Thread: ESV Study Bible?

  1. #1

    Default ESV Study Bible?

    What chance, if any, is there that the ESV Study Bible might be included in Bibleworks as an addon module?

    I have been impressed with the ESV Study Bible's rich set of notes, maps, etc. and would love to have them close at hand as I work inside Bibleworks.

    Yours hopefully,
    Stuart.

    As I understand it, any one who purchases the ESV automatically gets access to all of the online content. When I asked about whether BW would plan on adding it, it seemed the fact that Crossway was already making available the information was at least part of the reason why they did not seem interested (I am sure other reasons had to do with licensing costs, perceived interest, etc., see here for instance.).

    The ESV study Bible is great, and does include great notes and maps as well as other extras. They do provide online access to the entire contents and other items as well. The interface is not too much fun, but it seems to get the job done.

    As far as Bibleworks including the ESV study Bible, I am not sure as from what I understand, Bibleworks is trying to remain more of an exegetical tool and not involve themselves too greatly in commentaries or bible study notes (which will raise the price significantly and take away from exegetical work).

    Just my two cents, someone let me know if I may have misunderstood something.

    For the record, I do agree with you, it would be "nice", but I don't think it will necessarily happen.

    Even though he's UMC, Aaron's right. About this. On every count.

    But that's probably about it.

    I thought this was available on Logos but I was wrong. However, it is available for many portable formats like PDA (olivetree, Laridian, etc).

    Default ESV Notes

    We did ask Crossway about this at ETS/SBL and they seem open to the possibility of adding the ESV notes to BibleWorks. Since we haven't actually talked royalties with them yet, I can't say if it would be a base package item or an addon. Stay tuned.

    I also use WordSearch for my non-exegetical work.
    They are now making the ESV study notes available as an add-on book.
    I still haven't decided to buy those or go for the actual book. Price wise it is pretty close to a toss up.

    Default Next best thing--external link to ESV Study Bible

    Here are a couple of external links from BW into the online ESV Study Bible (still requires an account). If anyone needs a little more help on how to make these links (or find more links into google, wikipedia, dictionary.com, other biblegateway translations...) you can find it here.

    Code:
    //
    // External Link #27
    //
    [ESV Study Bible - verse]
    Operation = Open
    Directory = NULL
    File = http://esvstudybible.org/search?q=<book>+<chapter>%3A<verse>
    Parameters = NULL
    MenuLocation = Browse Window All
    TextType = Bible Verse
    MapToVersion = ESV
    Lookup = Verse Reference
    MenuText = ESV Study Bible - verse
    Enabled = 1
    //
    // External Link #28
    //
    [ESV Study Bible - chapter]
    Operation = Open
    Directory = NULL
    File = http://esvstudybible.org/search?q=<book>+<chapter>
    Parameters = NULL
    MenuLocation = Browse Window All
    TextType = Bible Verse
    MapToVersion = ESV
    Lookup = Verse Reference
    MenuText = ESV Study Bible - chapter
    Enabled = 1

    Default ESV STudy Bible

    He All,

    We now have a license to sell the ESV Study Bible as an addon. It will require a good bit of work though so the release is not imminent. We probably won't add more study Bibles, but this one does have a lot of nice useful maps, charts, etc. so we decided to add it.

    Mike
