Also available:  NIV Application Commentary-OT

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.

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 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 i needed to get a technical commentary set (wbc).

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 i needed to get a technical commentary set (wbc). However, i got a hard copy of a volume to see how i got on with the NIVAC set, really liked what i read and jumped when this set was 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 them in accordance with all the enhancement just makes them so good.

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 gets me thinking.

For me, NIVAC makes an excellent combination with a technical commentary (wbc or nicnt). 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 set of non-technical commentaries.

This commentary series is one of my all-time favorites. It is so down-to-earth in its commentary and as it says in its name, it is all about applying the Bible in our lives. I have found this commentary to be the one I return to more and more often.

I enjoy inductive Bible study so once I've thoroughly studied a passage using the inductive method with various Bible dictionaries as my only lifeline, I will finally open up this commentary and gather further insight.

I highly recommend this entire NT series and look forward the full OT commentaries in their future release with Accordance.
