Introducing the ESV Digital Scripture Journal

This article is part of the ESV Digital Scripture Journal series.

An Innovative Digital Bible for Your Tablet and Stylus

Whether you’re a commuter riding the morning train to work, a pastor preparing for next week’s sermon, or a parent trying to find time for the Word in your busy schedule, the ESV Digital Scripture Journal provides a flexible, on-the-go journaling experience.

Designed from the ground up for use with a digital tablet and stylus, the ESV Digital Scripture Journal is tailored to take advantage of the portability and dynamic features of a digital Bible without losing the beauty and interactive nature of a traditional print Bible. Featuring larger text for easier reading, plenty of space for notes and artwork, and an easy-to-use table of contents for quick navigation, the ESV Digital Scripture Journal is a great resource for students, artists, ministry leaders, seminarians, and academics alike.
