The apostle Paul summed up his whole ministry as existing "to testify to the gospel of the grace of God" (Acts 20:24). That single-minded goal is the heartbeat of the ESV Gospel Transformation Bible. Produced out of the conviction that the Bible is a unified message of God's grace culminating in Jesus, it is a significant new tool to help readers see Christ in all of Scripture, and grace for all of life.
The Gospel Transformation Bible features all-new book introductions and gospel-illuminating notes written by a team of over 50 outstanding pastors and scholars. This specially prepared material outlines passage-by-passage God's redemptive purposes of grace that echo all through Scripture and culminate in Christ. The notes not only explain but also apply the text in a grace-centered way. Focusing on heart transformation rather than mere behavior modification, their points of application emphasize the Hows and Whys of practical application to daily living--in short, how the gospel transforms us from the inside out.
The Gospel Transformation Bible will equip both new and seasoned believers with a gospel-centered reading of Scripture, enabling God's people to see that the message of the Bible is a unified one--"to testify to the gospel of the grace of God."
