I was looking at other single-columned Bibles online last night and I came across the single-column ESV Reference Bible. I thought to myself, “great, I’ll add it to the collection at some point,” but then I read this: “Verse-by-verse rather than in paragraphs—every verse begins a new line.” (see page samples) Wait a second—what?!! Why?!! The whole beauty of single-column Bibles is reading them like any other book. Paragraphs help to maintain the flow so why get rid of them? The ESV Study Bible doesn’t go line-by-line (see sample pages, pp. 6-8); why not make a single-column ESV like that? I think Crossway needs to scrap the line-by-line format. It just doesn’t make sense.
