New Testament scholar Thomas R. Schreiner, who serves as one of my associate deans here in the School of Theology, served as the New Testament Editor for the ESV Study Bible. Duane A. Garrett contributed the notes for the Book of Proverbs, John Polhill wrote the study notes for the Book of Acts, and Professor Schreiner wrote the notes for the Books of Luke, Romans, 1 and 2 Peter, and Jude.
The ESV Study Bible also includes numerous articles on various topics, and several faculty members contributed to the project in this way.
Mark Dever, the chairman of the board of trustees at Southern Seminary, wrote the article, “God’s Plan for Salvation.” Professor Schreiner wrote articles entitled, “The Theology of the New Testament” and “Reading the Epistles,” Peter Gentry wrote an article on “The Septuagint,” Gregg R. Allison wrote an article on “The Bible in Christendom: Roman Catholicism,” and Bruce Ware contributed two more articles: “The Bible in Christendom: Liberal Protestantism” and “The Bible in Christendom: Evangelical Protestantism.” James M. Hamilton, Jr. was also consulted on New Testament charts and timelines.
The ESV Study Bible is set to release on October 15, 2008. It will certainly be worth your picking up a copy, and giving some to your friends.
