    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Still the best one volume bible commentary

    First published in 1953, the New Bible Commentary has been revised and updated 4 times. It has been and still is, the best one volume Bible commentary available. To cover all 66 books of the bible means that some detail must be sacrificed, but the authors capture the flow of the argument in each book well, and also have time to discuss important and controversial issues.

    Many of the articles are written by people with best-selling full-length commentaries on the books they were assigned. So you get G J Wenham on Genesis and Peter O'Brien on Colossians, for example.

    Highly recommended.

    If you would like this book at a bargain price, with 17 other helpful books, including the Dictionary of Biblical Imagery, Sinclair Ferguson's New Dictionary of Theology, the New Bible Dictionary and the New Dictionary of Biblical Theology, Amazon also sells the Essential IVP Reference Collection CD ROM.

    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Descriptive commentary from a strong educational source -IVP

    The scholars who have contributed to this sterling commentary are clearly people after the heart of the truth in the Bible. The writings are from various times, and have been updated regularly and revised to keep the style relevant to the modern reader. Although the quotations are from the NIV, the commentary does not glue itself to any particular translation. Rather it seeks to determine the most likely from a number of sources - often explaining how some translations do not offer a meaning as passionate as the original text.

    I would recommend this book to ANYONE seeking to learn more about their Bible. It is non denominational, it does not seek to conclude on issues, only to clarify what the writers of the bible appear to mean, by demystifying the problems with reading what can be hard to understand through the veil of translation into English.

    This is one book that I have next to my bible 95% of the time, and CONSTANTLY turn to it. Interestingly enough, I find I cannot separate my Bible from it, as when I am reading the commentary it makes clear the woven tapestry that the Bible is, it does this by making one think of OTHER portions than the one that may be under discussion. It is self referential and is therefore confident in that which it describes, and it mirrors the Bible very well in this.

    Its a GREAT book that leaves no stone unturned, and completely follows the books of both Old and New Testament.

    I would (and did) choose this one over ANY other Bible study book.
