After grumbling about it for a while I finally broke down and bought an ESV [English Standard Version] Study Bible.(Used up a Barnes & Noble gift card). Going to switch my Bible reading to that for a while and check out the notes (if it doesn’t give me a hernia first–check out its size if you don’t know what I’m talking about). I’m not going into it with a great attitude, however, because I believe it is not gender neutral and that will sink it for me as a usable translation.
Have you had any good/bad/notable experiences in using either the English Standard Version, or the ESV Study Bible? Have you noticed a difference in your arm muscles? 😉
