How can you apply what you learned about Jerusalem, Ephesus, or Corinth to our present day needs? How can you take a message originally spoken in Greek and Hebrew and Aramaic and communicate it clearly in our own language? How can you take the eternal truths originally spoken in a different time and culture and apply them to the similar-yet-different needs of our culture? The NIV Application Commentary shows readers how to bring an ancient message into our postmodern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant, but also how it speaks powerfully today.

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. The NIV Application Commentary discusses the Bible in a way that engages contemporary life and culture.

The NIV Application Commentary is unique. Most commentaries help us make the journey from the twentieth century back to the first century. But they 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 helps brings both parts of the interpretive task together. The primary goal of the NIV Application Commentary is to help you with the difficult—but vital!—task of bringing an ancient message into our postmodern context. The series not only focuses on application as a finished product, but also helps you through the process of moving from the original meaning of a passage to its contemporary significance.

This collection contains only the New Testament commentaries. The commentaries on the Old Testament are available separately in the NIV Application Commentary: Old Testament.

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

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, 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

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 of Saddleback Valley Community Church and author of Purpose Driven Life

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, 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, 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

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.

—Dr. James Kennedy, Ph. D. Senior Minister, 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.

Dr. James Montgomery Boice, 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, pastor, College Church, Wheaton, Illinois

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, pastor, Wooddale Church

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, Spurgeon’s College

    As I understand it, the fundamental premise of this series, is that there's a huge gap between what the Bible meant to the original readers, and what it means for us today. This allows the authors to introduce a fine way of setting aside the word of God, for the sake of today's worldly culture and traditions. As an example, see my review of the pastoral epistles volume: https://faithlife.com/reviews/259142.

    I am an experienced lay Bible study teacher for adults. I am so tired of working with books with 10 DVD lessons or 10 chapters in a $5 book. I need more meat in my sandwich. The NIVAC is not technical and does not use Greek or Hebrew without explaining what it means. It is not a "Sermon in a box" commentary for pastors. It is a really good explanation of the value of each book and why we should study it..Each NIVAC book divides the Biblical book into practical sections and then 4 subsections for each sections. 1. The NIV text. 2. The "Original Meaning." 3. "Bridging Contexts" to help us understand what is in the section. 4. "Contemporary Significance" to help us understand the message for today. I love the Word Biblical Commentary, or Barclay or Wiersbe; but NIVAC is my go to series whether I am looking for a book for a teacher or a book for the whole class to buy.
