About the Author

R. Albert Mohler Jr. has been called “one of America’s most influential evangelicals” (Economist) and the “reigning intellectual of the evangelical movement” ( The president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, he writes a popular blog and a regular commentary, available at, and hosts two podcasts: The Briefing and Thinking in Public. He is the author of many books, including We Cannot Be Silent and The Prayer that Turns the World Upside Down, and has appeared in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and on programs such as NBC’s Today, ABC’s Good Morning America, and PBS NewsHour with Jim Lehrer. He and his wife, Mary, live in Louisville, Kentucky.


In my opinion, a good Study Bible includes plenty of cross-references, notes, pictures, maps and a concordance. This one has all of those. If you are looking to purchase a new Study Bible, put this one on the top of your list.

I received this book FREE from the author, publisher, distributor, or other source. My only obligation is to provide a fair and honest review.

  1. I wish I’d read your recommendation LAST year when I researched, weighed the options, and purchased a new study Bible. This new Grace & Truth Study Bible sounds better than what I chose, in spite of my efforts! Hope current Bible-shoppers see this post!
