About the author
First published in 2001, The ESV Bible carries forward the trusted legacy of the Bible in English – the legacy established first in the Tyndale New Testament (1526) and the KJV Bible (1611). With this legacy as the foundation, the ESV reflects the beauty and majesty of the original languages, first captured centuries ago by these early Bible translations.But the ESV also provides the most recent evangelical Christian Bible scholarship and enduring readability for today. The ESV translation process itself was based on the trusted principles of essentially literal translation – combining word-for-word accuracy with readability and literary excellence.Forward by Dan Watson, Youth and Young Adults pastor of Hillsong Church UK.
