If your Bible study needs call for more than a brief, one-volume commentary but less than a large, expensive set, the Zondervan NIV Bible Commentary is indispensable. An abridgement of the critically acclaimed Expositor's Bible Commentary, this Gold Medallion Award-winning resource gives you in two volumes all the essential information and practical insights of the original twelve-volume set while trimming off cumbersome technical details.
Fifty-five international contributors represent the best in evangelical scholarship from a wide range of denominations. Their penetrating, verse-by-verse expositions will broaden your understanding of God's Word. The use of Goodrick/Kohlenberger numbers lets you expand on their discussions of Greek and Hebrew words by cross-referencing the Zondervan NIV Exhaustive Concordance. And 250 in-text charts, maps, tables, and pictures lend clarity and visual impact to the text.
For scholarliness, usefulness, convenience, and excellence in design, the Zondervan NIV Bible Commentary shines. It is one member of your core reference library that you'll reach for often for the depth it brings to your Bible studies.

This set is worth every penny that I paid for it! If you are looking for a commentary that has explanations on just about every verse in the Bible, then do not look any further as this set of books has that and more! You get background information, dates, timelines, maps, and so much more on each book in the Bible. When scholars disagree on verses, these books give you the disagreements and then it explains how they came up with their conclusion. Nothing I have compares to these books. Don't look at the price as being expensive because we spend more on other things that will not give us insight into getting closer to God! You will not regret buying this set! Thank God I was led to buy them!
