A Back-to-School Kind of Giveaway

ESV Student Study BibleBack-to-school seems like an appropriate occasion to mark with a giveaway, and especially so since I haven’t done one of these giveaways for a while. Crossway recently released the ESV Student Study Bible, an adaption of the ESV Study Bible that is targeted squarely at high school and college students. 

With 12,000 clear, concise study notes, the ESV Student Study Bible provides numerous new features—including nearly 900 “Did You Know?” facts, 120 new Bible character profiles, and 15 new topical articles. It also features a new glossary of key terms, more than 80 full-color maps and illustrations, an extensive concordance, and 80,000 cross-references. These and many other features make it the most comprehensive, colorful, and content-rich student Bible available today. Suited to high school and college students, the ESV Student Study Bible is also a versatile resource for anyone engaged in serious study of God’s Word.

Created by an outstanding team of more than 100 evangelical Christian scholars, teachers, and pastors, the ESV Student Study Bible is adapted from the highly acclaimed and best-selling ESV Study Bible. With numerous new features, the ESV Student Study Bible is an invaluable resource. For high school and college students, but equally for all students of the Bible—for everyone who loves to read and learn more about God’s Word. 

I have had the chance to look through one of these Bibles and I really like it. Those “Did You Know?” facts are actually very useful (and just happened to answer a question my son had asked just moments before—“Why does the book of Mark use the word ‘immediately’ so often?”). You can visit the ESV site to get more information, to watch a video, to download sample pages, and so on.

Today I am going to give someone 2 copies of the ESV Student Study Bible; the winner is free to keep them or to give them away. The winner will also take home a complete set of the Crossway Classic Commentary series—all 26 volumes. This series of commentaries offers some of the best historic Bible teaching on many of the books of the Bible and makes a great foundation for a reference library.

All you need to do to enter is input your information below. For this giveaway you’ll need to have a Facebook account. And don’t feel that you need to be a student to participate; it’s open to everyone. Even if you’re not a student, I know you’ll put those Bibles to good use.
