Voted one of Christianity Today's 1995 Books of the Year!
For 40 years, the New Bible Commentary
has set the standard for works of its kind. Now in this completely revised fourth edition (including over 80% new and updated material), the New Bible Commentary
is positioned to maintain its standing as the leading one-volume commentary on the whole Bible well into the 21st century.
This readable and accessible volume brings together many of the finest scholars of our day to meet the needs of students, teachers, and Bible readers. The 21st-century edition of the New Bible Commentary
offers 66 solid, concise, evangelical commentaries - one on each book of the Bible. These detailed (passage-by-passage or verse-by-verse) commentaries, based on the NIV
text, are accompanied by introductory material on date, authorship, purpose, key themes, outlines, and discussions of recent developments in biblical scholarship. In addition, seven articles overview biblical history and types of biblical literature, including the Pentateuch, poetry, the Gospels, the Epistles, and the Apocrypha, and other apocalyptic writings.
Completely updated for a new generation of readers, the new New Bible Commentary
will be a powerful aid for all who want to understand the foundational book of the Christian faith.
