a NIV Zondervan Study Bible, edited by D.A. Carson

Remember when I shared this celebration about the 50th anniversary of the NIV?

The NIV Zondervan Study Bible, featuring Dr. D. A. Carson as general editor, is built on the truth of Scripture and centered on the gospel message. An ambitious and comprehensive undertaking, Dr. Carson, with committee members Dr. T. Desmond Alexander, Dr. Richard S. Hess, Dr. Douglas J. Moo, and Dr. Andrew David Naselli, along with a team of over 60 contributors from a wide range of evangelical denominations and perspectives, crafted all-new study notes and other study tools to present a biblical theology of God’s special revelation in the Scriptures. To further aid the readers’ understanding of the Bible, also included are full-color maps, charts, photos and diagrams. In addition, a single-column setting of the Bible text provides maximum readability.

Here’s a nice video:

Check it out. Seriously, the study bible edited by DA Carson is going to be pretty awesome, I suspect.

What is the significance of “Zondervan” in the title of the NIV Zondervan Study Bible?

The Zondervan name has grown to be a trusted source for Bible resources that are academically solid and accessible to the lay Bible student, such as the Zondervan Handbook to the Bible, the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Dictionary and the Zondervan Atlas of the Bible. The NIV Zondervan Study Bible includes material of the same high quality as other Zondervan-labeled resources—up-to-date, from some of the best evangelical scholars around the world, and presented in a way that is friendly to the average adult reader. Additionally, like many other Zondervan biblical study resources, the NIV Zondervan Study Bible’s beautiful, full-color interior draws in readers and presents memorable aids to understanding the Bible.
