We have been gearing up at Family Christian for the release of the Archaeological Study Bible, published by Zondervan. I have seen advanced copies and I am very, very impressed. It is a nice balance of scholarly reflection and evangelical sensibilities. Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary is the driving scholarly force behind it, so this balance is evident throughout.
The Bible itself is beautiful. It's the first full color Bible ever published. The pictures, graphs, and articles will certainly deepen many people's experience with the Bible. And that is a good thing.
Zondervan is putting a lot of eggs in this basket - paying for training and contests and such. I hope it pans out for them. If you come into Family Christian in Fayetteville looking for a Bible, rest assured that I will recommend to you this one!
