Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

J. I. Packer
"For many years I recommended the old New Bible Commentary as the best of its kind on the market. I expect to find myself saying the same of this new work that replaces it."
D. Stuart Briscoe
"The 21st century edition of the New Bible Commentary will prove as valuable to the rising generations as its predecessors did to those of us who are older."
George Carey
"IVP is to be congratulated on producing this new edition of the New Bible Commentary. I warmly commend it to all those wanting to understand the Bible in greater depth."
Alister E. McGrath
"An excellent study guide for anyone who wants to take Scripture seriously. The New Bible Commentary allows its users to read Scripture in some of the best company currently available. A book which will seriously enrich its readers' faith and understanding."
Library Journal
During its 40-year history, this work has established a reputation as a leading single-volume Bible commentary representing the evangelical perspective. However, the last edition was published nearly a quarter-century ago. Around 75 percent of the current edition is completely new, and the rest is thoroughly revised. Not only are the contents fresh, but so are most of the contributors, who represent some of the best-known evangelical scholars of the current generation. The commentaries emphasize the final form of the texts rather than the sources that may underlie them. Matters such as authorship, date, and sources are dealt with at the beginning of each commentary. Additionally, information on biblical history and the different literary genres (with the peculiar exception of prophecy) is presented in the introductory articles throughout the volume. This revised edition should be on library shelves alongside Harper's Bible Commentary and The New Jerome Biblical Commentary as a conservative complement to them. Recommended for public and academic libraries.-Craig W. Beard, Univ. of Alabama Lib., Birmingham
