Product Description

Winner of the Gold Medallion Award from the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA), the New International Bible Commentary, with F.F. Bruce as its general editor, is a fitting successor to the New Layman's Commentary. The move from the Revised Standard Version (RSV) to the New International Version (NIV) will make this already accessible commentary even more so. Featuring articles and commentary from 43 of the top evangelical scholars (view a list of the contributors), this one-volume commentary on the entire Bible "unlocks the message and meaning of every book of the Bible...to help you gain a deeper, life-changing understanding of Scripture."

With 28 supplemental articles, this commentary offers incredible insights into issues like text and canon; archaeology; environmental, historical, political and religious backgrounds; how the New Testament uses the Old Testament; and others.
