For fifty years the New Bible Commentary has served Bible readers worldwide. This 21st Century Edition builds on the strengths of the previous three:
- a one-volume commentary on the whole Bible by an international team of contributors
- general articles on what the Bible is and how to read it
- an introduction to each Bible book
- commentaries dividing each book into sections for ease of reference

Designed to meet the needs of today, the New Bible Commentary is based on the simplicity and clarity of the NIV text, and makes use of recent international scholarship: 80% of the articles are entirely new and the rest have been rewritten. New maps, diagrams, charts and tables illuminate the text, and further reading lists are included with each article.

"IVP is to be congratulated on producing this edition of the New Bible Commentary. I warmly commend it to all those wanting to understand the Bible in greater depth."
- George Carey, formerly Archbishop of Canterbury

"The New Bible Commentary offers a clear and concise explanation of the meaning of every book and every passage in the Bible, and all in one volume. It represents decades of sound biblical scholarship made accessible to the 21st century reader. It is an absolute gold mine. Every serious reader of the Bible should own a copy."
- Rev Dr Mark Stibbe, Vicar of St Andrews Church, Chorleywood, UK

Meet the Authors

D A Carson (Ed)

Dr Don (D. A.) Carson is currently Research Professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. His areas of expertise include biblical theology, the historical Jesus, postmodernism, pluralism, Greek grammar, Johannine theology, Pauline theology, and questions of suffering and evil. Carson has written prolifically and profoundly on all these subjects.

Carson has written or edited 57 books - as well as numerous journal articles - ranging from New Testament commentaries to topical studies on the state of the contemporary church and its wider cultural context. His work is characterised by brilliant theological insight, thorough scholarship, and an uncompromising commitment to the essentials of Reformed doctrine.

Carson's landmark book, The Gagging of God: Christianity Confronts Pluralism won the 1997 Evangelical Christian Publishers Association Gold Medallion Award. Other works that examine the interaction of church and culture include The Inclusive Language Debate (1998), Becoming Conversant With the Emerging Church (2005), Christ and Culture Revisited (2008) and The Intolerance of Tolerance (2012).

Carson's exegetical works include volumes on individual New Testament books in the Revised Expositor's Bible Commentary, Pillar New Testament Commentary, Baker Exegetical Commentary, and New International Greek Testament Commentary. In Exegetical Fallacies (1984, 1996, 2nd ed.), Carson is at his incisive best, analysing the root causes of errors in biblical interpretation. He has also notably edited the New Testament Commentary Survey up to its 7th edition (2013), as well as the Zondervan Study Bible (2015).

Donald Arthur Carson was born in Montreal, Canada, in 1946. His undergraduate degree majored in mathematics and chemistry. He went on to undertake a Master of Divinity with a Baptist seminary and earned his PhD in New Testament from Cambridge University in 1975, the same year he married his wife Joy. In 1978, Carson joined the faculty of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, where he has worked ever since. In 2005 with Tim Keller, Carson founded The Gospel Coalition (TGC) - a network of Reformed churches dedicated to engaging and transforming the wider culture through speaking events, online advocacy, and publication. He continues to be an active guest lecturer in church and academic settings around the world.

Carson lives with his family in Liberty, Illinois. In his spare time he enjoys reading, hiking, and woodworking.

Great commentary
5 stars By Angelina, Sep 08 2016
Helpful when reading the Bible as a theological college student or just for daily devotion.

A great whole-Bible commentary
5 stars By Katelyn, Aug 13 2016
In reading the previously written reviews you get a pretty good idea of the great things this commentary can provide. For me also, this was the first commentary I owned and has been an invaluable resource as a go-to when I needed some help understanding a passage, and is one I have often bought for or recommended to others. Whilst it is true that it is not as thorough as a single book commentary, there are also some potential benefits of this at times. For example only the bare necessities of a verse or passage are included, so there is potentially less exegesis and discussion of meaning to get lost in when simply trying to get the general gist of the passage.

I have been particularly enjoying reading through the Psalms with this commentary recently, Motyer provides such great insight, wisdom and depth in his writings.

I highly recommend this as a reference book for anyone who wants to grow with God in understanding His word.

Great addition to the bookshelf
4 stars By Angus, Jul 16 2016
Great book to read in accompaniment with a Bible, and particularly the Old Testament. There are two great benefits of this book. Firstly, it highlights what the focus or key thrust of a particular passage or verse is, and so is a great tool for getting a broad and general understanding of a text. Secondly, it explains difficult-to-understand words or phrases, which is always a great help. Invaluable to those who struggle to read their Bible, too.

an invaluable resource
5 stars By Hoa, May 03 2016
The bulk of this book contains a running commentary on every book of the Bible. Understandably, each passage is not treated in as much detail as a dedicated commentary. The variety of authors results in a variety of styles. Some books are treated in a section-by-section fashion which look at the general idea and bring out special points. Other books (especially shorter letters) tend to have almost verse-by-verse exposition. Some books such as Mark's Gospel move quite quickly to application to the modern reader, while others focus more on the original meaning. Each book is prefaced with a succinct introduction to the themes, author and background of the book, and a summary of it's structure. Articles on biblical history, literary genres and how to read the Bible are also included. The overall quality of this book makes it incredibly valuable resource for anyone wanting to read their Bibles better.

Great First Commentary
5 stars By Dan, Mar 10 2013
This was the first Bible commentary I bought, and it is a fantastic resource for anyone wanting to understand the Bible in more detail.  There's nothing too complicated or difficult to understand, and the guides at the beginning that go into things such as Biblical history and how to approach the Bible are very helpful.  Definitely recommended for anyone who wants a greater depth to their Bible reading
