Here are some quotes from http://www.evangelicalbible.com/:
"The ESV is the Bible of choice for those looking for both transparency to the ancient languages, as well as elegance in literary style. It is suitable for in depth Bible study, preaching, worship and Scripture memory. The English Standard Version (ESV), in contrast to most modern translations, is not entirely "new." The ESV is the product of a rich translation legacy which spans some 500 years. The beginning of this heritage was William Tyndale's New Testament (1526). The starting point for the ESV was the 1971 Revised Standard Version (RSV). Over 90 percent of the RSV is retained in the ESV. The RSV was regarded by many as the best modern translation in terms of precision and literary elegance."
