The New American Commentary Series
In development for over a decade, The New American Commentary series is for those who have been seeking a commentary that honors the Scriptures, represents the finest in contemporary evangelical scholarship and lends itself to practical work of preaching and teaching. This comprehensive series serves as a minister's friend and a Bible student's guide.
The New American Commentary is based on the inerrancy of Scripture, focuses on the intrinsic theological and exegetical concerns of each Biblical book, and engages the range of issues raised in contemporary Biblical scholarship. Drawing on the skills and insight of over forty Bible scholars, the New American Commentary brings together scholarship and piety to produce a tool that enhances and supports the life of the church.
Highlights of This Volume
In the first eleven chapters of his Gospel, John shows the growing opposition toward Jesus on the part of the Jewish leaders. Chapters 12-21 show how that opposition expressed itself in the arrest, trials, and crucifixion of Jesus. It also presents Jesus' ressurection and appearance to Mary Magdalene and the eleven disciples.

The New American Commentary is nothing short of excellent. The scholarship is superb and up-to-date. The format is fresh and is totally given to a revealing of the meaning of the text. No stone seems to be left unturned. Both exegetically and homiletically, pastors will find a veritable gold mine of information. I believe this series will set the standard for years to come.
The New American Commentary will prove to be most useful to pastor, study leaders, and serious Bible students. I appreciate the format, outlines, introductions, careful and scholarly exegesis, and application. All of these will prove most helpful.
