Series: Bringing the Bible to Life
Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from the twentieth century to the first century. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don't discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable -- but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps us with both halves of the interpretive task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into modern context. It explains not only what the Bible means but also how it can speak powerfully today. The NIV Application Commentary series helps with both halves of Bible study. It builds a bridge from the past to the world we live in -- explaining not only what the Bible meant, but also how it can speak powerfully today.
George H. Guthrie (PhD, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary) serves as the Benjamin W. Perry Professor of Bible at Union University in Jackson, Tennessee. As a specialist in New Testament and Greek, he is the author of numerous articles and four books including the volume Hebrews in the NIV Application Commentary series.

We read chapters 1-10 and then wonder: a) what does it mean and b) how can I apply what I read to 2017 life. George Guthrie has helped at both these points. The NIV Application Series does what it says it will do in the hands of this evangelical scholar; but it does more. Progressive revelation, type-antitype literary approaches, and OT-NT relationship are made clearer and more pertinent. More, Guthrie's treatment of the "warning passages" in Hebrews (2, 3-4, 6, 10) are helpful without demanding one theological position or another. I highly recommend this volume.

The unique quality of explaining the Biblical text within the arena of the culture of when it was written then bridging that culture to our own contempoary setting makes this commentary extremely valuable in presenting important applications to a Christians daily life.
being heardYoung Harris, GAAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A well-written, well-researched commentaryFebruary 10, 2012being heardYoung Harris, GAAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This is exactly the kind of commentary I wanted to use in teaching a special study in Hebrews. The NIV Application Commentary series format of Original Meaning, Bridging Contexts, and Contemporary Significance is very helpful in presenting not only the truth of Scripture, but the context for the original reader and the application for today's generation. The Contemporary Significance sections sometime seems a little long and labored, but I guess it depends on how you want to use the study. Guthrie's credentials in writing on the daunting letter of Hebrews are excellent, and he has a pleasant and enlightening style of writing.
Andrew Kikkert5 Stars Out Of 5September 28, 2010Andrew KikkertThis commentary has been the most helpful commentary I have found in assisting me in preparing sermons with direct application for my church. An outstanding resource.
Buddy Boone5 Stars Out Of 5October 17, 2001Buddy BooneThe NIVAC series varies more than most because of the diversity of the contributors and the awful format. However, there are several volumes that are outstanding in spite of the format and George Guthrie's work is clearly one of the best in the series. Dr. Guthrie has provided us with much help in understanding the structure of Hebrews which has a profound influence on how we understand the sermon/letter. There is very little Greek help in the work, but it is very enlightening when used along with a good technical commentary on the Greek text (e.g., Lane-WBC and Ellingworth-NIGTC). Guthrie has done a great job in making the best of a goofy format. Whoever came up with the idea for the NIVAC series should know that a good commentary does what this series was intended to do, but without butchering the exegesis. Having said that, I want to be clear that many of the volumes in this series are worth having due simply to the outstanding scholarship of the contributors.
