Lutheran Study Bible Released

Augsburg Fortress Publishing has just released their new Lutheran Study Bible. I usually don't report such things on this blog, but this is a significant publication arising from my Evangelical Lutheran Church in America background, and, I am happy to report, I wrote the study notes for the Gospel of Mark. I have not yet seen a physical copy, but it is available in both hardcover and paperback. If you follow the link above, you can read more details, and you can also download some sample excerpts including the full book of Jonah with notes provided by my colleague, Kristin Johnston Largen. An official publicity blurb states:

This exciting new Bible features the NRSV translation as well as introductions, notes, and articles written by over 60 Lutheran pastors and teaching theologians. Reader-friendly, inviting, and engaging, this is the perfect study Bible for both youth and adults who want to encounter Scripture in a fresh and new way!
FEATURES
  • Lutheran theological and catechetical insights
  • Easy-to-read, plain English notes
  • Rich background information and Scriptural cross-references
  • Illuminating maps, charts, and diagram
