Church History Study Bible

Church History Study Bible February 27, 2024

The Church History Bible is simply amazing!

This is not your typical study Bible. Instead of notes written by a panel of contemporary scholars, this Bible features commentary notes from the “greats.”

Augustine, Calvin, Luther, Warfield, Wesley, Henry, Edwards (Jonathan), Gill, the Church Fathers, C.S. Lewis, and many others.

It’s an incredible array of commentary on every Bible verse by the theologians and scholars of the past.

The Bible is elegant and the formatting is wonderful.

I highly recommend it.
