ESV, The Psalms (TruTone over Board, Brown/Walnut, Timeless Design)
... Crossway hit a home-run with The Psalms, ESV. Sure, I would like art-gilding and more binding and color options. But for what it is, it is exceptional. I recommend you take and use, particularly for personal meditation and corporate worship."– Holy Writ and Sacred WitnessSee All
“This is at once the most beautiful and the most readable rendering of the Psalms I have seen. The 11 point font paired with line matching and printed on extremely opaque paper (I dont have specs, but there is little ghosting) make this collection a delight to peruse. And one advantage of having the Psalms bound alone is that this effect is achievable, even in a book with a meager 4.5”x 6.5”x 1” trim size! And the use of red letters and numbers for titles and verse numbers is both elegant and understated...not flashy, but certainly attractive. Each new Psalm begins a new page, allowing each poem to stand on its own.See All
....I appreciate The Psalms for its beautiful redundancy. You don’t need a psalter this large—the psalms are already in your Bible! The only raison d’etre for such a book is the pleasure of reading. Only in keeping with my note on liturgical books, ‘the pleasure of reading’ doesn’t quite capture the point. It is the pleasure of worshipful reading, the pleasure of communing with the word that books like this enhance.”– J. Mark Bertrand, Bible Design BlogSee All

“When I learned that Crossway had plans to release The Psalms, I was particularly pleased. Yes, I have other psalters, but none using the English Standard Version. Since that’s the translation I use most often, the one used in my church, I could hardly wait. That’s why, as soon as I flipped open the clamshell box, I just about cried. This is a beautifully designed and nicely produced book, one I look forward to using for years to come.See All
