Theology should, first and foremost, be rooted in God’s Word.

Praise for ESV Systematic Theology Study Bible:
Steven J. Lawson, President, OnePassion Ministries, Dallas, Texas:
The ESV Systematic Theology Study Bible is a gold mine of rich theology extracted from the deep quarries of Scripture. This valuable resource is easy to read and accessible to all, yet with a depth that will appeal to Bible teachers and church leaders alike. Its many doctrinal summaries and theological articles are strategically placed and show how the many threads of theological truth come together seamlessly to form one tapestry. Every reader who studies this invaluable tool will become a better theologian and a stronger believer.
Trillia Newbell, speaker; author, Enjoy; Fear and Faith; and United:
The ESV Study Bible has been a go-to for me since its inception. There is no doubt I will reference and learn from the ESV Systematic Theology Study Bible as well. It is a needed resource that allows readers to access explanations of key texts right on the same page as the passages themselves. But it is not just a book about theology in the abstract. A feature called ‘Theology for Life’ helps us to apply theology to our everyday life and to deepen our understanding and appreciation of the gospel as we read. The ESV Systematic Theology Study Bible is a wonderful resource for anyone serious about theology.
Derek W. H. Thomas, Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina; Teaching Fellow, Ligonier Ministries; Chancellor’s Professor, Reformed Theological Seminary:
A milestone in publishing, the ESV Systematic Theology Study Bible provides readers views from above the biblical landscape to ensure a coherent and certain trajectory through the sixty-six books of the Bible. This resource is utterly trustworthy and beautifully designed—Crossway has done it again. Marvelous in every way.
Ray Ortlund, lead pastor, Immanuel Church, Nashville, Tennessee; council member, The Gospel Coalition; president, Renewal Ministries; author, Marriage and the Mystery of the Gospel:
If we hope to stand against the trends of our times, vague impressions will not suffice. We need nothing less than the mind of Christ, our Victor over all. The ESV Systematic Theology Study Bible can teach us to think the way Christ thinks, with his categories and his insights, clearly grounded in the words of Scripture. I rejoice at this impressive new resource that will serve to develop believers in this generation who are wise and courageous for God’s glory.
Kathleen Nielson, author; speaker; senior adviser, The Gospel Coalition:
This study Bible makes clear that Christian doctrine arises from God’s inspired Word. A rich store of notes and articles offers guidance in thinking theologically and coherently about God’s revelation in the Scriptures. Readers will find wonderfully accessible help in exploring the themes and doctrines that emerge from the Bible’s pages.
Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary:
Too often, people treat the teachings of the Bible like a jumble of puzzle pieces left in the box. This study Bible is a great tool to fit the pieces together into a beautiful picture of our Lord and his ways. Its sidebars give brief and lucid explanations of how particular Scriptures reveal doctrine for practical life. The sidebars are cross-referenced to each other, indexed at the end, and more fully developed in concluding articles. Consequently, this book traces many paths by which those hungry to know the Word can travel into deeper understanding and faith. May God use this volume to renew the evangelical mind and spirit that he restored to the church through the Reformation.
