A while back, I told you about the ESV Study Bible, coming this October. Well, today I learned that you can download the Introduction to the Gospel of Luke. This new pre-release PDF file shares information about the author, date, purpose, literary features, and key themes of Luke. It also includes a timeline and an overview map, helping you situate Luke in its historical and geographic context. Finally, a detailed outline of the book lets you see at a glance the structure of Luke?s Gospel.
Every book in the ESV Study Bible has an introduction like this one, providing you essential information to enrich your study of God?s Word. Learn more about the ESV Study Bible and get a pre-order discount at ESVStudyBible.org.
REMINDER: the 35% pre-order discount ends this Thursday, May 15th.
In related news, my good friend and Brother in Christ, Sam of Gospel Prism tipped me off to this…
ESV Deluxe Compact Bibles are now available. These Bibles have sewn bindings and a larger, more readable font than existing compact ESVs, as you can see (the Deluxe Compact Bible is on the left)

The ESV Deluxe Compact Bible takes the features that have earned the ESV Compact Thinline Bible such popularity and enhances them. The deluxe edition?s slightly larger trim size and larger font allow it to retain its classic portability while improving its readability.
