Product Details

Baker New Testament Commentary is composed for the benefit of serious Bible students and pastors who want the insight of quality evangelical scholarship communicated with clarity. Each volume offers fresh translation, repetition of the text before each exegetical unit, verse-by-verse comments and applications, critical notes on the Greek text, and chapter summaries. Extensive bibliographies and indexes of authors, Scripture, and other ancient writings enhance the usefulness of each volume.

Begun by William Hendriksen, Baker New Testament Commentary has earned the acclaim and respect of Reformed and evangelical scholars and pastors. Since Hendriksen's death in 1982, the series has been continued by Simon J. Kistemaker. The series was completed in 2001 with the publication of Revelation. Now, for the first time, the entire twelve-volume set may be purchased by pastors, church libraries, and serious students of the Bible.

If you own the New Testament Commentaries . . . nothing more needs to be said. If you do not own them, you should—that is, if you are a serious student of Scripture.
