Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don’t discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable—but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps us with both halves of the interpretive task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into a modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it can speak powerfully today.

This is a great commentary and I recommend it in printed form. However, the Nook e-version is poorly equiped with navigational tools to easly manuver within the text. It is very difficult to use if you need to move back and forth through multiple chapters. The editors appear to have rushed this e-version to market.
