Here, at last, is a commentary for readers who are not satisfied with the brevity of the standard one-volume commentaries but do not need a large, expensive set of commentaries. The Zondervan NIV Bible Commentary is an abridgment of the award-winning Expositor's Bible Commentary. Its retains all the essential information and insights of the original twelve-volume set, without cumbersome technical details. The contributors represent the best in evangelical scholarship from a wide range of denominations. Charts, maps, tables, and pictures have been added to make this two-volume set a reference work that is truly useful for all readers of the Bible. Another useful feature is the insertion of Goodrick / Kohlenberger numbers wherever a Hebrew or Greek word is discussed in some detail; an index to these discussions is found at the end of each volume.
