
