The New Interpreter's Bible One-Volume Commentary is designed for pastors, students, Bible teachers, and laypersons---anyone who wants a portable, accessible, and trustworthy resource for deeper Scripture study. It is a great complement to the New Interpreter's Study Bible.

"This new member of Abingdon's family of biblical commentaries and reference works reflects the vitality and diversity of current scholarship, and the contributors communicate these in ways that pastors, students, and laypeople alike will find interesting as well as informative. The NIBOVC is sure to earn the same respect that is already enjoyed by its widely-acclaimed siblings, like the New Interpreter's Bible and the New Interpreter's Dictionary of the Bible." Victor Paul Furnish University Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Emeritus Southern Methodist University

With essays covering all books in the Old Testament, New Testament, and Apocrypha, coupled with insightful general articles covering a wide range of issues, this book, like its predecessor, will surely set the standard for all such commentaries for generations to come. For scholars, clergy, and students of the Bible looking for the most recent critical assessments of biblical literature and its theological ramifications for the modern world, this will be an indispensable reference work."
