The ESV Study Bible is a study Bible published by Crossway Bibles of Wheaton, Illinois, a division of Good News Publishers. It combines an evangelical commentary with the English Standard Version text.

The ESV Study Bible contains more than 2,750 pages of extensive Bible resources, including commentary, maps, illustrations, charts, timelines, and articles created by a team of 93 evangelical scholars and teachers. In addition to the 757,000 words of the ESV Bible itself, the notes and resources of the ESV Study Bible comprise an additional 1.1 million words of explanation and teaching.[1] In 2009, it garnered the ECPA Christian Book Award for Book of the Year, the first time a study Bible achieved this distinction.[2][3] It also was named WORLD Magazine's Book of the Year in 2009.[4]
