Overview

In recent years there have been many new developments in biblical scholarship, some challenging and some affirming scriptural accounts. This authoritative reference work brings together many of the finest scholars of our day to meet the needs of the church well into the twenty-first century. This readable and accessible volume offers sixty-six solid, concise, evangelical commentaries—one on each book of the Bible. Also provided are introductory material on date, authorship, purpose, key themes and a to-the-point outline of each book. These are followed by passage-by-passage and verse-by-verse comments (based on the NIV text) that open up Scripture in light of the most recent developments in scholarship. For forty years, the New Bible Commentary has set the standard for works of its kind. Now in this completely revised fourth edition, the New Bible Commentary retains its position as the leading one-volume commentary on the whole Bible.

For many years I recommended the old New Bible Commentary as the best of its kind on the market. I expect to find myself saying the same of this new work that replaces it.

—J. I. Packer, author of Knowing God

The 21st century edition of the New Bible Commentary will prove as valuable to the rising generations as its predecessors did to those of us who are older.

—D. Stuart Briscoe, author and pastor D. Stuart Briscoe, author and pastor>

IVP is to be congratulated on producing this new edition of the New Bible Commentary. I warmly commend it to all those wanting to understand the Bible in greater depth.

—George Carey, former Archbishop of Canterbury

An excellent study guide for anyone who wants to take Scripture seriously. The New Bible Commentary allows its users to read Scripture in some of the best company currently available. A book which will seriously enrich its readers' faith and understanding.

—Alister E. McGrath, King's College, London

    This is the best, most solid, readable one-volume commentary available. This is compiled by sound biblical scholars who want the everyday believer to understand the Bible more completely. I would recommend this volume to anyone.

    This is my go-to single-volume commentary. When I am looking for a concise birds-eye view of any Biblical narrative, this commentary is heads and shoulders above the rest. Like all single-volume commentaries, its depth is limited, but it doesn't shy away from subjects that are central to the main points of the Biblical narrative.

    This is absolutely the best one-volume commentary I have seen. I have recommended it to a number of friends, primarily lay people. It is written primarily from a conservative-moderate evangelical perspective. The main value of this commentary is that it does a good job of concisely demonstrating the main flow of ideas in the text. Even though its brevity does leave questions unanswered, such is the nature of a whole-bible commentary such as this.
