The NIV Application Commentary: New Testament is unlike any other commentary series. Not content to simply focus on application of the biblical text, this series seeks to actually work through the process of moving from the original meaning of the text towards it contemporary significance. It would be a mistake to see the NIV Application Commentary as devotional literature. The ultimate goal of this series may be application, but that doesn’t stop these commentaries from being credible reference material.
The Application Commentary: New Testament series includes insights from a host of such luminaries as Darrell Bock, Douglas J. Moo, Craig Blomberg, and Craig Keener. Each author in the NIV Application Commentary breaks their exegesis into three sections:
- Original Meaning: This section helps you grasp the author’s intended meaning by looking at the biblical passage’s historical, literary, and cultural context.
- Bridging Contexts: In this section, the commentary wrestles with discerning the historical aspects of the passage which have direct twenty-first century correlations—and those which do not. This section focuses on drawing out both explicit and implicit parallels.
- Contemporary Significance: By looking at contemporary issues and contexts, the authors of the NIV Application Commentaries confront modern readers with ideas and principles as powerful and challenging as the Scriptures would have been to its original audience.
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
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 promises to be of very great service to all who preach and teach the Word of God.
