ESV Prayer Bible {Review}

“A triumph of scholarship.” ―Leland Ryken, Emeritus Professor of English, Wheaton College

My thoughts on this Bible:

I really like this Bible. It is different than any other Bible that I have. If you feel like you need help in your prayer life, or struggle with your words during prayer, then this Bible will most definitely help you! Throughout, there are many different prayers from many people through the ages. I like reading the different prayers from others in this Bible. 🙂

The ESV Prayer Bible is done in single column and the cover is a nice blue {almost like a denim blue} hardcover, with gold foil lettering. I am pleased with it and recommend it to anyone! ! 🙂


This Bible is a great price on Amazon right now!

Thank you Crossway for sending me this Bible for review. 🙂
