New International Biblical Commentary

For example, Robert Mounce wrote the Matthew commentary in the GNC, NIBC, and the UBCS series. These editions have different publishers, different cover designs, and belong to series with different names, but the content in each book is the same. [1]

The New International Biblical Commentary series offers the best of contemporary scholarship in a format that both general readers and serious students can use with profit.

Based on the widely used New International Version translation, the NIBC presents careful section-by-section exposition with key terms and phrases highlighted and all Hebrew transliterated.

A separate section of notes at the close of each chapter provides additional textual and technical comments.

Each commentary also includes a selected bibliography as well as Scripture and subject indexes.

Series Reviews

“The New International Biblical Commentary is an important new series which happily strikes the balance between the detailed technical commentary . . . and the popular level commentary.” — Max Turner

“The NIBC has been written by internationally respected experts in Biblical Studies. Scholarly arguments are carefully analyzed and presented in a way that anyone concerned to gain a deeper understanding of the New Testament will find both accessible and helpful. Christians of many different traditions will welcome this series as a valuable resource that will promote better understanding of the Bible and its message.” — John W. Drane, University of Stirling
