This award-winning series helps you understand the original meaning of the biblical text in its original context. All the elements of traditional exegesis—in concise form—are discussed. But the authors don’t stop there—they bridge the gap between the world of the Bible and the world of today, between the original context and the contemporary context, by focusing on both the timely and timeless aspects of the text. The authors dwell on the contemporary significance of the Bible by focusing on contemporary contexts in which the Bible can be applied today. These volumes discuss the New Testament in a way that engages contemporary life and culture.

The NIV Application Commentary series doesn’t fool around. It gets right down to business, bringing this ancient and powerful Word of God into the present so that it can be heard and delivered with all the freshness of a new day, with all the immediacy of a friend’s embrace.

Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary: New Testament(4 vols.)

  • General Editor: Clinton E. Arnold
  • Publisher: Zondervan
  • Pages: 2,032

The 4-volume Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary: New Testament helps readers understand the historical and cultural background of the books of the New Testament. Brimming with lavish, full color photos and graphics, each book walks you verse-by-verse through the books of the New Testament.

To me, every Christian should own these commentaries. I say that very seriously because when you study Scripture without looking into the historical and cultural background of what was happening when each part of the Bible was written, we miss incredibly so much meaning, understanding and depth. Using these commentaries when studying Scripture turns our study into a multi-dimensional and extremely colorful study. You will have so many ‘Oh! That’s what that means!’ or ‘Now that makes sense!’ moments when studying with this commentary. I cannot imagine doing any study of the Bible without it quite honestly and couldn’t recommend a commentary of this type any higher.

—Dan Kimball, pastor and author of They Like Jesus but Not the Church

Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary: Old Testament (5 vols.)

  • General Editor: John H. Walton

Here readers find the premier commentary set for connecting with the historical and cultural context of the Old Testament. It contains over 2,000 photographs, passage-by-passage commentary on the Old Testament, analysis of Near Eastern literature, and more.

As a pastor, I am certain that the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary: Old Testament is a deeply valuable tool for ministry. With rock-solid scholarship, relevant commentary, and gripping visual illustrations, this will be a great tool for believers for years to come.

—Kevin G. Harney, pastor and author of Organic Outreach for Ordinary People

Effective First-Person Biblical Preaching

  • Author: J. Kent Edwards
  • Publisher: Zondervan
  • Publication Date: 2005
  • Pages: 192

A large portion of the Bible is narrative. This fact, coupled with our culture’s fascination with story (as evidenced by its ever-increasing consumption of television, movies, and DVDs), presents the preacher with a tremendous opportunity to communicate powerful, life-changing truth in a way that is biblically honoring and culturally relevant. In first-person biblical preaching, the preacher enters into the story via one of the characters, bringing the biblical text to life in the imaginations of the congregation. After making a case for this type of sermon, Kent Edwards takes the reader step-by-step through the process of crafting a dynamic first-person sermon that is faithful to the text. Along the way, he gives numerous examples, answers practical questions, and identifies pitfalls to avoid. He addresses both the exegetical task and the homiletical task as they relate to this approach.

Not only details the means of preparation for first-person sermons, but for narrative sermons of every description.

The Power of Multisensory Preaching and Teaching

  • Author: Rick Blackwood
  • Publisher: Zondervan
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 208

Most preaching and teaching in the church engages only one of the senses—hearing. In The Power of Multisensory Preaching and Teaching, Rick Blackwood shows how recognizing and engaging the multiple senses of the congregation can lead to greater impact.

We have all heard the statistics that listeners retain a lot more of what we are saying if we can help them to do more than simply hear it. Believing the statistics to be true, we have dabbled with object lessons, drama, and PowerPoint, all in the effort to utilize a broader range of sensory appeal. Finally, now we have a resource that confirms what we have long suspected. Rich Blackwood not only gives us the research, but he gives us a method that is practical, sustainable, and steeped in expository conviction. This is a book for preachers that are already good at what they do, increasing their communication quotient so as to deepen their listener’s engagement with the Word.

—Kenton C. Anderson, author of Choosing to Preach
