New Cambridge Bible Commentary

The New Cambridge Bible Commentary (NCBC) series—like the original Cambridge Bible Commentary of the 1960s and 1970s—aims to elucidate the Hebrew and Christian scriptures for a wide range of intellectually curious individuals. Commentaries in the NCBC are academically rigorous but do not assume the reader has a great deal of specialized theological knowledge or an impressive command of the Hebrew, Aramaic, or biblical Greek.

Unlike the earlier series, however, the NCBC takes advantage of many of the rewards provided by scholarly research over the last several decades. While not mistaking trendiness for truth, volumes in the NCBC make accessible and build upon many of the advances in theory and theology produced in universities and seminaries during the last forty years. Utilizing recent gains in rhetorical criticism, social scientific study of the scriptures, narrative criticism and other developing disciplines, this series intends to provide a fresh look at biblical texts, taking advantage of the growing edges in Biblical Studies.
