Sale on Select Commentary Series from Eerdmans

The Accordance Summer of Savings Rolls on with Commentaries from Eerdmans Publishing Company!

If you have been wanting to build your commentary library in Accordance, this has definitely been the summer for you. We’ve seen week after week of deep-discount sales on major commentary series. This week is no different because now we have four major commentary series from Eerdmans Publishing discounted for a limited time.

Imagine being able to access The New International Commentary of the Old Testament or New Testament, The New International Greek Testament Commentary, or The Pillar New Testament Commentary on your MacBook Pro, your Windows tablet, your iPad or even your iPhone—no matter where you are. We live in the age of the portable library. A few years ago, one person could not have physically carried any of these multivolume commentary sets all at once—at least not easily and certainly not very far! Now, you can take along your entire Accordance library including all your Eerdmans commentaries in your book bag, in one hand, or even your pocket.

NICOT_NICNT Together for a limited time: NICOT & NICNT

Up first, we present a rare opportunity to purchase all 44 volumes of the renowned New International Old Testament Commentary (NICOT) and the New International New Testament Commentary (NICNT) together at one significantly discounted price. Both of these series are works in progress, but have proved themselves as sound exegesis from some of the best voices in Evangelical scholarship.

Each volume contains the author’s translation of the passage, in-depth commentary, attention to text-critical issues, and lengthy bibliographies for further research. A knowledge of biblical languages is not required to use these commentaries, but be assured that the writers will deal with original language issues in a way that is accessible for most readers.

Originally edited by the late R. K. Harrison, the NICOT is now under the supervision of Robert L. Hubbard. This series includes volumes by well-known Old Testament scholars such as Victor Hamilton, Daniel Block, Tremper Longman and others (see complete list of volumes and authors in the NICOT here).

Well-known New Testament scholar Gordon Fee is the current general editor for the NICNT, taking over the reigns for former editors, Ned Stonehouse and F. F. Bruce (both now deceased). The NICNT features established New Testament scholars such as Leon Morris, Scot McKnight, I. Howard Marshall and other well-known individuals (see complete list of volumes and authors in the NICNT here). And since the NICNT has been around for a number of years, some of these volumes have been replaced so as to take advantage of the latest advances in biblical scholarship. This collection for Accordance includes both the original and the newly revised volumes for the books of John, Hebrews and James.

If you were to buy all 44 volumes together in print, you would spend $2,272; but right now, you can add all these volumes to Accordance—that’s the NICOT and NICNT together—for $779, which is 42% off our already-bargain price of $1338.

If you already have one set or the other, this is a great time to complete your collection. The NICOT (regularly $699) is selling for $439, and the NICNT (regularly $639) is on sale for $399.

During this sale, all individual volumes of the NICOT & NICNT, as well as the upgrade from NICNT to NICNT21 (21 volumes) are 30% off using the coupon code EerdCom14 at checkout.

New International Greek Testament Commentary

The New International Greek Testament Commentary (NIGTC) is another favorite Eerdmans commentary series on sale for Accordance for a limited time.

The NIGTC, edited by I. Howard Marshall and Drew Hagner, has as its aim “to provide a theological understanding of the text, based on historical–critical–linguistic exegesis” (from the preface). Although the Greek text is the basis of the NIGTC, it is not designed to be an overly-technical commentary. If you have taken Greek in the past but have become a bit rusty in recent years, the NIGTC is a great series to help you brush up on your Greek while studying the Scriptures.

With scholars such as I. Howard Marshall, F. F. Bruce, Peter Davids, and G. K. Beale (see complete list of volumes and authors in the NIGTC here), the NIGTC has a print value of $794. But for one week only, you can obtain this entire series for the incredible price of $299, which is nearly 41% off our regular price.

During this sale, all individual volumes of the NIGTC are 30% off using the coupon code EerdCom14.

PNTC Pillar New Testament Commentary

Edited by D. A. Carson, The Pillar New Testament Commentary seeks to seriously interact with the Word of God while making its meaning plain to modern readers. Although not overly technical, the Pillar series does wrestle with difficult and complex issues, making an understanding of them accessible to both the serious student of the Bible and the layperson as well.

Including writers such as Douglas Moo, D. A. Carson, and Leon Morris (see complete list of volumes and authors in the Pillar series here), the Pillar New Testament Commentary has a print value of $671. It can regularly be purchased for Accordance for $399; but currently, The Pillar New Testament Commentary is on sale for $259.

During this sale, all individual volumes of The Pillar New Testament Commentary as well as the upgrades to the latest Pillar NTC3 from Pillar NTC and from Pillar NTC-2 are 30% off using the coupon code EerdCom14 at checkout.

Want Individual Volumes of NICOT? No Problem!

NICOT-Num-cover-sm

Many people like to buy multi-volume commentaries as complete sets, and doing so generally results in the lowest price per volume. Accordance offers a number of these large sets, such as Word, NAC, NIGTC, Pillar, Hermeneia, Tyndale, NICNT, NICOT, etc. Purchase just one or two of these sets and you'll have a commentary library that would require several bookshelves to house all the print volumes. In addition to saving money on bookshelves (and the time it takes to assemble them!), buying these sets in Accordance is typically much cheaper than buying them in print.

Still, even the Accordance editions of these commentary sets often require a significant investment, and it can be hard to justify spending hundreds of dollars on a complete set when all you really need are the volumes on the books of the Bible you're currently studying. A pastor preaching through Isaiah, for example, could spend the money for the complete NICOT series and get one commentary on Isaiah, or he could take that same money and buy just the Isaiah volumes from a half-dozen different commentary series. When finished with Isaiah, he can then do the same thing with the next Bible book he preaches from.

Last month, we released the New International Commentary on the Old Testament (NICOT) as a complete set, and the folks who buy commentaries that way have been snapping them up. Now we're offering individual volumes for purchase to accommodate those of you who prefer the volume-by-volume approach. As with all the commentaries for which we offer individual volumes, we'll still give you a discount for purchasing three or more volumes together. See this page to purchase individual volumes of NICOT and other commentary series.

Do you prefer buying complete commentary sets or individual volumes? Why?
