The New International Commentary on the Old and New Testament Upgrade adds valuable content to the already popular New International Commentary on the Old and New Testament.
If you have been interested in the 40-volume NICOT/NICNT but have been wary of the investment, the NICOT/NICNT upgrade provides a cost-efficient way to get a taste of the entire series.
This upgrade includes:
1. The Book of Hosea by J. Andrew Dearman
“Hosea’s complexities begin with translation and extend to its rich use of imagery. Andrew Dearman brings his considerable skills as a Hebraist and historian as well as his expert literary and theological sensitivities to bear on the interpretation of this important book. Serious engagement with the book of Hosea now starts with Dearman’s commentary.”—Tremper Longman III, Robert H. Gundry professor of biblical studies, Westmont College
2. The Gospel of John by J. Ramsey Michaels
“This new commentary—part of Eerdmans’s acclaimed NICNT series—gives primary attention to John’s gospel in its present form rather than the sources or traditions behind it. J. Ramsey Michaels assumes that the John who authored the book is someone very close to Jesus and, therefore, that the gospel is a testimony to events that actually happened in the life of Jesus. Yet Michaels does not ignore the literary character of the gospel of John or its theological contribution to the larger Christian community from its own time to the present day. Through a detailed verse-by-verse commentary, Michaels reveals how the gospel of ‘the disciple whom Jesus loved’ is a unified composition, intertwined with the synoptics, yet drawing on material none of them cover.”—D. A. Carson, research professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
3. The Epistle to the Hebrews by Gareth Lee Cockerill
“It is no easy task to write a replacement for the work of such a scholar as F. F. Bruce on so demanding a book as Hebrews, but Cockerill amply justifies the trust placed in him by the editor of this series. In particular the attention that Cockerill pays to the author’s use of the Old Testament and to the book’s structure takes readers beyond Bruce’s work. The exposition of the letter is profound and practical and yet so clearly presented that preachers will be particularly grateful for this volume.”—I. Howard Marshall, professor emeritus of New Testament exegesis and honorary research professor at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland
4. The Letter of James by Scot McKnight
“McKnight has produced a readable and carefully organized commentary packed full of concrete insights. He brilliantly blends the best thoughts of earlier scholarship with innovative thinking, and remains sensitive throughout to both ancient context and his modern audience.”—Craig S. Keener, professor of New Testament, Asbury Theological Seminary
The NICOT/NICNT upgrade offers an overview to the whole series with a commentary on a minor prophet, a gospel, and two epistles. Acquaint yourself with the scholarship this commentary series is known for, but be warned: it will only whet your appetite for more!
