K. Lawson Younger, Jr. (PhD, University of Sheffield) is professor of Old Testament, Semitic languages, and ancient near eastern history at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. He is the author, associate editor, and co-editor of several books, and has contributed to numerous collections of essays, dictionaries, and periodicals.
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.

The Geeky Calvinist5 Stars Out Of 5A Wonderful CommentaryDecember 26, 2017The Geeky CalvinistQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4One of the hardest books to preach through is the Book of Judges. For many of the scene in the Book of Judges run contrary to that of our own current cultural trends. It is therefore extremely helpful that Zondervan Publications has put out a commentary on the Book of Judges and Ruth in the NIV application Commentary series. This commentary is well-known and respected in both popular and scholarly circles. For the NIV application Commentary series truly helps the exegete understand the original context of the text as well as its contemporary significance.
This commentary is written by K Lawson younger Jr who is a professor of Semitic languages in the ancient near East at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. This background and his deep understanding of the historical books of the Old Testament hair to make a phenomenal work on the books of judges and Ruth.
It is confusing that more often than not The Book of Ruth is paired with the Book of Esther even though they are nowhere near the same historical context. It was there for explaining room refreshing to have the Book of Ruth paired with the Book of Judges do to them happening at the same chronological time.
With regard to the introductory section to both of the books inside this work I found the introductory section on the Book of Judges comparable to most mid-level commentaries diving into both composition purpose as well as a few biblical theological components. On the other hand the introduction to the Book of Ruth was little more than a few pages and did not die deeply into authorship or structure. Yet the introduction did Shine when dealing with background issues such as the kinsman-redeemer and Levirate marriage. This study into both of these Concepts are deeply important and necessary when it comes to understanding and applying the Book of Ruth.
In dealing with the commentary proper in both judges and Ruth, the textual commentary is written in pericope sections rather than dealing with a verse by verse exegetical study. This is the form at which the NIV application study commentary, is exclusivity written init was therefore not a surprise, but it is something that a reader should expect. This does not negate in any way this commentaries usefulness rather it enhances a preachers focus on seeing the forest through the trees. I therefore recommend this commentary wholeheartedly as a useful tool to both the preacher, teacher, uneducated laymen, and Sunday school teacher. I do suggest though that this commentary be paired with a more solid one that deals exegetically with each verse.
These books was provided to me free of charge from Zondervan Press in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.
