I am grateful for this new edition of the Reformation Study Bible which includes, among other helpful appendices, the Second London Baptist Confession of Faith of 1689. The study notes are written by humble, trustworthy theologians who approach Scripture reverently and with the desire to help make its meaning clear. By honoring the sacred text (what is ‘above the line’) as the infallible Word of God written the contributors help us benefit from their insightful yet fallible insights (what is ‘below the line’) all the more.

A rare jewel combining the dignity of godly scholarship to showcase the singular power of God’s Word in the accessible and authoritative ESV translation. The study notes are like a fine and compressed oil, bringing together generations of Reformed scholarship to ease the burden of meaning and heighten the charge of godly responsibility in the hearts and minds of readers. This study Bible will increase and defend the biblical literacy and fluency of men, women, and families, which is the bedrock of a life and society that fulfills the chief end of man: to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.

It’s like having some of the best scholars right there with you while you are reading your Bible.

The Reformation Study Bible is a model of concise doctrine, clear explanation, accurate scholarship, and fair discussion. Where Scripture is plain, the Reformation Study Bible speaks without hesitation or meekness, and where the Bible needs sensitive interpretation, the appropriate nuance is offered with great wisdom.
Grace Presbyterian Church
A good study Bible is one of the most valuable resources a Christian can possess. If faithful teachers are gifted by the Holy Spirit for the edification of the church, then the Reformation Study Bible is a gift to us all.

I’m thankful that the good folks at Ligonier have continued to work to improve what was already one of the best study Bibles. This is a resource I plan to use regularly in my own study of God’s Word and in preparing messages.
Capitol Hill Baptist Church
Detailed and comprehensive, the Reformation Study Bible is substantive enough for the mature Christian and at the same time accessible for the new convert. This will set a new standard of excellence for many years to come.

Reformed Theological Seminary Jackson
Gathering wise theologians from the Reformed perspective, Ligonier Ministries has given a great gift to the church: a highly readable, yet deeply rich, study Bible—accessible to both professionals and laypeople. In an age when it seems as though ‘everything goes’, when accurate exegesis seems to have been swallowed up by prooftexting–if texts are referenced at all–this Bible will shine like a beacon for decades to come.
Author of Good News for Weary Women
Though I have a library full of much-loved and well-worn commentaries and Bible study tools, this is my one indispensable resource. Substantive and yet accessible, thorough and yet concise, doctrinally reliable and yet immediately practical, the Reformation Study Bible is a marvelous go-to, turnkey, all-in-one discipleship and worldview curriculum.
Parish Presbyterian Church
The Reformation Study Bible will be welcomed by all serious minded Christians. It blends insightful exegesis, illuminating commentary and instructive notes on textual and theological issues. The cause of Christ and the people of God will be enriched by this indispensable resource.
Cambridge Presbyterian Church
This new study Bible is an excellent resource for Christians of all ages who desire to grow in the knowledge of the Word of God and of God Himself. The book introductions and commentary on the text itself skillfully combine learning and reverence for God’s Word; this study Bible should thus help reinforce the joy and wisdom the Christian derives from reading the Scriptures. At a time when such Bible resources abound, this one is highly recommended.

The Reformation Study Bible is further proof of Ligonier Ministries’ commitment to teaching the Word of God and making it accessible to as many people as possible. With study Bibles available to accommodate just about every theological persuasion, it is refreshing to see the nuances of Reformed theology articulated in explanatory notes and selected articles. The Reformation Study Bible is the fruit of the labor of some of our finest Reformed biblical scholars and theologians and is an asset to the body of Christ at large.

Wales Evangelical School of Theology
This study Bible is a real beast, packed full of useful historical and geographical background information to aid us in our study and understanding of God’s Holy Word. What could be better? All the hard grammatical work has been done for us by a who’s who of trusted theologians and pastors so we just get to enjoy the fruit of their labors as we grow in grace through the study of God’s Scriptures.
This new edition of the Reformation Study Bible is a very useful tool for personal devotions, sermon preparation, Sunday school lessons, and general information. The historical, geographical, theological, exegetical, and practical insights contained in the more than 20,000 notes plus maps, charts, and articles are priceless. I am recommending my students, colleagues, and churches to acquire more than one copy of it. What a gift to pass on to friends.

The new Reformation Study Bible is perfectly balanced between comprehensive and exhaustive.
Tolle Lege Press
In terms of an accurate, readable, and direct translation, supplemented with a wealth of accurate and insightful theological observations that are rooted in Reformed theology and enhanced with historical, grammatical, and archeological information, the new Reformation Study Bible is without peer. The creative and informative maps, resource indexes, and visual illustrations serve to enhance what is an exceptional study Bible. Without reservation and with pastoral anticipation of its blessing in the lives of those who use it, it is my privilege to recommend this invaluable asset for those who desire to study the Word of God.

The Reformation Study Bible is the perfect combination. The text of the English Standard Version is the most accurate literary translation of the Bible in English, and the notes edited by R.C. Sproul are exegetically faithful and theologically sound. This study Bible is pure gold, and I commend it to every serious student of Scripture.
Philip Graham Ryken
The new Reformation Study Bible is a rich resource for students of God’s Word. This attractively formatted study Bible adorns the English Standard Version with introductions, notes, and articles characterized by theological integrity and faithful scholarship. I am delighted to commend it.

Brimming with introductions, outlines, study notes, maps and articles, the Reformation Study Bible quenches the thirst of even the most ardent student of Scripture as it helps us draw deeply, and joyfully, from the wells of salvation, directing us always to the grace of God in Jesus Christ, in whom our cup runs over. This study Bible will fan into flame a love for the Word of the Lord, and even more, a love for the Lord of the Word.
