Looking for a good study Bible?  Here are some good options available:

The Lutheran Study Bible is  published by Concordia Publishing House.  The Bible Translation is the English Standard Version (ESV), which is the newest modern translation available.   This study Bible can also be purchased through and Christian Book Distributors.

The Best One Volume Commentary we are now utilizing and promoting is the Africa Bible Commentary, produced by 70 African scholars.  It is readily available from Amazon, and is straightforward, honest, direct, and remarkably parallels the American Society in terms of it's own issues, despite that it often directs commentary toward the African nations themselves. 

The Concordia Self Study Bible, published by Concordia Publishing House, using the 1984 New International Version (NIV) which is the most readable translation still today.  In 2017, the original NIV (usually notated as "NIV 1984") is becoming harder to find, as it is officially out of print, despite that some copies are still available for purchase.  The current NIV (with a copyright including 2011) is not as good in terms of translation from the original Biblical languages of Greek and Hebrew.  An internet search for this Study Bible should yield used copies available.

The Archeological Study Bible, published by Zondervan, uses the 1984 NIV translation.  See comment above on the NIV.  This Bible can be most easily purchased through and Christian Book Distributors.  Because the NIV1984 is out of print, this one is also harder to find, and the KJV version is still readily available.  It has abundant historical and geographic note pages to place each event in its' geographic and historical setting.

There are many other good study Bibles available.  The best translations for modern english are either the NIV '84 or the ESV.
