Also available: NIV Application Commentary-New Testament

Please note that this 22-volume bundle covers every book of the Old Testament with the exception of the unpublished volumes of Ezra / Nehemiah and Psalms 73-150.

Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. They focus on the original meaning of the passage but don’t discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable—but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps bring both halves of the interpretive task together. This unique, award-winning series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into our present-day context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it speaks powerfully today.

Note: This module contains all of the Old Testament except for Ezra, Nehemiah, and Psalms 73-150.

The more i use NIVAC, the more i really appreciate the set.
When i read the bible, even a familiar passage, often a verse will jump out at me. Something that may not have struck me before.
Every time i read NIVAC, a sentence will jump out at me and get me thinking about the passage in a totally fresh direction. This is great for personal bible study but invaluable when preparing a sermon. I strongly recommend looking at dr j's podcast #37 for a quick look at this series.

This review got me thinking about my paper based journey in bible study. To start with i had a very good study bible (the Jerusalem bible readers edition) then i got a single volume commentary. As i continued to dig deeper i got various individual commentaries including the Tyndale and everyman series but after only a couple of years, I found them leaving me with too many questions and was only happy after I had a good technical commentary set (such as wbc.). However, i got a hard copy of one volume ...

However, i got a hard copy of one volume to see how i got on with NIVAC, really liked what i read and jumped when on offer in accordance. Part of me wishes these had been published years ago when i first started getting commentaries. However part of me is also pleased they weren't, as having NIVAC in accordance with all the enhancement just makes them so useful.

I like the way Nivac is structured. I find the 'original meaning' to be succinct and focused and more use than either the tyndale or everyman volumes, both of which i have virtually stopped referring to now.
Reviewers on a series of commentaries often refer to weaker volumes in a set. Within NIVAC, i have found that the 'contemporary significance' has different styles depending on the author. Most of these i find helpful but i have found that there are one or two authors i do not relate to.
This is where the 'bridging context' comes in, sometimes it is a reworking of one of the other two sections. Sometimes it really does bring something new to the text. However, where i find it incredibly useful is if i don't gel with the author's contemporary significance text, then there will definitely be something in this section that will make me think.

For me, NIVAC makes an excellent combination with a technical commentary (wbc or nicot) and the jps/torah commentaries. It is a good resource for personal study and an excellent trigger for sermon preparation. It is a great resource for triggering my thoughts into a fresh direction.

I would certainly recommend this as a refreshing and challenging set of non-technical commentaries.
