Bibles of the Reformation- The ESV Study Bible

I really enjoy studying my Bibles and I am grateful that God has given such a desire to learn his word. I will be posting some reviews and descriptions of some of my favorites that I use regularly (and some on my wishlist that I have borrowed from the library).

The ESV Reformation Study Bible is one of my favorites. I especially enjoy the notes on church history and doctrine and book outlines. I also like the readability and lovely English of the ESV.

Read the full description of the book below:

26434: ESV Reformation Study Bible, Hardcover ESV Reformation Study Bible, Hardcover

By Ligonier Ministries

Widely considered one of the best tools available for Bible study and previously only available in the New King James Version, the Reformation Study Bible (RSB) has been updated to the readable and accurate English Standard Version (ESV).

Respected theologian Dr. R.C. Sproul, founder and chairman of Ligonier Ministries, served as this study Bible's general editor. "The Reformation Study Bible contains a modern restatement of Reformation truth in its comments and theological notes. Its purpose is to present the light of the Reformation afresh," stated Dr. Sproul.

The thousands of in-depth study notes included in the RSB were compiled from over 50 distinguished biblical scholars, including Drs. J.I. Packer, James Boice, and Wayne Grudem. In addition to the comprehensive study notes, the RSB offers readers extended discussions on the authority of Scripture, the atonement, and other key aspects of biblical theology.

The RSB is intended for use by anyone who wants a deeper understanding of the Scriptures. The reader will appreciate book introductions, an extensive cross-reference system, and illuminated words and terms within the Bible that are crucial to an in-depth understanding. This new edition in the ESV is published by Ligonier Ministries and produced and distributed by P&R Publishing of Phillipsburg, NJ.
