ESV Study Bible – News, Samples, Interviews, and More September 21, 2008

The ESV Study Bible (ESVSB) launch date of October 15th is approaching fast. The Study Bible team has been busy sharing samples and features online to entice us. Their goal is to help people know what’s inside the Study Bible and how it might best serve them.

All the videos are available to download as high-quality mp4s.
