"How I wish I had had a Bible like this a long time ago-a Bible that briefly yet clearly sets each passage of Scripture in the context of the larger story of the Bible. I look forward to recommending this resource to many who want to go deeper in understanding how the Bible fits together."
-Nancy Guthrie, author, Even Better than Eden: Nine Ways the Bibles Story Changes Everything about Your Story
"The Bible is united by a single plot centering on Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of the Father-but sometimes we lose the trail. Greg Gilbert helps us find it again in his excellent commentary throughout this Bible."
-Michael Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California; author, Core Christianity
"Too many view the Bible as a disconnected series of moral tales interspersed between impossible commandments, woven into a maze of mysteries that somehow produces a message about a nice Jesus in the New Testament to counter the mean God of the Old Testament. Greg Gilbert carefully and pastorally undoes such a view by showing how all the parts of the Bible contribute to the single story thread of a gracious God who is determined to overcome sinful humanity's choices and corruptions with the redemptive work of Christ Jesus."
-Bryan Chapell, Pastor, Grace Presbyterian Church, Peoria, Illinois
"The ESV Story of Redemption Bible is a wonderful tour guide through the drama of redemption in both the history of Israel and the life, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ. This Bible is God's divinely inspired interpretations of his actions in redemptive history. Jesus Christ is not just the main person in one of many events in the story of Gods people; he is the final revelation of the fact that God has a story, a drama of redemption."
- Justin S. Holcomb, Episcopal Priest; Professor, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary; coauthor, Rid of My Disgrace and God Made All of Me; editor, Christian Theologies of Scripture
"As we read through the Bible, it is sometimes easy to lose sight of the single story of God's plan to redeem his people through the one Savior, Jesus Christ. While there are many great resources that help us see this story, if we are not actually returning to read the Scripture ourselves, then we will fail to see this great story in all of its glory. The ESV Story of Redemption Bible is an excellent tool to help us read the Scriptures for ourselves while also helping us keep our place in the story in view. I highly recommend this resource to help readers see God's glory in the grand story of redemption more clearly."
-Chris Bruno, Professor of New Testament and Greek, Bethlehem College and Seminary; author, The Whole Story of the Bible in 16 Verses and The Whole Message of the Bible in 16 Words
"As Christians, we confess that we believe the Bible is God's Word, but studies show we don't read it. It seems we would rather use the Bible to find personal promises, encouraging words, and pieces of advice, than spend time studying it. I think one reason for this flawed approach is that many Christians don't understand that the Bible is one book, and like other books, it unfolds as a story-the story that makes sense of all other stories. But wouldn't it be helpful to have a guide sitting with you as you read to help you make sense of the story as it unfolds? And wouldn't it be helpful if your guide let you know where in the history of salvation the passage youre reading fits? The ESV Story of Redemption Bible is just such a guide. Have you had trouble getting through the Bible? Pick up the ESV Story of Redemption Bible and start anew. As you read the unfolding story of redemption from Genesis to Revelation, you will marvel at the beauty and glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ, from the pages of the Spirit-inspired Scriptures."
-Juan R. Sanchez, Senior Pastor, High Pointe Baptist Church, Austin, Texas; Cofounder and President, Coalicion; author, Seven Dangers Facing Your Church and 1 Peter for You
"Many times I have sat under Greg Gilbert's wise and insightful expositions at church. Greg regularly weaves together the redemptive story of the Bible with keen observations and applications. Now you can follow along too with this helpful guide through the Bible. Seeing the redemption of Jesus play out in the symphony of Biblical themes in chronological order helps us hear the message of the Bible with a fresh, majestic beauty."
-J. Mack Stiles, Pastor; author, Evangelism and Marks of the Messenger
