1 Peter [NIVAC] is no exception to this rule. McKnight does an excellent job of illuminating the rich and troubled circumstances of the original reader's while also skillfully Peter's extensive moral exhortations in light of the original recipients' context. McKnight, who also accepts the so-called "new perspective" on Paul, no doubt reads 1 Peter through similar lenses and equally draws the implications for this non-pauline book. A Master of Application, readers are in store for a rich reward of wisdom and practical extrapolations from the text.

The NIV Application Commentary Series doesn't fool around: it gets right down to business, brining this ancient and powerful word of God into the present so that it can be heard and believed with all the freshness of a new day, with all the immediacy of a friend's embrace.
The NIV Application Commentary Series helps pastors and Bible teachers with one the most neglected elements in good preaching--accurate, useful application. Most commentaries tell you a few things that are helpful and much that you do not need to know. By dealing with the original meaning and contemporary significance of each passage, the NIV Application Commentary Series promises to be helpful all the way around.

This series promises to become an indispensable tool for every pastor and teacher who seeks to make the Bible's timeless message speak to this generation.
Here, at last, is a commentary that makes the proper circuit from the biblical world to main street. The NIV Application Commentary is magnificent gift to the church.
College Church, Wheaton, IL
Here at last is a commentary which is not only academically well informed but which helps the contemporary reader hear God's word and consider its implications; scholarship in the service of the church.
If you want to avoid hanging applicational elephants from interpretive threads, then the NIV Application Commentary Series is for you. This series excels at both original meaning and contemporary significance. I support it one hundred percent.

President, Bethel College & Seminary
It takes more than interpretation of God's word to change lives, it takes application. Application is the bottom line in teaching and preaching. Without it, we've missed the point of the Bible. The NIV Application Commentary is an outstanding resource for pastors and anyone else who is serious about developing "doers of the word".
The NIV Application Commentary Series shares the same goal that has been the passion of my own ministry--communicating God's word to a contemporary audience so that they feel the full impact of its message.
Willow Creek Community Church
This series dares to go where few scholars have gone before--into the real life world of biblical application faced by pastors and teachers everyday. This is everything a good commentary series should be.
Pastor, Wooddale Church
Some commentaries build walls that isolate you back in the ancient world. The NIV Application Commentary builds bridges that make the Bible come alive with meaning for contemporary life--and the series do so concisely, clearly, and accurately. No wasted words or academic detours--just solid help and practical truth.

Scott3 Stars Out Of 5June 9, 2008ScottOverall, a good commentary, not very expository. A couple comments are more allegorical than they should be.
John Tew4 Stars Out Of 5January 31, 2004John TewGreat for homiletic study. Not particularly historical or critical but very helpful in preparing lessons. It accomplishes its purpose.
David Southwell4 Stars Out Of 5December 13, 2001David SouthwellFor some of you who may be simple minded like me, this set helps me to understand ideas and concepts because it has been written for simple minded people and who look for applicational meaning in their studies of the scripture.
