Introducing the ESV Systematic Theology Study Bible

One Bible I have been excited about for sometime is the ESV Systematic Theology Study Bible published by Crossway, which published many great ESV Bibles such as ESV Study Bible and the Gospel Transformation Bible. This Study Bible has been put together with the sole purpose of showing how the Bible is one book rather than a collection of books. Here is a brief summary:

Theology should, first and foremost, be rooted in God’s Word. The goal of the ESV Systematic Theology Study Bible is to demonstrate how all Christian doctrine arises from the pages of the Bible. Created to help readers understand how Scripture forms the basis for our understanding of God, humanity, sin, salvation, and eternity, this study Bible features over 400 short in-text doctrinal summaries connecting Christian beliefs to specific Bible passages, 25 longer articles explaining important theological topics in greater depth, and introductions to each book of the Bible that highlight the unique ways each book contributes to the whole of Christian theology. Created by an outstanding team of editors and 26 contributors, this resource has been created to help Christians better connect what they believe about God with the very words of Scripture.

This Study Bible has articles and notes written by Biblical scholars and pastors such as J.I. Packer, Sam Storms, Michael Reeves, Fred Sanders, and many more. Here are just a few endorsements:

The ESV Systematic Theology Study Bible is a gold mine of rich theology extracted from the deep quarries of Scripture. This valuable resource is easy to read and accessible to all, yet with a depth that will appeal to Bible teachers and church leaders alike. Its many doctrinal summaries and theological articles are strategically placed and show how the many threads of theological truth come together seamlessly to form one tapestry. Every reader who studies this invaluable tool will become a better theologian and a stronger believer.”

Steven J. Lawson, dean of the doctor of ministry program and professor of preaching, The Master’s Seminary; president and founder, OnePassion Ministries; author, The Kind of Preaching God Blesses

“If we hope to stand against the trends of our times, vague impressions will not suffice. We need nothing less than the mind of Christ, our Victor over all. The ESV Systematic Theology Study Bible can teach us to think the way Christ thinks, with his categories and his insights, clearly grounded in the words of Scripture. I rejoice at this impressive new resource that will serve to develop believers in this generation who are wise and courageous for God’s glory.”

Ray Ortlund, lead pastor, Immanuel Church, Nashville, Tennessee; council member, The Gospel Coalition; president, Renewal Ministries; author, Marriage and the Mystery of the Gospel

“This study Bible makes clear that Christian doctrine arises from God’s inspired Word. A rich store of notes and articles offers guidance in thinking theologically and coherently about God’s revelation in the Scriptures. Readers will find wonderfully accessible help in exploring the themes and doctrines that emerge from the Bible’s pages.”

Kathleen Nielson, author; speaker; senior adviser, The Gospel Coalition
