Get J. I. Packer’s Notes in Your Study Bible

Reading the Bible on an app

One thing that sets the Faithlife Study Bible apart from other study Bibles is your ability to customize it. The FSB comes preloaded with a huge collection of study notes, and a modern English translation—the Lexham English Bible—but you can also add other commentaries, Bible dictionaries, and study notes from your favorite Christian leaders, such as the ESV Study Bible Notes, edited by J. I. Packer.

Packer’s writing is uniquely warm. His seminal work, Knowing God, is loved across virtually all denominational lines. Michael Cromartie of the Ethics & Public Policy Center said it best: “Conservative Methodists, and Presbyterians and Baptists could all look at it and say, ‘This sums it all up for us.'” Time Magazine listed Packer among the 25 most influential Evangelicals in North America, and his writing still resonates with readers today. Of the ESV and companion study notes, Packer said:

I was privileged to act as General Editor of the English Standard Version, and now that I look back on what we did in producing that version, I find myself suspecting very strongly that this was the most important thing that I have ever done for the Kingdom, and that the product of our labors is perhaps the biggest milestone in Bible translation in certainly the last half century at least, and perhaps more. And now, as Theological Editor of the ESV Study Bible, I believe that the work we have done together on this project has set an altogether new standard in study Bibles.

Augment your FSB with the ESV Study Bible Notes from today!
