1 Corinthians: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

1 Corinthians: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

by Craig L. Blomberg

Just as Protestants are now split into countless denominations, the Corinthian church was marred, albeit on a smaller scale, by factions and discord. It fell to Paul to reconcile the church to itself in the face of convictions alike only in the strength that their adherents clung to them with. Subjects like eating habits, doctrine, marriage, lawsuits, and wo… Read more…

2 Corinthians: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

2 Corinthians: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

by Scott J. Hafemann

2 Corinthians follows in the footsteps of 1 Corinthians by providing a window into both Paul’s character and the character of God. You’ll get an intimate glimpse into Paul’s heart and his love for the church in this NIV Application Commentary volume by Scott J. Hafermann, who shows us both the original meaning of 2 Corinthians and how its message appli… Read more…

Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

by Iain Provan

These two books are perhaps the most uniquely challenging books of Scripture. Not only is the language itself is confusing, but it is made even more so because of the seeming contradictions in the text. Furthermore, the writers employ poetic techniques that are relatively unfamiliar for many modern readers. For example, one of the most demanding tasks in th… Read more…

Galatians: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

Galatians: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

by Scot McKnight

This study of Galatians, a part of the NIV Application Commentary series, certainly does not stop at doctrine. The author examines the epistle to the church in Galatia through Paul’s eyes, using the so-called “new perspective” approach: the belief that Judaism, in that time, did not adhere to a “works based” way of being righteous. He remains utter… Read more…

Deuteronomy: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

Deuteronomy: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

by Daniel Block

Arranged as a series of sermons, the book of Deuteronomy represents the final major segment of the biography of Moses. The sermons review events described in earlier books and challenges Israel to faithful living in the future. The theological significance of Deuteronomy cannot be overestimated. Few books in the Bible proclaim such a relevant word of grace a… Read more…

Job: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

Job: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

by John Walton

The title character of the book of Job suffers terribly, but we should not mistakenly think that this book is just about Job. It is about all of us, and ultimately about God. Many have thought that the book simply restates the perennial questions that plague humankind in a world full of suffering. But often our questions are too limited, and we must learn to… Read more…

Letters of John: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

Letters of John: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

by Gary M. Burge

The epistles of John betray the continuing challenges the early church faced. In this volume of the NIV Application Commentary series, Gary M. Burge (Ph.D., King’s College, Aberdeen University) leads us through John’s letters, connecting them to John’s Gospel as he goes, and illuminates their original messages and how we can apply them here and now.… Read more…

2 Peter, Jude: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

2 Peter, Jude: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

by Douglas J. Moo

Peter and Jude, the apostles who wrote these letters, speak against the deceptive messages that other so-called Christians—false prophets—were spreading. They encourage believers to hold fast to the Gospel they were originally given instead of listening to the ungodly, who “by stealth” enter the church and distort God’s grace. These messages, roote… Read more…

James: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

James: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

by David P. Nystrom

James’ epistle is considered by some to be the most difficult New Testament book to comprehend. Its focus is on doing good works, as opposed to the faith that is central to the majority of the other books in the New Testament. This is easy to misunderstand, especially when this seemingly contradictory focus is supported by extensive quotations from Jesus.… Read more…

Judges, Ruth: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

Judges, Ruth: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

by K. Lawson Younger, Jr.

Today’s culture is generally opposed to the concept of judgments. Perhaps due to being disappointed so many times because of the tendency of those who judge to make mistakes, people have started to believe that it is nearly impossible to unequivocally categorize something as a sin. This paradigm has impacted the Christian church in numerous negative ways,… Read more…

1&2 Timothy, Titus: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

1&2 Timothy, Titus: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

by Walter L. Liefeld

Just as today’s church deals with a myriad of issues, Christians in Paul’s time had issues of their own. Doctrinal matters are now dividing lines between thousands of denominations—Paul sensed that danger of division thousands of years ago as he wrote his letters to Timothy and Titus, two young church leaders. He writes about false teachers, the role o… Read more…

Leviticus, Numbers: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

Leviticus, Numbers: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

by Roy Gane

Leviticus and Numbers continue to tell the story of Israel’s failures and God’s relentless love in spite of them. Though these books deal with genuinely hard issues and seem to paint a harsh picture of God, they also emphasize the absolute holiness of God compared to sinful humanity. God wanted His people to be set apart from the rest of humanity in the … Read more…
