Sometimes we need a little help to understand ancient meanings and to line up the rich layers of history and revelation within the Bible. Written by leading scholars representing a unique diversity of denominational backgrounds, gender, and culture, the CEB Study Bible helps readers understand the biblical texts within the Bible's larger historical and literary framework. Book introductions, thousands of notes, and more than 300 articles are throughout the text, revealing cultural contexts and exploring relevant background information—while always seeking to inspire.
Several hundred leading biblical scholars were involved with the Common English Bible translation and as contributors to The CEB Study Bible. The Editorial Board includes Joel. B. Green (Fuller Theological Seminary), Seung Ai Yang (Chicago Theological Seminary), Mark J. Boda (McMaster Divinity College), Mignon R. Jacobs (Fuller Theological Seminary), Matthew R. Schlimm (University of Dubuque), and Marti J. Steussy (Christian Theological Seminary).
“The Common English Bible, likely the largest cross-denominational translation project in recent memory, unites Baptist, Catholic, Evangelical, United Methodist, and numerous other faith traditions in a joint effort to create a complete but broadly accessible Bible for the 21st century. No single translation, despite the breadth of this committee's reach, is likely to please all, but this sincere and diligent effort goes far toward the creation of a plain-English version that, without falling into folksiness or false hipsterism, can be read and understood by a range of ages, educational backgrounds, and aptitudes.” — Library Journal, March 2011.
