By FrKurt Messick HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on July 19, 2003
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 XII--
The twelfth volume of the New Interpreter's Bible is the volume that completes the the New Testament and the series, containing the non-Pauline letters and the Revelation.

I can't believe that no one has written an online review of this book yet! The NIB is the best Bible commentary written. If you are serious about scholarly study of the Bible, you need to buy the entire series. It is expensive to buy 12 volumes at $60-70 each, even if you save 30% through amazon.com like I did ;). In that case, check with your church or library. As a fall-back try Harper's or Jerome's for single volume commentaries. If at all possible, buy the NIB. Forget the earlier version of the IB.
The NIB is the definitive standard for serious Bible scholarship.

This is an exceptionally good series of commentaries with a good format and excellent scholarship. At first, there can be an impression that the dual translation presented in parallel takes up too much room. However when the commentary and references are studied, it is an asset. The benefit is that the NIV is a Dynamic Equivalence translation for clarity of meaning, similar to the NLT. The NIV is beside the NRSV which is closer to Word for Word translation. Both translations are highly respected. I hope to acquire this set in digital format in my LOGOS Bible Study Software.

These commentaries are fantastic for exegetical study; scholarly and informed. They're a bit spendy so I buy one every few months. My set is now complete and I use them every week for sermon and bible study prep. They're a great 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.

Very easy to read, balanced commentary. Explains the Greek grammar without being exhaustive. I am using it for a class on 1-2 Peter and Jude, and it has been a great help.

We have several of the NIB volumes, and whichever scholor compiled this volume, wrote in a very approchable and informative style. By far my favorite volume in the series.
