ESV Study Bible Online: Free for the Month of March

Crossway announced yesterday that they were making the Online ESV Study Bible available free to anywhere, anywhere, for the entire month of March.

A couple of features worth noting:
  • You can listen to the audio of the ESV from narrator David Cochran Heath.
  • You can take and save your own notes in the Online ESVSB.
