B&H Books Holman New Testament Commentary, 12 Volumes

The Holman New Testament Commentary offers expository explanation of the popular NIV text based on trusted, conservative scholarship. A multi-faceted a step approach leads the reader from the introduction with contemporary illustrations, through verse-by-verse commentary, to a conclusion and life application. "Deeper Discoveries" help the reader understand the most important words, phrases, and teaching of each chapter. A teaching outline helps the reader to internalize what has been read, organize its message, and prepare to share it with others. The "Final Issues for Discussion" section brings closure to the reader's study. A closing prayer personalizes the study and commits the reader to live out the truths studied. A great commentary for pastors and laypersons.

These books are very handy for the layman who is studying scripture. The pages are broken up with little tidbits of information, application stories, famous quotes, and my favorite, "in a nutshell". What this does is render the books very readable and enjoyable, you are not staring at lines and lines of text, the text is broken up. I have enjoyed using these books and would highly recommend them to any layman. These would not be good for a seminarian student however because these do not go into the depth required for a graduate program.

A very thorough commentary set for a reasonable price. I use the Holman NIV commentary set, crossway ESV study bible, and MacArthur commentary set as I study the word. These books are compelling me, for the first time in my life; with an enthusiasm for reading the word of God (this was hindered in the past due to my inability to interpret some scripture). I am EXTREMELY grateful for the blessings that that these texts provide, i.e., in-depth and understandable analysis, contemporary language (as opposed to Calvin, Poole, Henry, etc.), supporting scripture, etc.

As I wanted to grow in bible knowledge I was looking for some books to help me with that. Though I think they are a bit brief for use in sermon preparation, they are a great help to make the make the most of my daily, personal Bible time, it really has raised the quality of that, as did the Holman OT commentary.

These are suitable for basic study and for a beginning preacher, but if you are planning to use them for sermon preparation the NAC's are a much better choice. They are disappointing in that there are several passages and even books that are hardly studied at any depth.

Great Commentaries! This was a gift to me from our church of the occasion of my ordination. These are very pastoral books. They really help to put it at a level that is easy to teach. I recommend them to anyone that desires to teach the Bible.

I find this to be a great tool in preparing my weekly sermons. It is very readable and filled with lots of good info. I use them along with my James Boice commentaries which are outstanding.

I am a pastor and I have been using these to help with my sermon preparation. They have been very helpful. Very good insights as well as practical applications. Excellent for "short notice" sermon prep, as well. A great product!
