Douglas J. Moo (PhD, University of St. Andrews) is the Kenneth T. Wessner Professor of New Testament at Wheaton College. His work centers on understanding the text of the New Testament and its application today. He has written extensively in several commentary series, including the NIV Application Commentary, Pillar Commentary, Tyndale New Testament Commentary, and the New International Commentary on the New Testament.
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.

The Geeky Calvinist5 Stars Out Of 5A Preacher's Commentary on RomansFebruary 20, 2018The Geeky CalvinistQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5One of the hardest yet fulfilling books to preach through is the Book of Romans. It is therefore extremely helpful that Zondervan Publications has put out a commentary on the Book of Romans 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 the famous Douglas J. Moo, the author of numerous commentaries, including a more scholarly commentary on Romans in the NICNT, and while not made for scholars does not disappoint. His background and his deep understanding of the writings of Paul specifically that of Romans make this phenomenal work on the book of Romans..
In dealing with the commentary proper, 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 preacher's 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.
Furthermore despite the complex theological heresy know as the New Perspective on Paul, Moo stays stalwart in the orthodox belief that Paul was writing about the justification by faith alone rather refuting covenantal nomism. This is important to note in a scholarly world which seems to have fallen under sway of this new system of heretical beliefs.
These books was provided to me free of charge from Zondervan Press in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.

Tim S5 Stars Out Of 5September 12, 2007Tim SExcellent, Moo is able to get to the roots of all the hard issues that we face in Romans, while at the same time not going so deep that he loses anyone less than a scholar. Moo by my review is a conservative and reliable commentator. Additionally, the format of the Application Commentary is very helpful in taking the interpretive journey.
