Overview

Logos Bible Software is pleased to announce the availability in electronic format of the entire New Testament Commentary set by William Hendriksen and Simon J. Kistemaker.

This award-winning series from Baker Academic is currently the only available commentary from a Reformed perspective that covers the entire New Testament.

Baker's New Testament Commentary is composed for the benefit of serious Bible students and pastors who want the insight of quality evangelical scholarship communicated with clarity. Each volume offers fresh translation, repetition of the text before each exegetical unit, verse-by-verse comments and applications, critical notes on the Greek text, and chapter summaries. Extensive bibliographies and indexes of authors, Scripture, and other ancient writings enhance the usefulness of each volume.

Begun by William Hendriksen, Baker's New Testament Commentary has earned the acclaim and respect of Reformed and evangelical scholars and pastors. Since Hendriksen's death in 1982, the series has been continued by Simon J. Kistemaker. Four of the volumes compiled by Kistemaker earned the Gold Medallion Award (Hebrews, James and 1-3 John, Acts, and 1 Corinthians). The series was completed in 2001 with the publication of Revelation. Now, for the first time, the entire twelve-volume set may be purchased by pastors, church libraries, and serious students of the Bible.

Please Note: In order to differentiate between the second person singular and the second person plural, the publisher indicated the former as follows: “you”; and the latter as follows: “y o u.” The digital edition follows this innovation.

Praise for the Print Edition

If you own the New Testament Commentaries...nothing more needs to be said. If you do not own them, you should--that is, if you are a serious student of Scripture.

The Reformed Review

The Bible student who possesses [these] commentaries can dispense with many other books.

—J.C. Maris, Reformation Quarterly

In the area of commentaries, four names which belong at the top of any man’s list find no mention at all. John Calvin, J.A. Alexander, Charles Hodge, and William Hendriksen represent a stream of scholarly, practical, and theological exposition of the New Testament from the reformation to the present. Any preacher who has worked without them should work through his same texts again with them.

—Palmer Robertson, Westminster Theological Seminary

Individual Titles

Matthew

  • Authors: William Hendriksen, Simon J. Kistemaker
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 1973
  • Pages: 1,015

This volume in the commentary series for pastors and lay persons introduces the Gospels as a literary unit and illuminates the kingdom gospel, noting Jewish and Old Testament influences on Matthew.

Mark

  • Authors: William Hendriksen, Simon J. Kistemaker
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 1975
  • Pages: 700

Detailed awareness of modern theories, ancient history, and sources make this one of the most detailed evangelical treatments of Mark available anywhere.

Luke

  • Authors: William Hendriksen, Simon J. Kistemaker
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 1975
  • Pages: 1,091

Beginning with a surprisingly interesting explanation of source theories, the introduction defends Luke's importance and accuracy against modern critics. Translation and commentary then analyzes and applies Luke's narrative.

John

  • Authors: William Hendriksen, Simon J. Kistemaker
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 1953
  • Pages: 758

Beginning with an examination of John's background, thought, and word use, Hendriksen offers a new translation, understandable comments, and other helpful notes.

In the presentation Dr. Hendriksen has shown clearly his unwavering faith in the infallibility and inspiration of the Scripture and considered all recent discoveries and research. He has moreover combined his scholarship with a simplicity of expression, making it extremely valuable for the advanced student as well as the layman. This commentary is vivacious and challenging. We highly recommend it to all conservative teachers and students.

—Professor Bert B. Siegel, Dallas Theological Seminary

Acts

  • Authors: William Hendriksen, Simon J. Kistemaker
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 1990
  • Pages: 980

Of this commentary, the author writes: "While composing the commentary on Acts, I kept in mind the needs of the pastor and the teacher of Scripture. Throughout this volume I have attempted to give an adequate description of the historical times, the cultural influences, and the geographic features mentioned by the writer of Acts. Limitations of space often forced me to restrict discussions on historical, cultural, and linguistic problems. These issues, then, I have left for further treatment in scholarly journals. My aim has been to stay with the text and to explain it as clearly as possible."

This is an excellent commentary on Acts which will provide a fruitful resource for anyone studying this pivotal book of the New Testament. It should become a standard work for many years.

—Homer A. Kent, Grace Theological Seminary

Romans

  • Authors: William Hendriksen, Simon J. Kistemaker
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 1993
  • Pages: 533

The detailed, doctrine-packed message of Paul is sorted out in a thorough, fresh translation and commentary. The author takes care to explain and interact with conflicting views.

This mature exegetical commentary should prove valuable to many, especially to students or pastors. The summaries and practical lessons at the end of each chapter should prove helpful also.

—Robert K. Farrell, LeTourneau College

  • Publication Date: 1962
  • Pages: 218

Thorough exegetical, and filled with applications.

Like these earlier publications, this volume—with its comprehensive understanding of the message of the Epistle, its detailed exegesis of difficult passages, its warm practical emphasis, its fine word studies, its solidly conservative method, its accent on Calvinistic theology—is a commentary that should occupy a place of major importance for the professional theologian as well as for the student and layman. Since Dr. Hendriksen writes in simple, concise language, and uses a modest, direct style, his books can be read profitably by a broad public.
