The Grace & Truth Study Bible (NIV) edited by Albert Mohler. Zondervan. 2144 pages. 2021
****

I enjoy using Study Bibles, including the Reformation Study Bible, MacArthur Study Bible, ESV Study Bible and the Spurgeon Study Bible. The new Grace & Truth Study Bible, which uses the New International Version (NIV) of the Bible, with Albert Mohler serving as General Editor, is intended to help Christians read God’s Word, understand it, and develop a constant hunger to know more and more biblical truth. Mohler tells us that every note, every explanation, is intended to help the reader understand the Word of God. The study Bible will benefit new believers who are looking to understand the Christian faith for the first time, and it will help maturing Christians who are eager to dig deeper into biblical truth. Mohler writes that the entire project, and each of the writers and editors involved, is committed to the complete truthfulness and trustworthiness of the Bible. This project is graciously evangelical, Reformed, and complementarian.
In addition to Mohler as General Editor, James M. Hamilton, Jr. serves as Associate Editor: Old Testament, and Benjamin L. Merkle is Associate Editor: New Testament. The Managing Editor is Mitchell L. Chase. The impressive list of contributors includes Derek Thomas (Ezra–Nehemiah), Ray Ortlund (Ecclesiastes) and Mohler (Hebrews).
The Grace & Truth Study Bible is available in a variety of different options, such as leather, hardcover, personal size, large print and Kindle, which is the edition I am reading. The Bible includes a concordance and full color maps.
Although my preferred version of the Bible is the English Standard Version (ESV), I look forward to using this new study Bible.
Here is a short video in which Mohler introduces the Grace & Truth Study Bible.
