ESV Study Bible

I recognize that study Bibles have disadvantages.  People who are not in the habit of reading critically may accept the notes as “gospel,” not opinion, and study notes can have a tendency to promote laziness in reading.  Still, study Bibles can be a helpful tool when used rightly.

I was excited, therefore, to note that Crossway is producing an ESV Study Bible.  Looks like a good volume from the preview on the website.  Interestingly, purchasing the Bible gives online access to the entire volume.

The NT editor is Tom Schreiner, and study notes editors for particular NT books include S. M. Baugh (Ephesians), Wayne Grudem (Luke), Scott Hafemann (2 Corinthians), Andreas Kostenberger (John), Colin Nicholl (Thessalonians), Grant Osborne (James), John Polhill (Acts), Schreiner (Luke, Romans, Peter, Jude), Frank Thielman (1 Corinthians), and Robert Yarbrough (1, 2, 3 John).

Check it out here.



  1. also ligonier ministires has a sale on them right now.

  2. I believe that the study Bible referred to above is the ESV Study Bible. The one that Ligonier Ministries is currently selling is The Reformation Study Bible (ESV translation). They are 2 different study Bibles. I just don’t anyone getting confused! :)

  3. Pearl, I think you are right; I visited Ligonier and didn’t see the ESV Study Bible there myself, and a search on the site didn’t bring it up. Thanks!

  4. oops, my bad, its just my favorite bible so i got a little excited.
