I’m glad that I now have a copy of Concordia’s Lutheran Study Bible. I’m a fan of Study Bibles (if you couldn’t tell), and even though I’m not a Lutheran, such a Study Bible can be a very helpful way to see how a significant stream of the Reformation tradition interprets the Bible and seeks to apply the Gospel to all of life.
Some of the features of the LSB:
- 26,500-plus uniquely Lutheran study notes.
- Over 2,000 application notes and prayers for every part of the Bible.
- 80,000 center column cross-references.
- Over 900 cross-references to 120 full or half-page maps, charts, and diagrams.
- 220-plus articles and introductions to biblical books and topics.
- Insights from early church, medieval and Reformation era church fathers (including, of course, Luther).
- Uses the ESV translation.
- Durable Smyth-sewn binding.
