JUAN Del texto bíblico una aplicación contemporánea LA MAYORÍA DE LOS COMENTARIOS BÍBLICOS solo son un viaje de ida: nos llevan del siglo veintiuno al siglo primero. Pero nos dejan allí, dando por sentado que de algún modo sabernos regresar por nosotros mismos. Dicho de otro modo, se centran en el significado original del pasaje, sin embargo, no se adentran en su aplicación a la vida contemporánea. La información que ofrecen es muy valiosa, pero resulta tan solo una ayuda a medias. LOS COMENTARIOS BÍBLICOS CON APLICACIÓN NVI nos ayudan con las dos partes de la tarea interpretativa, es decir, también nos ayudan a aplicar un mensaje de otra época a nuestro contexto actual. Esta serie no solo nos explica lo que significó para los lectores originales, sino que nos demuestra que también hay un mensaje poderoso para la iglesia de hoy. Para lograrlo analiza cada pasaje entres partes: 1) Sentido original. 2) Construyendo puentes entre los contextos del autor bíblico y el nuestro. 3) Significado contemporáneo.

The NIV Application Commentary Series promises to be of very great service to all who preach and teach the Word of God.
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.

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.

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.
