More than 20,000 study notes, 96 theological articles, contributions from 50 evangelical scholars,19 in-text maps, and 12 charts combine to make this one essential study Bible.
The contributing scholars of The Reformation Study Bible have the highest academic credentials. Each is committed to the inerrancy of the Word of God and willingly submits to the authority of the Book they are trying to explain. The in-depth study notes included in The Reformation Study Bible were compiled from more than 50 distinguished biblical scholars, including Drs. J.I. Packer, James Boice, and Wayne Grudem. In addition, readers will appreciate book introductions, an extensive cross-reference system, plus illuminated words and terms within the Bible that are crucial to an in-depth understanding.
This unique study Bible was first published in 1995 as The New Geneva Study Bible in the New King James Version and was renamed The Reformation Study Bible in 1998. In March 2005 The Reformation Study Bible transitioned to the English Standard Version and has since sold more than 100,000 copies. However, the distinctive attribute of this Bible is not the Scripture translation itself, but in its extensive notes, charts, and cross-references, including more than one hundred sidebars on the core doctrines of the Christian faith.
