The NIV Application Commentary is a robust Bible reference series, the goal of which is to bear a scholar’s level of focus on each individual book of the Bible. Each volume is edited by a separate Bible scholar, each of whom approach the biblical text with the utmost seriousness and always provide thorough justification for their positions by grounding them in the historical data and textual evidence.
Within Bible Gateway Plus – which puts a pastor’s level of biblical resources at your fingertips – you gain access to 8 volumes of the critically-acclaimed NIV Application Commentary which cover the following books of the Bible:
Galatians, Ephesians, and Philippians were added at the end of June. Each reference work contains:
- Important points on cultural background.
- Interpretation of difficult passages.
- Notes on original languages and translation decisions.
- Discourse on thematic elements and present-day application.
I recommend taking some time this month to re-read these short but impactful letters from Paul to some of the earliest Christian churches, using the NIV Application Commentary notes to develop your understanding of them. You can also delve into Paul’s conversion and earliest ministry with the NIV Application Commentary for the book of Acts.
