Series: NIV Application Commentary
insight into how the Israelites story of covenant experience with God becomes our story today Leviticus and Numbers tell of an epic journey to freedom, while illuminating and challenging modern conceptions of God. Vivid imagery of rituals, laws addressing tough issues, and narratives ranging from exultant to gut-wrenching show what it means to interact with the Lord and how to live according to his holy principles as part of a redeemed community of faith.
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.

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.

nickname5 Stars Out Of 5Good for sermon prep - good explanations and great applicationFebruary 6, 2015nicknameQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I had some questions about Leviticus and picked this up. Instead started reading the Numbers portion. The description and application of chapter 1 and 2, (census and organization of the camp, etc). to present times has been very helpful. This is information that could be preached and would bring new life to some of the dustier chapters on the OT. Any book that can make some of the "boring" OT passages alive with present meaning and application is a plus.
The quality of the cover book and paper is good as well, not something that will easily get banged up with use.

However I do not love this volume. The insides in terms of the symbolism and the temple are very helpful however this book in general is a very well written justification for the SDA Doctrine of the Sanctuary and the Investigative Judgment. For this peculiar interpretation I have to give it a 3 because even when it is a very convincing and educated way to propose their belief to the rest of the Christian community it is a very confusing interpretation that claims grace and works of the law to be truly saved.
