matthew commentary cover

“The insights of each of the authors are informative and the Reflections, which follow the literary divisions of each book, are stimulating. Student and teacher alike will find this a very helpful resource.”

– Bible Today Volume 35

“The entire set should be among the few sets of commentaries on the bookshelves of the serious student of the Scriptures.”

– James W. Cox, Review and Expositor

“The quality of both the commentary and the Reflections sections is consistently high. The New Interpreter’s Bible is an invaluable addition to the library of both academician and pastor.”

– Victor P. Hamilton, Asbury College

Purpose of The New Interpreter’s Bible Commentary Series

The New Interpreter’s Bible presents leading biblical scholarship through an in-depth commentary on the complete Bible, including the Apocrypha and Deuterocanonical books. The contributors are leading biblical scholars who bring a wealth of fresh perspectives to biblical interpretation.

The contributors are also theologically diverse, reflecting a wide range of denominational backgrounds: Roman Catholic, mainline Protestant, Jewish, and evangelical. The NIB offers detailed commentary on coherent manageable portions of text, maps, and excursuses. The Reflections sections are a crucial component of the NIB that provide thoughtful, and thought-provoking, insights on the contemporary application of the biblical text for preaching, teaching, and daily living.

Guided by scholars, pastors, and laity representing diverse traditions, academic experience, and involvement in the Church, this entirely new collection of writings is specifically prepared to meet the needs of preachers, teachers, and all students of the Bible.
