The NIGTC Series: New Aims for a New Era
Last year Eerdmans introduced Mark Goodacre and Todd Still as the new editors of the New International Greek Testament Commentary series. Since then, Goodacre and Still have been hard at work with our interior editorial team to determine the direction of the series for the twenty-first century. To that end, they have created a new series description that lays out in broad terms what readers can expect from future volumes.
Here’s the new description:
The New International Greek Testament Commentary offers scholarly engagement with the text of the New Testament for serious students of the Bible.
Commentaries in this series are based upon the Greek text. Authors begin with a detailed introduction, then translate each passage, offer text-critical analysis, discuss form and structure, and comment on historical, linguistic, theological, and literary features of the text.
This series does not represent any particular theological viewpoint or denominational affiliation. Authors write on the basis of a careful analysis of the primary texts, well-rounded knowledge of relevant contexts, and judicious consideration of secondary literature.
The commentaries in this series will inform all readers—clergy, scholars, and interested laypersons—in their encounter with the documents of the New Testament.
Along with the series editors Mark Goodacre and Todd Still, we at Eerdmans are extremely excited to chart a new direction for a commentary series of such distinction.
