“Every Christian agrees that there is no book in all the world like the Bible. Within its covers lies the knowledge of God and of eternal life. It is the place where Jesus is revealed to us and where we see ourselves. Like the fields of Boaz in the book of Ruth, it is full of heaven-sent bread, open to us to come, glean, and feed upon its riches. It is a home report of heaven and a guide for getting there. The Bible truly stands alone. But perhaps Christians do not agree on which edition of the Bible is the best in the world. Having looked over the following pages, I think I may have found it. This is a study Bible whose additional articles, notes, tables, and quotations have only one purpose: to place the text of Scripture in the highest possible prominence and to help us understand it in the clearest possible way. For serious followers of Christ, the Bible is indispensable; for serious students of the Bible this edition will soon become indispensable also. To God be the glory for His Word, and to the publishers our gratitude for this splendid edition.”

“This monumental production is surely destined to be of immense help to countless users for years to come. Its scope is extraordinary, its guiding principles are rock solid, and it is remarkably readable. I know of nothing like it, and I commend it warmly.”

     – John Blanchard, internationally-known author, evangelist and Christian apologist

“The King James Version remains unsurpassed in the dignity, beauty, and influence of its Elizabethan cadences. That it is now available in a Reformed study version, packed with textual, theological, and practical helps, is an event to be celebrated. Its publication will help facilitate exposing the present generation to the greatest of all English Bibles.”

     – Terry Johnson, Senior Pastor of the Independent Presbyterian Church in Savannah, Georgia

“Even if one uses a Bible translation other than the KJV, this study Bible has so many features from a classic Reformed perspective that every family will want to have one in their home to consult and use as a spiritually enriching resource. Combined in one volume are features one would have to search for separately elsewhere. Each Bible book is introduced by a helpful survey; key Christian doctrines are explained and applied; twenty centuries of church history are reviewed; and major creeds, confessions, and catechisms are included. Every Bible chapter has notes for personal and family devotions to apply the Word for Christian living, all drawn from our rich Reformation heritage.”

Cornelis Pronk, emeritus pastor of the Free Reformed Church of Brantford, Ontario, Canada

“The publication of the Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible arrives on the scene as other translations seek to sweep the poetry and beauty of the English language aside. The KJV is a timeless translation of the most influential and life-changing book ever to be printed on the page. You hold in your hands a book that men of great faith have given their lives to see printed in the English language. Reformation Heritage Books has done a beautiful job in compiling excellent materials for this new study Bible. Specifically, this study Bible assembles key articles defining and explaining Reformed theology from the perspective of the Reformers and Puritans. An especially valuable feature is the notes included within each chapter that encourage personal and family devotions. Read the words of this Bible, praying that God will apply the truth to your heart and life.”

     – Steven J. Lawson, president, OnePassion Ministries, and professor of preaching at The Master’s Seminary

“The KJV is not my primary Bible. But my family and I will be keeping this new KJV study Bible close by. This significant accomplishment should impact individuals, pastors, households, and churches far and wide. A study Bible for the heart and mind.”

     – Mark Jones

“The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible is the most thorough study Bible available today! It can be best described by the following words: exegetical, expositional, experimental, evangelical, and exhaustive. My selection for these words becomes evident when observing the Bible’s well-ordered format and user-friendly style. There’s a careful explanation of the text that is characteristic, along with practical chapter summaries for personal and family worship and one-page subject studies interwoven throughout. However, its greatest strength lies in its constant flow of sound guidance on how to become a Christian, how to live as a Christian, and how to see our connection to the past while finding our present place and calling in Christ’s church. This study Bible is a treasure!”

     – Jerry Marcellino, Audubon Drive Bible Church, Laurel, MS, and cofounder of FIRE

“It is with great delight that I endorse this new KJV study Bible. Families and scholars alike will find a treasure trove of sound, reliable, instructive, and edifying information that, with God’s blessing, will greatly assist Bible readers in reading the Scriptures profitably. It will also make the King James Version of the Bible very accessible to our young people—and thus to a new generation of Bible readers. Reformation Heritage Books is to be highly commended for making this family-oriented study Bible available to the church of the Lord Jesus Christ.”

     – Bartel Elshout

“This new study Bible marries the antique majesty of the King James Version with the present and enduring need for a lively faith and a faithful life. Serious scholarship and sincere devotion go hand in hand through its pages. Simplicity, clarity, practicality, and appropriate brevity are the marks of its notes and articles. The devotional prompts are accessible and insightful, plain and pithy. The whole stands steadfastly in the historical stream of orthodox and experimental Christianity. The constant concern of the study aids is, under the influence of the Holy Spirit, to instruct, enliven, and encourage in truth and godliness. The entirely commendable purpose is to make the Book of Life a book that lives, and I trust that it will nurture life in many.”

     – Jeremy Walker, pastor of Maidenbower Baptist Church, Crawley, England, and author of A Portrait of Paul: Identifying a True Minister of Christ, The Brokenhearted Evangelist, and Life in Christ

“I commend wholeheartedly The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible, edited by Joel R. Beeke and others. Indeed, I am so convinced of its usefulness that I intend to get copies for my five adult children!  Its attractive layout makes it readily accessible to Bible readers who want help in understanding various texts. It also provides practical help in the struggles of the spiritual life in a fallen world. It gives you enough, but never too much. It is lucid and not verbose. It is sober and nonspeculative. What a resource it will prove for theological students and for those in the full activity of their preaching and pastoral ministries. I shall be recommending it in my classes and at ministerial conferences!”

     – Douglas F. Kelly, Richard Jordan Professor of Systematic Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary

“The King James Version is a wonderful translation of the Bible that ought to be familiar to Christians today, including those who regularly use some other version. For committed Scripture readers, the Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible provides a superb richness of information, not distracting us from the Word, but enabling us to hear it more clearly. To open these pages is as if we can read our Bibles each day with a group of valuable teachers sitting round us—a linguist, an exegete, a couple of theologians— biblical and systematic, a church historian, a pastor, and, to help us in applying Scripture and worshiping God, some of our family and friends. What a blessing! May our Lord be pleased to use this volume extensively—to the thankfulness of those who have given themselves to preparing this new tool, to the enrichment of many who read His Word, and above all to His purposes and glory.

     – Edward Donnelly, emeritus professor, Reformed Theological College, Belfast, Northern Ireland
