New KJV Study Bible Coming in 2014

Last month Joel Beeke announced that Reformation Heritage Books plans to publish the "KJV Study Bible for Personal and Family Worship" in 2014. This got me excited as I can not think off the top of my head of any other modern KJV Study Bibles out there that is written from a reformed perspective. Here is an excerpt taken from the advertisement:

The planned publication date for this quality Study Bible is the Fall of 2014. Dr. Joel R. Beeke will serve as the General Editor, Dr. Michael Barrett as Old Testament Editor, and Dr. Jerry Bilkes as New Testament Editor. The following contributors are committed to write on various Bible books: Dr. Mark Allison, Rev. Geoff Banister, Dr. Charles Barrett, Dr. Michael Barrett, Dr. Joel Beeke, Dr. Jerry Bilkes, Rev. John Greer, Rev. Pooyan Mehrshahi, Rev. Andrew McIntosh, Dr. John McKnight, Rev. Alan J. Macgregor, Rev. Gerald Procee, Rev. Maurice Roberts, Rev. David Silversides, Rev. John Thackway, and Rev. Malcolm Watts. All of these men are Reformed in their theology, appreciate the experiential tradition of Reformed theology, and use the KJV in their own pulpit and teaching ministries.

If you want to see the advertisement in its entirety click here. Please pray for this project as it will be an enormous undertaking involving a substantial amount of time, money, and resources....but oh what a blessing this will be for those who use the King James Version of the Bible. Lord willing we will see the first of these new study Bibles become available in about two years.
