Zondervan announced today that the MacArthur Study Bible notes will be available with the new NIV translation of the scripture beginning in the Fall of 2013. In Zondervan’s press release, John MacArthur says:
The New International Version is read and studied by more English-speaking believers than any other modern translation of Scripture. I’m delighted that the MacArthur Study Bible notes will now be easily accessible to NIV readers. My prayer is that these insights and explanations, together with the acclaimed readability of the translation, will help illuminate the true meaning and unleash the divine power of Scripture for NIV readers.
The MacArthur Study Bible has been available with a variety of translations over the years (NKJV, NASB, ESV), but to my knowledge this is the first time it will appear with a translation that is not “essentially literal” or “formally equivalent.” Read the rest of the press release here.
