Praise for the Print Edition
[McKnight’s commentary on Galatians] takes exegesis seriously and still has space left for considerations of what the text is saying in today’s world.
—John Wilderspin, First Lobo Baptist Church, Lobo, Ontario
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.
—James Kennedy, senior minister, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church
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, pastor, First Baptist Church of Atlanta
