Format: Hardcover
The New Interpreter's Bible is a twelve-volume series, updating the popular Interpreter's Bible from a few decades ago. There are several key features common to all of the volumes of this series. First, each includes a two-column, double translation of the Biblical text (NIV - New International Version, and NRSV - New Revised Standard Version) arranged by topical unit or story. Then, they provide commentaries that look at the passages as a whole, as well as verse-by-verse. Third, interesting Reflection pieces that relate the passages to each other, to history, and to current concerns occur at the conclusion of each passage. Fourth, introductory articles for each book are provided that discuss transmission, historical background, cultural setting, literary concerns, and current scholarship. Finally, there are general articles about the Bible, each Testament, and various types of literature (Narrative, Gospel, Wisdom Literature, etc.) are provided to give general placement and knowledge about the text overall.
The list of contributors, editors, and consultants on the project is a veritable Who's Who of biblical and theological scholarship, representing all major traditions and schools of thought liberal and conservative. Leander Keck, of the Yale Divinity School, is the primary editor of the series.
The volumes were published individually, and can be purchased individually, which is a good thing, given that they are a bit expensive. But for any serious biblical scholar, preacher, student, or enthusiast, they are invaluable.
--Volume XI--
The eleventh volume of the New Interpreter's Bible is the volume that completes the Pauline corpus in the New Testament, from 2 Corinthians to Philemon.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By William B. Jones on January 2, 2007
Format: Hardcover
Although one generally must look to individual volumes for in-depth commentaries on Biblical books (and then must look to the best volumes selected from among differing series), in the New Interpreter's Bible Volume XI one finds top-flight scholars offering commentaries on the briefer Pauline letters which could easily stand alone. It is part of a series that draws on (and reproduces) both the New Revised Standard Version and New International Version of Christian Scripture.

Here is Andrew Lincoln, author of the now-standard Word Biblical Commentary on Ephesians, speaking on that letter's close theological cousin, Colossians. Here also is Morna Hooker, author of the incisive Black's New Testament Commentary on Mark, expertly leading us through Paul's letter to the Philippians. Joining them is Pheme Perkins, author of the Mark entry in this same series (New Interpreter's Bible, Volume VIII), drawing here especially from the Dead Sea Scrolls as she addresses Ephesians [note that Perkins' commentary was also presented as part of the Abington New Testament Commentary series (1997), though for the NIB she has added numerous pastoral "Reflection" sections, typical of this series].

Add in J. Paul Sampley on the Second Letter to the Corinthians (his commentary on 1 Corinthians is presented in Vol. X of this series), Abraham Smith on Paul's correspondence with the Thessalonians, Richard Hays on the Letter to the Galatians, James D. G. Dunn on the Pastoral Epistles (Timothy and Titus) and cap-off the volume with Cain Hope Felder on Philemon and you have a guide to the briefer Pauline literature which can hardly be overlooked by any seeking to understand what Paul (and those who attempted to emulate him) sought to convey of his ministry, his thinking, and his encounter with Christ.

Format: Hardcover
I was familiar with most of the writers in this volume, and they didn't disappoint. But it was a delight to discover Cain Hope Fielder's efforts on the much-neglected letter to Philemon. In particular, I am in Fielder's debt for the suggestions he makes regarding reconciliation.
