The Bible is not like any other book because its ultimate Author is God. As the psalmist prayed in Psalm 119:18, "Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law," the new Reformation Study Bible emphasizes the need for the grace of God to lead out of darkness and into the light of Scripture.
The Reformation Study Bible is carefully crafted to offer an unparalleled reading, study, and discipleship experience for every age and stage of the Christian life.

Egon Speneder2 Stars Out Of 5Study Notes almost identical with previous "Sproul Study Bibles", but with a font and lightness of print which is annoying.December 18, 2016Egon SpenederQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0This Bible is almost identical with R.C. Sproul's earlier "New Geneva Study Bible" (for the most part "word for word" the same Study Notes, although some editing was done) plus an additional 50 pages of 14 "Topical Articles" was added, plus almost a 100 pages of 10 various Creeds, Confessions, and Catechisms were added, with the usual Concordance, index, maps etc. Instead of it being a 2200 page Bible it's now well over 2500 pages. The big problem I saw was the Font Size and the lightness of the print. If I make a comparison with the older 1995 edition previously mentioned, there is a huge difference in the clarity of the print. I bought two of these Bibles, one in "New King James" (for a friend of mine) and the ESV for myself. I seriously thought of returning them but my "associate" talked me out of it.

Kenny4 Stars Out Of 5A truely Reformed BibleSeptember 28, 2015KennyQuality: 3Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I'm a great fan of RC Sproul and I enjoy his teachings and lectures and consider him a very well respected theologian in Christian apologetics and theology. However, when it came to this Bible he published I had to give it 4 stars instead of five.
The reason for this is because while the study notes are sound theologically and concise I was not impressed with his comment on Genesis 1:26 in reference to "Let Us make man in Our image and Likeness." RC Sproul says the following to Genesis 1:26, "The use of the plural here is variously interpreted. Some view this as an indication of plurality within the divine unity, hinting at the later NT revelation of the one God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Others, explain this usage grammatically-either as a plural of majesty or as a deliberative plural (in which God directs the statement to Himself). Finally, some argue that God and His heavenly angelic court are in view." This note does not provide a direct approach to the passage instead it gives multiple ways how others view it and the question then becomes with these various views which is more Biblically Orthodox? Furthermore, this is no different than your typical NKJV, NASB, ESV, and etc... study bibles where it gives a general but not a distinctive view of the passage where most of them will say some scholars view the passage as... and others as... it does not help the believer to divide the Word of Truth. I like John Macarthur's comment on Genesis 1:26 in which he provides more a direct approach to the passage notice with me what he says, "The first clear indication of the triunity of God (cf. 3:22; 11:7). The very name of God, Elohim (1:1), is a plural form of El,Man. The crowning point of creation, a living human, was made in God's image to rule creation..."
There is more to this commentary but I don't want to overwhelm anyone who is reading this but as you can see RC Sproul for whatever reason does not provide a direct approach to this passage as Macarthur does. Although, that doesn't mean this isn't a good study bible there are a lot of things I like about this Bible that the Macarthur Bible does not have. Eventhough, I respect both RC Sproul and Macarthur and consider them to be the top notch theologians of our time I more inclined to the traditional reformed views or also known as covenantal theology that of RC Sproul, James Montgomery Boice, Sinclair Fergusion, Philip Ryken, Michael Horton, and many others. That is the reason why I gave the title of my review "A truely Reformed Bible" because like I said as much as I respect John Macarthur I don't share his views on dispensationalism and infant baptism and his study bible does not include confessions, creeds, and catechisms and that is what the reformation study bible does include that anyone of the traditional reformed circles can truly appreciate. I appreciate the reformed faith that embraces the past, present, and future and not throw out the baby with the bath water.
danniAge: 25-34Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Decent Study BibleJuly 2, 2015danniAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3My husband and I have always enjoyed study bibles and have several on our book shelf. I was interested in this particular study bible as it was edited by R.C. Sproul and holds a very Reformed perspective.
There is a small booklet, Welcome to the Reformation Study Bible that assists in describing the purpose and function of the Study Bible. It includes capability to register to Ligoniers web resources as well as several free ebooks in epub or mbi formats.
The study portion of the bible isnt much different than the others that we own. From a brief glance at the study notes on some of the more prevalent scriptures, it definitely reflects a very Reformed perspective. While some study bibles are either very vague or ignore explanations for the more debatable passages, this one seems to be confident in their stance and is not shy about making it known.
This study bible does differ from the others Ive read in the fact that it includes additional articles as well as a Creeds, Catechism, and Confessions section. This is understandable considering the Reformed background. It also has substantially more introductory notes to each book. Often times study bibles include no more than a basic introduction to the write, its audience, and the culture. The Reformation Study Bible seems to delve deeper by including literary features, history interpretations, and specific cultural issues. It definitely allows a greater understanding into the background of each book.
The only downside I noticed was the map section. The maps are small and difficult to maneuver. I very much enjoy the bibles that have multiple page maps that fold in and out. It allows more detail to be viewed.
Overall it seems as though its a comparable study bible to the others we own.
