Given the privilege of an “early look” at this Lutheran Study Bible I will say unequivocally that it has been worth the wait!  This Lutheran Study Bible is a veritable library for a reader of Holy Scripture. Articles which give clarity and a deeper understanding of biblical themes are many. One particular entry sheds light on specific and significant content from each biblical book. The notes which give meaningful detail on most of the verses are clearly written and easy on the eyes, and they are written from the viewpoint that the Bible is God’s perfect Word which reveals Christ Jesus as the Savior who has come to give us Life. I cheer for this. Those who have provided the verse by verse explanatory notes and the accompanying articles for this volume do so from the understanding of scripture which proclaims the true purpose of God’s Book: to tell us of the Christ of God who came to be one with us and to redeem us from sin’s curse. Justification by grace through faith is the foundational truth from which the Editors have worked. The Church is grateful. I note that this volume lists the dates of Easter up to A.D. 2030. A reprint is undoubtedly in the works! I want my great-grandchildren to have this in their day as well, way up through Easter 2060 – at least!”
