It is my privilege to review the English Standard Version Men's Devotional Bible. This is a very nice Bible that has 365 devotionals scattered throughout. In the back, there are quite a few articles that are written on various topics. All of the devotionals and articles deal with everyday issues that men face.
I personally love the ESV. It is among my top three Bible translations to read and study. It is basically KJV in modern day English. This Bible is very well presented. It's printed in a very easy to read font. The chapters are very clearly marked. I personally think that it would be a great Bible to use a highlighter to highlight verses that stand out to you. The devotionals are dispersed throughout, and they are placed in such a way as to not distract from the scriptures.
The biggest complaint I would have isn't major, it's just more of a preference than anything. The words of Jesus are not highlighted. I'm don't necessarily care if they are red, blue or green, I just prefer a Bible with the words of Jesus highlighted.
Overall, I think it is a great Bible for men to have. It's good to read a devotional every once in a while that is written specifically for men, and for that to be right along side the scripture is really nice. One other thing I should emphasize is that each devotional is based on a specific passage of scripture, so the devotional is placed right beside of that passage. It's a great feature that makes this Bible stand out. I would give this a 5 out of 5 star rating. This is a Bible that I will enjoy for a long time.
