The New International Commentary (NIC) combines readability with expert scholarship and is highly regarded by theologians, preachers, and Bible students. The volumes in this commentary bridge the gap between today’s world and that of Bible times.
Each commentary opens with an introduction to the biblical book and examines its background, authorship, date, purpose, structure, and theology. The authors, who are world-renowned biblical authorities, provide their own translation from the original language to form the basis of the commentary proper. Verse-by-verse comments nicely balance in-depth discussions of technical matters. What follows is a scholarly explanation of the text and its implications for today's application.
The original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts are carefully studied, and critical comments are footnoted. Plus, all grammatical, textual, and historical details are appended. The commentary proper incorporates this information in a way that aids your understanding of the text.
The contributors to the NIC aim to help you understand God’s word as clearly as possible.
