NIV Commentary for the Entire Bible

The NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC) series shows you how to bring the Word’s ancient message into our postmodern context. It explains what the Bible meant and how it speaks so powerfully today. It treats all the elements of traditional exegesis, and its authors bridge the gap between the Bible’s world and the world of today, between the original context and the contemporary context, by focusing on both the timely and the timeless aspects of the text.

Each NIVAC volume discusses the Bible in a way that engages contemporary life and culture. Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they often leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. 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 bring both halves of the interpretive task together. The tools, ideas, and insights contained in this bundle will help you study and understand any portion of God’s Word and communicate it in the context of contemporary culture. The exegetical, literary, and grammatical summaries will benefit anyone wanting to dig deeper into God’s Word.

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.

Eugene H. Peterson, professor emeritus of spiritual theology, Regent College

It is encouraging to find a commentary that is not only biblically trustworthy but also contemporary in its application. The NIV Application Commentary will prove to be a helpful tool in the pastor’s sermon preparation. I use it and recommend it.

Charles F. Stanley, founder and president, In Touch Ministries

The NIV Application Commentary series promises to be of very great service to all who preach and teach the Word of God.

J. I. Packer,, Board of Governors’ Professor of Theology, Regent College

This series promises to become an indispensable tool for every pastor and teacher who seeks to make the Bible’s timeless message speak to this generation.

—Billy Graham, American evangelist

The NIV Application Commentary is an outstanding resource for pastors and anyone else who is serious about developing “doers of the Word.”

Rick Warren, pastor, Saddleback Valley Community Church

If you want to avoid hanging applicational elephants from interpretive threads, then the NIV Application Commentary is for you! This series excels at both original meaning and contemporary significance. I support it one hundred percent.

Howard G. Hendricks, professor, Dallas Theological Seminary

The NIV Application Commentary will be a great help for leaders who want to understand what the Bible means, how it applies, and what they should do in response.

Stuart Briscoe, pastor, Elmbrook Church

This is the pulpit commentary for the twenty-first century.

—George K. Brushaber, former president, Bethel College and Seminary

The NIV Application Commentary builds bridges that make the Bible come alive with meaning for contemporary life.

Warren W. Wiersbe, general director, Back to the Bible

The NIV Application Commentary meets the urgent need for an exhaustive and authoritative commentary based on the New International Version. This series will soon be found in libraries and studies throughout the evangelical community.

—D. James Kennedy, founder, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church

The NIV Application Commentary series helps pastors and other Bible teachers with one of the most neglected elements in good preaching—accurate, useful application. Most commentaries tell you a few things that are helpful and much that you do not need to know. By dealing with the original meaning and contemporary significance of each passage, the NIV Application Commentary series promises to be helpful all the way around.

James Montgomery Boice, former pastor, Tenth Presbyterian Church

Here, at last, is a commentary that makes the proper circuit from the biblical world to Main Street. The NIV Application Commentary is a magnificent gift to the church!

R. Kent Hughes, senior pastor emeritus, College Church, Wheaton, IL

This series dares to go where few scholars have gone before—into the real world of biblical application faced by pastors and teachers every day. This is everything a good commentary series should be.

Leith Anderson, president, National Association of Evangelicals

Here at last is a commentary which is not only academically well informed but which helps the contemporary reader hear God’s Word and consider its implications: scholarship in the service of the Church.

—Arthur Rowe, tutor in New Testament and world religions, Spurgeon’s College

  1. Charles C.G. Miller
    I have been in a Men's Bible Study for over 40 years. We have almost always studied the Bible itself rather than a subject or idea. We have most often used Barclay or Wiersbe which are excellent materials. Recently, I convinced the group to try the New International Version Application Commentary. I think this might have been written as a reference book but we have found it to be perfect for our studies. Our group meets one morning each week for two hours. We start with a cold cereal breakfast with fellowship, followed by study for almost an hour and then prayer. Daniel took us 18 months and we are halfway through Isaiah after 30 months. This is not a quick read or a shallow study. After studying a book I don't expect to feel the need to repeat the same book for 10 years. My adult Sunday School class studies John for 6 weeks from some author almost every year but I never feel we do it justice. This series is often useful as a typical commentary reference book when looking for a clear understanding of a passage or story from Scripture. I recommend the NIVAP.

    Necessary set for every pastor and teacher. Theologically profound and really practical. A real application commentary.
  3. Randy



    The value of this set, is that it often exposes the modern-day sophistry and relativism by which people try to set-aside the word of God for their own traditions.
