HarperCollins Study Bible Notes

For The Bible Study App

Publisher: HarperCollins


Publisher: HarperCollins

The landmark HarperCollins Study Bible Notes are now available for your mobile device! Completely revised and updated by leading Biblical scholars, this classic reference work includes new introductions and notes, diagrams, charts and maps––25% revised or new material.

With the guidance of the Society of Biblical Literature, an organization of the best Biblical scholars world wide, and the Dean of Yale Divinity School, Harold Attridge, to oversee the Study Bible's updating and revision, the fundamental strengths of the first HCSB remain:

  • up–to–date introductions to the Biblical books, based on the latest critical scholarship, by leading experts in the field
  • concise notes, clearly explaining names, dates, places, obscure terms, and other difficulties in reading the Biblical text
  • careful analysis of the structure of Biblical books
  • abundant maps, tables, and charts to enable the reader to understand the context of the Bible, and to see the relationship among its parts

But, in this new revised edition, every introduction, essay, map, illustration and explanatory note has been reviewed and updated, and new material added. For instance, there are newly commissioned introductory essays on

  • the archaeology of ancient Israel and the New Testament world
  • the religion of ancient Israel
  • the social and historical context of each book of the Bible
  • Biblical interpretation

Of special interest are:

  • the literary history of the Pentateuch
  • more references to ancient non–Biblical sources which seem to parallel books in the Bible
  • more comprehensive attention to the interrelationship of Old and New Testaments

Study notes are included for the Old Testament, the New Testament, and the Apocryphal books.

NOTE: The HarperCollins Study Bible Notes product only contains the HarperCollins Study Bible Notes. The NRSV Bible text can be purchased separately here. The NRSV Bible text (or the Bible translation of your choice) uses the Bible Study App’s powerful Resource Guide feature to link these two resources.

More 6.0 Information

Will 6.0 Be Available For My Device?
We are currently working on the 6.0 update for our Mac app. Please note that 6.0 will only be available to the Mac App Store for those running Mac OS X Yosemite or later.

When Is The 6.0 Update Expected?
The 6.0 update is our top priority. We are working hard to get the update out as soon as we can. This is a major update to our core technology that requires us to rework major sections of the app. It could still be several months before we have fully rolled out 6.0 to all platforms.
