The Mission of God Study Bible

Broadman & Holman are publishing what they are calling The Mission of God Study Bible. Here’s some of the blurb:
The Mission of God Study Bible encourages followers of Jesus Christ to see their everyday life from God’s perspective and have His heart for people. It’s a reminder that we live around people in desperate need of redemption and reconciliation with God, which can only be found in Jesus. The mission of God has never been just for specialists; it is for all believers to live out through their daily lives and by sharing the good news of what God has done through the death and resurrection of His Son Jesus. Wherever you are, you are on mission.’
Using the text of the Holman Christian Standard Bible, the biblical text is supplemented with articles and brief commentary – in Study Bible fashion – along with ‘letters to the church’ from elder statesmen, including Billy Graham, Erwin Lutzer, and R.C. Sproul.
The Bible also includes QR codes which lead to websites with further input.
There are more details here, including a video trailer.
One of the editors, Ed Stetzer, has been posting about the Bible on his blog (e.g., here).
