Here’s some news! We just released a new version of our New American Commentary Old & New Testament Set. It now holds 42 volumes. You can visit our website here to see all of the volumes included, along with what ones are not available yet.
With this update, we thought it would be nice to share some information with you about this resource. We’ll even give you a look inside. Let’s start!
WHAT IS THE NAC?
The New American Commentary collects the best in contemporary evangelical scholarship in a series that examines the entire Bible in depth. Currently, it offers 18 volumes of commentary on the New Testament and 24 volumes of commentary on the Old Testament.
It based on the NIV Bible text and provides verse-by-verse analysis. Additionally, it is considered to be a mid-level commentary, relfecting comprehensive biblical research in the original languages of the Bible, but avoids using overly-technical language. That way, you don’t have to have a seminary background in order to understand.
The New American Commentary consistently supports the inerrancy of Scripture and contributing scholars all hold explicit commitments to Scripture’s infallibility. Its distinctive perspective is a focus on the theological ideas springing from Scripture.
Along with the textual grounding of an expository commentary, the New American Commentary also focuses on the broader strokes of theology developed by each book, and interprets each book as a theological unity. Rooted in conservative theology, this resource also directly engages a wide range of theological and exegetical issues raised by contemporary biblical scholarship.
A LOOK INSIDE
Every book comes with an outline and book introductions. You can easily navigate through the commentary set with the List View of our toolbar navigation.
You can read the commentary in the main window and open Scripture references and footnotes in a helpful pop-up window.
And as you are reading the Bible, the resource guide will let you know if the NAC has an article on the passage you are reading. All you’ll need to do tap, and it will open, following along with wherever you are in the main window.
If a verse in a different section is references in the commentary, you can still open a pop-up window to read it.
