The ESV Study Bible

I've said it before, but I believe that at the time of this post, the ESV Study Bible is the best study Bible on the market.  On my shelves are a number of study Bibles and with the exception of the HCSB Study Bible (which takes a distant second place), the ESV Study Bible is far superior to the rest.  The ESV Study Bible does a fantastic job of providing a great mediating translation (The English Standard Version) of the Bible partnered with the wonderful resources, maps, charts, articles, and commentary of the Study Bible.  

But really, you don't have to take my word for it; others highly recommend and endorse the ESV Study Bible too. Some of these leaders include Tullian Tchividjian, Al Mohler Jr., Joshua Harris, Mark Driscoll, John Piper, Wayne Grudem, and many others.

Here, Tullian Tchividjian takes us through a great look at what the ESV has to offer you, a student of the Bible.

J. I. Packer, Theological Editor for the ESV Study Bible, discusses the ESV Study Bible from his unique perspective.

If it's not obvious by now, I highly recommend the ESV Study Bible and believe everybody should have a copy.  I might suggest however, that you make a little more of an investment and get the leather or imitation leather bound copy because the hardback version seems to have issues with its binding.
