The New International Commentary Is Shipping Next Week

The New International Commentary on the Old and New Testament

The New International Commentary—commonly known as NICOT and NICNT—is one of the most respected commentary series published in the evangelical Protestant tradition. It is thoroughly researched and abreast of modern biblical scholarship, yet at the same time loyal to Scripture as the infallible Word of God.

Many of the volumes in this series have become classic works of evangelical biblical scholarship—in particular F. F. Bruce’s commentary on Acts, Douglas Moo’s commentary on Romans, Gordon Fee’s commentary on 1 Corinthians, Bruce K. Waltke’s commentary on Proverbs, and Leon Morris’s commentary on John. In fact, Christianity Today called Morris’s commentary on John “the best commentary on any book of the Bible by an evangelical in recent decades.”

The New International Commentary—the combined NICOT and NICNT—has been, without a doubt, our best-selling and most popular Pre-Pub. In fact, back when we put it on Pre-Pub a few months ago, we received enough pre-orders in just 13 hours to move the project into production. And the orders haven’t stopped.

In the meantime, we have been hard at work on this massive project. We have converted tens of thousands of pages of print material into electronic text, put in extra hours, and have done everything possible to get the New International Commentary into the hands of our users as fast as possible.

We’re now pleased to announce that we plan to ship the New International Commentary in just a few days. Our Electronic Text Development department is putting the finishing touches on the series this afternoon, and we’ll spend the rest of this week and the early part of next week testing and replicating. We plan to begin processing orders by the end of next week.

What does this mean for you? If you haven’t yet ordered, then this is your last chance to do so and still get the Pre-Pub discount. After we ship, the Pre-Pub price disappears. If you want the lowest price on the New International Commentary, make sure you pre-order now.

With the Logos Bible Software edition, all 23,832 pages of material in all 40 volumes of the New International Commentary will integrate seamlessly with the rest of your digital library—appearing in Passage Guides, search results, and custom reports. That makes this edition even more valuable for research projects or preparing for next Sunday’s sermon.

Remember, if you haven’t ordered yet, you still have one last chance to do so. Place your pre-order now to lock in the lowest price.

  1. Have you made NICOT and NICNT T-Shirts for this project like the ones you made for The Anchor Yale Bible project? And may I have one? :D Please?

    caaaaaann’t wait!!!!!

  3. Why is the pre-pub price still much dearer than one can buy the complete set of books? For instance for $999 at christianbooks.com http://www.christianbook.com/Christian/Books/product?event=AFF&item_code=WW&item_no=92988&netp_id=486422&p=1028305&view=details

  4. Hi Steve, first let me say I would love to have this cheaper so I could afford it. But, comparing CBD paper to Logos electronic is not apples to apples. If you really think you can get the same value from 40 volumes of paper vs. the capabilites found in Logos, then definately go with the CBD option.

  5. I noticed that last week also. I was surprised and thought it curious that the PrePub price was equal to the price of the print version of the entire commentary set on christianbook.com.
    I thought one of the selling points of having the electronic version (and especially of PrePub pricing) of a set of commentaries is that it is cheaper than purchasing the print version of the same commentary set.
    So can you please consider a lower PrePub price? I’m sure with so much enthusiasm pushing this project into production in just 13 hours of posting this PrePub that you have way more than enough pledging PrePub-ers to cover the cost of the project.
    If you can’t lower the cost for everyone, can you at least lower the PrePub price for Me and Steve? :D

  6. SEVEN more days!….

  9. I’m sure this has been asked before, but is there anyway to purchase individual volumes from these sets? I’m keen on some but not so keen on other volumes.
    Thanks
    D

  13. Kent Hendricks says:

    Darryl,
    At this time (and for the foreseeable future), the NICOT/NICNT is only available as a 40-volume set.

  14. Kent Hendricks says:

    Jonely,
    The ship date has been pushed back to Friday so we could take care of some last minute issues.

  15. Okay…TWO more days!…

  16. LIVE! LIVE! LIVE! LIVE!…

  17. Hi there, is it going live today? Will our prepub orders be processed so that we can download and read the commentary today?
    Thanks a lot.

  18. YAY!!! Now I gotta pay for it…

  19. Tudor Lance says:

    Are you going to make this avaialble as a separate Old Testemnt and New Testament sets? The two together is a bit steep even though I am drooling to include it in my library, even breaking up the cost goes outside of my resources.

  20. Kent Hendricks says:

    Tudor,
    At this time, the New International Commentary is only available as a single set.
    You may want to opt for a payment plan to spread the cost out over the next 12 months. This is also a great way to apply your book budget to the NIC. Simply select payment plan at checkout.
