Baker's New Testament Commentary is designed for serious Bible students and pastors who want the insight of quality evangelical scholarship communicated with clarity. This award-winning series was researched and written for those who want a commentary of the entire New Testament that closely follows a reformed theological perspective.
Each volume offers fresh translation of the Scripture, 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's New Testament Commentary has earned the acclaim and respect of reformed and evangelical scholars and pastors. Since Dr. Hendriksen's death in 1982, the series has been continued by Simon J. Kistemaker. Four of the volumes compiled by Dr. Kistemaker earned the Gold Medallion Award (Hebrews, James and 1-3 John, Acts, and 1 Corinthians). The series was completed in 2001 with the publication of Revelation.
