Series Reviews

“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 doesn’t fool around. It gets right down to business, bringing this ancient and powerful Word of God into the present so that it can be heard and delivered with all the freshness of a new day, with all the immediacy of a friend’s embrace.”
— Eugene H. Peterson

“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

The NIVAC Series

Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible.

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 Series helps bring both halves of the interpretive task together.

This unique, award-winning series 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.
