ESV Archaeology Study Bible Review
I was recently sent the ESV Archaeology Study Bible to review. I have never reviewed a Bible before, and it is different than any other review that I have ever done.
It was fun being able to read this Bible “for work” (aka my blog) and grow familiar with what it has to offer.
As a small disclaimer before we get started, I was sent this Bible through Crossway’s Blog Review Program. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
The exterior of this study Bible is absolutel beautiful!
The illustrations are great and useful in studying the Word of God.
“Archaeology is a major component in the reconstruction of the environment in which the Bible was given.”
An aspect of this study Bible that I really liked was the new glossary that define key words used throughout the ESV Archaeology Study Bible.

Description from Crossways website:
The ESV Archaeology Study Bible roots the biblical text in its historical and cultural context, offering readers a framework for better understanding the people, places, and events recorded in Scripture. With editorial oversight from Dr. John Currid (PhD, University of Chicago) and Dr. David Chapman (PhD, University of Cambridge), as well as contributions from a team of field-trained archaeologists, the Archaeology Study Bible assembles a range of modern scholarship—pairing the biblical text with over 2,000 study notes, 400 full-color photographs, 200 maps and diagrams, 200 sidebars, 15 articles, and 4 timelines. These features bring life to the ancient texts, helping readers situate them in their historical context while recognizing the truth that the eternal God became flesh entered human history at a specific time and in a specific place.
