I have the 21st Century edition, but thought a cheap second hand copy of this edition would be useful. Glad I got one.

A good, balanced overview of the whole Bible, respecting the text and message. Scholarship and readablilty - accessible to the thinking layperson as well as to church leaders.

First published in 1953, the New Bible Commentary has been revised and updated 4 times. It has been and still is, the best one volume Bible commentary available. To cover all 66 books of the bible means that some detail must be sacrificed, but the authors capture the flow of the argument in each book well, and also have time to discuss important and controversial issues.
Many of the articles are written by people with best-selling full-length commentaries on the books they were assigned. So you get G J Wenham on Genesis and Peter O'Brien on Colossians, for example.
Highly recommended.
If you would like this book at a bargain price, with 17 other helpful books, including the Dictionary of Biblical Imagery, Sinclair Ferguson's New Dictionary of Theology, the New Bible Dictionary and the New Dictionary of Biblical Theology, Amazon also sells the Essential IVP Reference Collection CD ROM.

I was advised to buy this but find that there is almost as much detail given in the bible. I thought it would provide much more info.
