Many commentaries focus only on linguistic or cultural data, ignoring any thought of personal application, or at the very least leaving the “What does this mean in today’s world and to me” questions to the reader. On the other hand, there are some popular-level commentaries that are so focused on application that they ignore the historical context of the biblical writings and deliver little more than devotional thoughts. The NIV Application Commentary is designed to bring both of these pursuits together in one series of books.

The NIV Application Commentary is a unique and valuable commentary for those who want to apply the ancient truths of Scripture to their modern-day lives. While many commentaries tend to focus on either historical meaning or practical application, the NIV Application Commentary elegantly weaves these concepts together, helping readers enter the world of the Bible and connect the dots to their lives today. Each passage has three distinct sections of commentary:

Original Meaning: This section gives readers insight into the meaning of the passage in its historical, literary, and cultural context. This is where you will find elements of traditional exegesis.

Bridging Contexts: This portion builds a bridge between the world of the Bible and the world of today. It discusses which aspects of the passage are specific to the time period it was written in and which aspects of the passage are just as applicable today.

Contemporary Significance: Here the reader learns to identify contemporary situations, problems, or questions that are comparable to those faced by the original audience. The authors also explore a variety of contexts in which the passage can be applied today.
