Greg Gilbert on the new »ESV Story of Redemption Bible«

  • Save

Greg Gilbert – the author of the Story of Redemption commentary – gave an interview to Zach Barnhart for GCD. At one point he talked about the approach and design of the Bible:

»I actually didn’t have anything to do with the design, so I feel like I can be over-the-top in my praise of it. . . I’ve never seen anything quite like it. The design team mentioned at one point that they wanted to give it the feel of a “one-volume Lord of the Rings,” and I think they did it. The gold-leaf, intricate designs, maps, graphs, and charts—not to mention the 66 circular medallions for each book of the Bible—really make you feel like you’re setting off on an epic journey.

This Bible doesn’t so much have the feel of the desk and study. It has the feel of adventure. “You step into the Road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to!”«
