Commercial reception

The ESV Study Bible was first published in October 2008, supported by a $1 million advertising campaign.[1] Its first run of 100,000 copies sold out before the copies had finished being printed. Within the first six months of availability, 300,000 copies had been printed in total.[2]

Critical reception

When it was first published, the ESV Study Bible was well-received, receiving endorsements from many prominent evangelical pastors and theologians.[2]Andy Naselli, writing in the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society wrote, "No other study Bible matches the ESVSB in quantity or quality."[2]


In 2009, it garnered the ECPA Christian Book Award for Book of the Year, the first time a study Bible achieved this distinction.[3][4] It also was named WORLD magazine's Book of the Year in 2009.[5]
