NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 18, 2014) – B&H Publishing Group has announced their publishing plan for the Rainbow Study Bible from 2014, 2015 and beyond. The Rainbow Study Bible was acquired by B&H in 2013 from Standard Publishing Group and the hope has been for the Holman Bible Publishing brand to continue its success. Previous to this acquisition, B&H was a distribution partner with Standard Publishing and helped to sell over three million Rainbow Study Bibles since its creation in the 1980s. Holman Bible Publisher Jeremy Howard is honored to focus on The Rainbow Study Bible, “We believe in The Rainbow Study Bible and its usefulness in the world today. We live in a visual-learning era where this beautiful Bible is needed more than ever for someone wanting to dig deeper into the word of God.” In the next few years, B&H will be releasing dozens of new styles as part of The Rainbow Study Bible. “Launching nationwide in September 2014, B&H will be releasing the Holman Rainbow Study Bible KJV Edition with an all new page layout which now includes the unique color-code key across every single spread serving as a quick reference tool helping you to never forget the twelve major themes throughout the Bible.” Available for retail stores everywhere will be a floor display in early spring 2015 that will feature the NIV edition (February 2015) along with the KJV edition. Following these releases will be a Spanish translation, the RVR 1960 edition (April 2015). In all there will be over 30 available format editions releasing in the next twelve months. B&H President Selma Wilson added, “B&H is grateful to be a steward of this resource and look forward to growing and managing the Rainbow Study Bible for many years to come.” The Rainbow Study Bible has a unique color-coding system that allows readers to quickly and easily identify twelve major themes of Scripture throughout the text: God, discipleship, love, faith, sin, evil, salvation, family, outreach, commandments, history, and prophecy. The system also underlines all words directly spoken by God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. A full video description can be viewed here.
