The apostle Paul prayed that Christians would have strength to comprehend the dimensions of Christ’s love together ‘with all the saints’ (Eph. 3:18), and there is a sense in which that should be both our own prayer and our approach when we study any biblical truth or indeed any passage in Scripture. But how can we ordinary Christians do this without access to a vast library of resources from the two-thousand-year history of the church? The ESV Church History Study Bible is one very substantial and wonderfully helpful answer. Here, without detracting from the importance of being able to ‘read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest’ the Word of God itself, readers are invited to sit down with some of the greatest and most spiritually tuned minds of the ages and engage in Bible study together with them. They may not be ‘all the saints’ but they are certainly ones you would choose to help you in Bible study! The ESV Church History Study Bible promises to be a long-lasting gift to every Christian home and will provide a lifetime of help and encouragement.

I want my preaching to reflect biblical insights from the past as well as the present. So, my preparation typically includes commentary from the church fathers, Reformers, Puritans, and other leaders from church history. Now the ESV Church History Study Bible puts those riches within easy reach of every student of the Word of God. This new resource will help pastors and other Bible teachers expound, illustrate, and apply the Scriptures with greater clarity, creativity, and conviction.

Philip Graham Ryken, President, Wheaton College

The same Holy Spirit who inspired the Scriptures has illumined the church to receive and understand it. We do not read the Word of God as the first ever to do so but in a long line of those whom the Spirit has taught and from whose insights we continue to benefit. The ESV Church History Study Bible brings the fruit of that light to enrich our study of God’s Word.

    This downloaded on Dec 8, and as of Jan 9, there are very few owned resources properly linked in these SB Notes. I'm hoping those links will be added as updates, and it would be helpful to buyers if someone from Logos would post a note here indicating these have been started (or done). See this forum thread for more details: https://community.logos.com/forums/t/220442.aspx
