Reformation Trust Publishing, the publishing division of Ligonier Ministries, recently announced the release of the Reformation Study Bible, Condensed Edition.
After distributing more than 110,000 copies of the Reformation Study Bible since 2015, this new Condensed Edition represents an expansion to the product family in order to serve Bible readers looking for a more portable solution.
“Christians value the verse-by-verse commentary found in the Reformation Study Bible,” said J.D. Bridges, Ligonier’s Vice President of Global Outreach, in a press release. “This new Condensed Edition includes the best of that commentary in a portable study Bible, half the weight of the original and designed for life on the go.”
According to Dr. Burk Parsons, Associate Editor for the Reformation Study Bible, the ministry’s “ultimate aim” is “to get God’s people not only to read God’s Word but to study God’s Word, love God’s Word, obey God’s Word, apply God’s Word, hide God’s Word in their hearts, and teach God’s Word to their families, their neighbors, and the nations.”
“That is why we publish study Bibles — to help fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus Christ, for His glory, not our own,” stated Parsons, who is a Teaching Fellow and Chief Publishing Officer at Ligonier Ministries, as well as Editor for Ligonier’s Tabletalk devotional magazine.
Some features of the new Condensed Edition include single-column Scripture from the English Standard Version, Christ-centered introductions for each book of the Bible, cross-references, concordance, and high-resolution color maps in the back.
According to Bridges, “Response has been strong and, Lord willing, we’ll continue to release more cover styles in upcoming months.” The Condensed Edition was initially released in four cover styles — Genuine Leather Black, Imitation Leather Red, Imitation Leather Brown, and Imitation Leather Black.
Many students of God’s Word have warmly welcomed the Reformation Study Bible because of its reliable commentary endorsed by ministry leaders and authors such as Dr. R. Albert Mohler Jr., Joni Eareckson Tada, Rev. Kevin DeYoung, Dr. Mark Dever, Dr. Ligon Duncan, Dr. Rosaria Butterfield, Dr. David F. Wells, and many more.
With each purchase, Ligonier includes an extra $400 worth of additional study resources (both digital and print) available for free through an innovative online registration process.
