Concordia University Chicago and The Lutheran Study Bible
Here is a nice article in The Forester, the magazine of my alma mater, Concordia University Chicago.
What Martin Luther’s 1534 Bible translating the Greek and Hebrew Scriptures into German was for his times, The Lutheran Study Bible is for today’s English-speaking Lutherans. This year, Reformation Day, October 31, will mark the release of the long-awaited Lutheran Study Bible. Historically timely news to be sure, but a particular point of pride for members of the Concordia University Chicago campus community, because four members of the theology department were integral in bringing the project to life and completion. CUC’s Rev. Robert A. Sorensen, Ph.D.; Rev. Andrew E. Steinmann, Ph.D.; Rev., Michael A. Eschelbach, Ph.D. and Rev. James A. Kellerman contributed their scholarship, map, research and editorial skills to the project. Concordia Publishing House (St. Louis) describes The Lutheran Study Bible as “the first in English to be prepared by Lutheran contributors from more than 20 church bodies. Current scholarship, insights from the Church Fathers, and rich devotional commentary provide meaningful perspective for both young and mature Christians.” The new edition of the Bible is unique, because it is a large, one-volume edition, that offers for the first time since the Missouri Synod has moved completely to English––what the English speaking Lutheran Church had enjoyed while using the German language before: a “from the ground up” Lutheran study Bible, with exclusive use of Lutheran notes, commentaries, articles and annotations.
