New International Commentary on the Old Testament


Purpose & Scope
Each volume in the NICNT/OT series uses all the tools of critical scholarship yet remains committed to evangelical principles of inspiration. It is a multi-faceted commentary dealing with exegetical and theological issues while also giving a comprehensive review of scholarship. All technical remarks (e.g. use of Greek or Hebrew) are typically confined to notes and appendixes.

Each author has sought to work with the original languages, though they also employ the translation of their choice in the discussion. Moreover, this series reflects the rich and diverse tradition of Protestantism and includes Reformed, Pentecostal, Methodist, and Anglican commentators.

In order to keep the commentary new and conversant with contemporary scholarship, the NICNT/OT volumes are constantly under review and updated or replaced as necessary. Newer volumes, in particular, take into account the role of recent rhetorical and sociological inquiry in elucidating the meaning of the text.

Comprised, to date, of 26 vols. the NICOT continues to grow year-by-year and will eventually cover the entire OT. The NT series consists of 20 volumes, only missing work on 2 Peter & Jude.

The NT Volumes (NICNT) are also available.
