For 40 years, the New Bible Commentary has set the standard for works of its kind. Now in this completely revised fourth edition (including over 80% new and updated material), the New Bible Commentary is positioned to maintain its standing as the leading one-volume commentary on the whole Bible well into the 21st century.

This readable and accessible volume brings together many of the finest scholars of our day to meet the needs of students, teachers and Bible readers. The 21st-century edition of the New Bible Commentary offers 66 solid, concise, evangelical commentaries--one on each book of the Bible. These detailed (passage-by-passage or verse-by-verse) commentaries, based on the NIV text, are accompanied by introductory material on date, authorship, purpose, key themes, outlines and discussions of recent developments in biblical scholarship. In addition seven articles overview biblical history and types of biblical literature, including the Pentateuch, poetry, the Gospels, the Epistles, and the Apocrypha and other apocalyptic writings.

Completely updated for a new generation of readers, the new New Bible Commentary will be a powerful aid for all who want to understand the foundational book of the Christian faith.

"For many years I recommended the old New Bible Commentary as the best of its kind on the market. I expect to find myself saying the same of this new work that replaces it."

J. I. Packer, author of Knowing God

"The 21st century edition of the New Bible Commentary will prove as valuable to the rising generations as its predecessors did to those of us who are older."

D. Stuart Briscoe, author and pastor D. Stuart Briscoe, author and pastor

"IVP is to be congratulated on producing this new edition of the New Bible Commentary. I warmly commend it to all those wanting to understand the Bible in greater depth."

George Carey, former Archbishop of Canterbury

"An excellent study guide for anyone who wants to take Scripture seriously. The New Bible Commentary allows its users to read Scripture in some of the best company currently available. A book which will seriously enrich its readers' faith and understanding."

Alister E. McGrath, King's College, London
