My return to the blogosphere has been prompted by the much delayed arrival of a review copy of the new, highly-anticipated ESV Clarion–in this case in brown calfskin. I want to save my full review untill I have had some time to “drive it around the block and kick the tires” as it were. Yet, brimming as I am with excitement, I hastily snapped some quick-pics to share. I’ll post my full review sometime soon.
For now, here are some quick first impressions: 1) J. Mark Bertrand must be thrilled; 2) this is more or less the Bible I wanted my ESV Personal Size Reference Bible to be (again, Mr. Bertrand must be thrilled); and 3) I’m gonna need a better camera.
In the meantime, I’d like to hear from you. Who else has finally, after what seems like ages of waiting, found a similar package waiting for you on your doorstep? What do you think? Does it live up to your expectations? Is anyone still waiting?
Feel free to share any thoughts, links, or pics–for the good of the order.
