  • Cross-References to Articles
    The reader’s notes will often refer to introductions, articles, charts, and maps through The Lutheran Study Bible.

    Hello, what I want to know is how much is reproduced from the hard copy volume? Does it have all the various articles, not just footnotes? Does it have the artwork and woodcuts, like the book version? Thanks
