Baker Baker Commentary on the Bible

Designed for laypeople, students, Bible teachers and pastors, The Baker Commentary on the Bible offers an insightful commentary on the entire Bible, based on the New International Version (NIV). With its extensive introductions to each book of the Bible, and its comments, outlines, and discussions of key biblical doctrines, this one-volume commentary will prove invaluable to all Christian learners. With insightful commentary from thirty-eight evangelical scholars like Walter Elwell, Tremper Longman, Douglas Moo, and others (for a full listing of contributors, click here ), this volume admirably succeeds in helping "the average reader of the Bible understand what the text says." Preaching magazine calls this commentary "a solid contribution to the field...preachers looking for a contemporary one-volume biblical commentary will greet the Baker Commentary on the Bible with enthusiasm." Bookstore Journal calls it "well-designed and readable" and the Baptist Standard calls it "worthy of serious study."

I can`t afford and didn`t really want a separate commentary for all the Books of the Bible. Glad you had this one.

This commentary is excellent for a few reasons: 1) It is easy to read and understand. 2) It is conservative and concise (gets to the point without giving a lot of unnecessary comments). 3) It treats different perspectives on difficult passages of scripture fairly. 4) It only uses dogma where it is absolutely necessary. I recommend this commentary to anyone who is interested in studying the Bible.
