Coming out on August 25 is the brand new NIV Zondervan Study Bible  with Dr. D. A. Carson serving as the general editor.  This new study Bible is not an updated  or revised NIV Study Bible. This is an entirely new study Bible. Carson is the research professor at Trinity International University where he also teaches New Testament.  He's a prolific writer and a gifted scholar in the evangelical church.
