From the Publisher
The NIV Application Commentary series is unique. Most commentaries focus on the original meaning of the Bible 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 with both halves of Bible study. It builds a bridge from the past to the world we live in?explaining not only what the Bible meant, but also how it can speak powerfully today.
