About the Author:
The English Standard Version is an essentially literal translation of the Bible that seeks as far as possible to reproduce the precise wording of the original text and the personal style of each biblical writer.

Following a distinct word-for-word translation method, the ESV Bible captures the precise wording of the original texts by rendering each Hebrew or Greek word with an equivalent English word. This result is a modern translation that stands in the classic tradition that starts with the King James Version of 1611 and stretches through to the Revised Standard Version of 1971.
