We are starting to receive responses to the review copy of The Lutheran Study Bible we sent out to a number of folks to take a look at. Here are the first few:

“Without a doubt The Lutheran Study Bible is the most significant Study Bible ever produced in the Lutheran tradition. Moreover, it is one of the most thorough Study Bibles that has been published in any faith, and it will certainly benefit other like-minded individuals in the Protestant tradition. I know of no other concise resource that provides a purely distinct Lutheran interpretation of the Holy Scriptures. It is with the highest level of confidence that I commend The Lutheran Study Bible.”

“Both lay and clergy alike will make good use of the copious study notes, maps, charts, cross-references, and articles included in The Lutheran Study Bible. I appreciate the attention paid to the writings of the church fathers, which preserve this important part of our heritage. This is an excellent study Bible following in the tradition of the Weimar Bible, the study Bible of 17th century Lutheranism. It will be a valuable addition to every personal Library.”

Rev. Gaylin R. Schmeling, President
Bethany Lutheran Theological Seminary
Mankato, MN

“A study Bible by Lutherans for Lutherans without neglecting our connection to the larger church! Employing the best current biblical scholarship The Lutheran Study Bible provides links between the scriptural bases for the teachings central to the faith and our confessional heritage that will help Lutherans more clearly articulate why we believe what we believe. I particularly appreciate the emphasis on the centrality of Scripture in faith formation within the context of a Christian Congregation.”

Rev. Dr. John G. Brunner, President Emeritus
Eastern District, The  Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod

    Having a prof at a SBC seminary provide very favorable comments is very impressive. Given the significant differences between Lutheran and Baptist theology, this is amazing.
