Overview

Since a commentary is a fundamental tool for the expositor or teacher who seeks to interpret and apply Scripture in the church or classroom, the NAC focuses on communicating the theological structure and content of each biblical book. The writers seek to illuminate both the historical meaning and contemporary significance of Holy Scripture.

In its attempt to make a unique contribution to the Christian community, the NAC focuses on two concerns. First, the commentary emphasizes how each section of a book fits together so that the reader becomes aware of the theological unity of each book and of Scripture as a whole. The writers, however, remain aware of the Bible’s inherently rich variety. Second, the NAC is produced with the conviction that the Bible primarily belongs to the church. We believe that scholarship and the academy provide an indispensable foundation for biblical understanding and the service of Christ, but the editors and authors of this series have attempted to communicate the findings of their research in a manner that will build up the whole body of Christ. Thus, the commentary concentrates on theological exegesis, while providing practical, applicable exposition.

Examining the words of admonition, rebuke, hope and faith within Isaiah and relating those themes to today, Gary V. Smith offers this commentary on the first half of Isaiah. Using the text, he encourages believers today as individuals and as a community to humble themselves, and fully trust in God. Smith reflects a high regard for scriptural integrity, and takes into account current scholarship while emphasizing Isaiah's overall unity.

  • Commentary based on the NIV
  • Sound scholarly methodology reflecting capable research in the original languages
  • Interpretation emphasizing the theological unity of each book and Scripture as a whole

The New American Commentary is a user-friendly tool for advanced Bible study which fills an important need for pastors, students, and laity alike. It is an exciting combination of exegetical insight, scholarly depth and spiritual insight, and written to be read. An important new resource for serious students of the Bible. The New American Commentary belongs on every pastor's shelf and in every church library.

—David E. Aune, Loyola University

The New American Commentary sets the standard for evangelical biblical scholarship. It is perhaps the most helpful commentary series designed for the work of the pastor and preacher. An accessible approach to the biblical text is backed up with solid biblical scholarship. Not only Southern Baptists but all evangelicals should greet this commentary series with great enthusiasm. It has earned their trust.

—Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
