All of the scholars who contributed are the best in their field.
Joshua Villines
The volumes were published individually, and can be purchased individually, which is a good thing, given that they are a bit expensive.
FrKurt Messick
This is a great bible study, preaching preparation and devotional tool.

Most people understand that the study of Scripture is an enormous task; and that there is a considerable theological heritage to even the most benign of passages. Unfortunately, it is sometimes difficult to translate that understanding into a willingness to genuinely delve into the vast pool of material out there. In addition, it's hard to know whom to trust.

You can trust the New Interpreter's Bible series. All of the scholars who contributed are the best in their field. In addition, the layout (which includes two complete translations - the NIV and the NRSV) is conducive to both scholarly and spiritual study of the texts.

Each text is broken down into discrete units followed by general commentary on the passage, verse by vers analysis of key issues, and then an overview of study questions. The commentators address issues of authorship, historical setting, translation, theological history, and personal application. In addition, they graciously point to excellent sources for further reading.

Speaking as a pastor, it is my strong opinion that every English-speaking Christian who is serious about Bible study should own the complete set.

As a former student of Alan Culpepper's, I can personally attest to the rigorousness of his scholarship and the depth of his faith.

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 IX--
The ninth volume of the New Interpreter's Bible continues the New Testament, the Gospels of Luke and John in particular.
R. Alan Culpepper of the Mercer School of Theology provides the commentary on the gospel Luke.

This is my 4th purchase in this series and I intend to keep buying as long as they are available on Amazon - such a savings. This is a great bible study, preaching preparation and devotional tool. I love the fact that it contains 2 translations and is not too technical, yet has enough information for you to study as deep as you wish. Every student and teacher of God's word wants this in their library.
