Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. The New International Commentary on the New Testament [NICNT], 18 Vols.

Since its inception in the late 1940s by an international team of NT scholars, the NICNT series has become recognized by pastors, students, and scholars alike as a critical yet orthodox commentary marked by the best of evangelical protestant biblical scholarship.

While based on a thorough study of the Greek text, NICNT volumes explain all technical references for easy understanding. Authors evaluate significant textual problems, historical issues, scholarly literature, and explore theological themes. The most highly technical elements are generally dealt with in footnotes, excurses, or appendices maximizing scholarly interaction without exhausting non-academic readers.

This is one of the best exegetical sets to get. Of course one will not agree with each and every interpretation offered but the scholarship is top-notch. In many cases, the authors have spent more than 15years studying the book upon which they comment. If you had money to purchase just one set on the NT, then look no further, this is it.
God bless

The NICNT is a monument to Evangelical scholarship. While the range of scholars in this set will insure that you likely will not agree with every commentator all the time, there is no doubt that each commentators are qualified men who arrive at their conclusions from solid exegesis. While the price is high for most pastors, the quality of these volumes warrant such a price. They are bound well, in cloth, on good paper with crisp and clear print. These volumes will stand the test of time and be an invaluable resource for many years of ministry and study.

My mentor recommended this commentary series to me in 1996. I took my graduation monetary gifts and purchased several commentary sets. This set by far surpasses them all. The commentary on the Epistle of First Corinthians by Dr Gordon Fee is a must have. This commentary series should be owned by every serious bible person. You will not be disappointed. It is my first choice among many commentaries I own.

I used my tax return (we do not make a lot of money) to buy these thinking that they were going out of print. When I was putting them on my book shelf I saw that they are not through writing them. I wish I had known this before I bought them.I highly recommend these to any student of exegesis. They are well written and go in depth on needed subjects. I have a great deal of admiration and respect for the editor Gordon Fee.
