Zondervan's 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! This 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
Learn not only what Peter said to his audience in the first century but also how what he taught can be applied today in this volume of the NIV Application Commentary Series.
Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from the twentieth century to the first century. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage 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 us with both halves of the interpretive task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into modern context. It explains not only what the Bible means but also how it can speak powerfully today.
