Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament

The Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament, a new series that will cover the entire New Testament in twenty volumes. For the past seven years, a team of scholars has carefully planned and shaped this series. Thisgroup included Clinton E. Arnold (general editor), George H. Guthrie, William D. Mounce, Thomas R. Schreiner, Mark L. Strauss, and a number of other consulting editors, pastors, ministry leaders, and seminary professors.

Key features and Distinctives:
  • A graphical display of each passage enables the reader to grasp quickly and accurately the main idea of the text, its development, and supporting ideas.
  • “Theology in Application” section follows the commentary proper and reflects on the overall theological message of the passage and its function in the biblical book and biblical theology as a whole. Further, discussion of how the passage should be understood and applied in the church today is also included.
  • Identification and discussion of the main idea of each passage occurs in the graphical display, the introduction to the passage, and the “Theology in Application” section. Few commentaries do this consistently.
  • Responsible interaction with the Greek text ensures that the commentary remains understandable to pastors, teachers, and students.
  • Scholarly, yet accessible. Though certainly familiar with the best scholarly literature on their book, contributors only present the most important findings when appropriate for their church-serving readers.
