Later this year, Zondervan will release the “NIV Zondervan Study Bible” which seems to be quite an impressive volume. D.A. Carson is the editor, and there are over 60 different contributors.
RTS Charlotte’s own Dr. John Currid, the Carl W. McMurray Professor of Old Testament, contributed the portions on 1 and 2 Samuel.
Dr. Currid is the author of numerous other works, including Against the Gods, Crossway ESV Bible Atlas, and commentaries on every book of the Pentateuch (see description at EV Press). In addition, he is a favorite in the classroom amongst the students at RTS Charlotte.
Here is the description of the NIV Zondervan Study Bible:
The NIV Zondervan Study Bible, featuring Dr. D. A. Carson as general editor, is built on the truth of Scripture and centered on the gospel message. An ambitious and comprehensive undertaking, Dr. Carson, with committee members Dr. T. Desmond Alexander, Dr. Richard S. Hess, Dr. Douglas J. Moo, and Dr. Andrew David Naselli, along with a team of over 60 contributors from a wide range of evangelical denominations and perspectives, crafted all-new study notes and other study tools to present a biblical theology of God’s special revelation in the Scriptures. To further aid the readers’ understanding of the Bible, also included are full-color maps, charts, photos and diagrams. In addition, a single-column setting of the Bible text provides maximum readability.
