I’m delighted to report that Crossway have produced the kind of Bible that everyone should read – one without verse numbers! I’m all for using verse numbers as references, but verse numbers (and chapters, more on that later) severely hinder natural reading. Add a double-column layout into the mix and things just get worse. Hence the new ESV Reader’s Bible being designed to help people read the Bible! It has a beautifully simple layout and I am looking forward to getting a hold of one.
