This August, Zondervan will add a vital member to its study Bible family. The New International Version of the Bible, the world’s most read and most trusted modern-English Bible translation, is now complemented by study notes and resources designed and edited by general editor and The Gospel Coalition co-founder, D.A. Carson. The new NIV Zondervan Study Bible presents the best of evangelical biblical scholarship, appealing to a broad spectrum of Bible readers.

The all-new study tools provided in the NIV Zondervan Study Bible support the project’s unique goal of “unpacking God’s story:”
- first book-by-book
- then as collections of biblical literature
- and finally tracing the Bible’s complete witness to the gospel.
Bible students from every walk of life will grow deeper in their understanding of Scripture as God’s story is unpacked by
- nearly 20,000 new, comprehensive verse-by-verse study notes
- a 4-color interior with over 60 informative charts
- more than 90 maps
- and hundreds of photos.
In addition, the NIV Zondervan Study Bible houses a library of 28 articles by award-winning scholars covering topics such as covenant, the Bible and theology, and love and grace, among others.
Releasing within the year-long NIV 50th anniversary celebration, the NIV Zondervan Study Bible reflects the vision that drove the commissioning of the original translation committee in 1965. Dr. Douglas Moo, assistant editor of the NIV Zondervan Study Bible and also the chair of the current Committee on Bible Translation—the governing body that oversees the NIV translation—agreed to commit the additional time to this project because, he says, “I am convinced a study Bible that focuses on putting the whole story of the Bible together is a vital resource for the people of God.”
Under the guidance of Carson, the NIV Zondervan Study Bible also represents the work of associate editors Richard S. Hess, T.D. Alexander, Douglas J. Moo, and assistant editor Andrew David Naselli, as well as 60 additional contributors. Says Tim Keller, pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, “This NIV Zondervan Study Bible is a tremendous tool for informed Bible reading and study. The notes are written by the best assembly I’ve seen of faithful, international scholars.” More information is available at UnpackingGodsStory.com.
