Pastors with a passion for sound exposition and scholars with a heart for pastoral leadership have joined forces to produce this exciting commentary series! Perfect for sermon preparation, leading small groups, or for personal Bible study, each volume includes passage-by-passage commentary based on the NIV plus background information on authorship, setting, theme, and various interpretive issues.
With twenty volumes covering the entire New Testament, this accessible series focuses on the vital message of Scripture for today's church, while bottom-of-the-page notes link to scholarly research and encourage further reading. Preachers, teachers, students, and other Christians who want to dig deep into the heart of the New Testament will find an indispensable companion in the IVP New Testament Commentary Series.
Two volumes (James and 1 Peter) have won Christianity Today Critics' Choice Awards!
