ESV Men's Devotional Bible - Review and Giveaway

I know, I know, a Bible review again!  I told you I have a slight obsession with Bibles.  I also happen to really love being able to give them away! (Giveaway at the end of this post!)  There are so many styles to choose from, so many versions to read, and so many features to look for.

 I love the smell of a new Bible that has been opened for the first time and the hope of new beginnings as you start with Genesis 1:1, "In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth." I also love the look of an old, faithful Bible that has been loved - with it's crinkled pages, sermon notes, prayer requests and personal thoughts jotted in the margins.  It is like visiting a close friend.

Did you know that the Bible is the best selling book of all time?  I may be the one driving that number up these days! Haha!

And this one!  The ESV Men's Devotional Bible published by Crossway is another one of my new favorites.  Make no mistake, the Bible is for everyone.  You do not need fancy fonts, tons of maps, or leather covers - God's Word is sufficient.

But sometimes it is nice to find a Bible that just seems to suit you, like the wallet you never want to throw away or that one shirt you continue to wear even though it is worn to the bare threads.  I think the ESV Men's Devotional Bible will be that Bible for the special man in your life.  Yes, it is for men. With its black slip cover and hard cover as well, it is a manly looking Bible. More importantly, there are 365 devotions written by men for men.  These devotions, based solely on God's word, are meant to inspire and strengthen men in their walk with Christ.  Each short devotion, one for each day of the year, applies the Gospel to important areas in a man's life- homes, work, churches and workplaces.

  Other features include-

  - Brand new book introductions- These each have background information, Key theme and how the book pertains to a man's heart
  - 14 brand-new articles- These 1-2 page articles cover topics from doubt to fathering to life in the local church.  They would make a great jump start to a men's prayer or accountability group.
  - Dictionary of key terms
  - Ribbon marker
  - Smyth-sewn binding
  - Lifetime guarantee on TruTone edition
  - Packaging: slipcase (TruTone), L-card (HC), permanent slipcase (Cloth over Board) 

Retail Price: $34.99

From a few men I know that have had a chance to look through this Bible-

"Relevant teaching information every guy should know!"
"Great layout, easy to read format."
"The articles are well thought-out and written."
