New for PocketBible: KJV and NIV Commentary

Posted on: May 17th, 2012 by Michelle Stramel No Comments

We have released new commentary for use with PocketBible and MyBible, Zondervan King James Version Commentary. The two volumes in this set can be purchased separately or as a bundle:

The Zondervan KJV Commentary is based on the best-selling Zondervan KJV Study Bible. Study notes have been expanded by a group of conservative, evangelical scholars from a wide range of denominations to encompass the two volumes of commentary. Includes verse-by-verse exposition that is based on the King James Version text.

Also available for use with PocketBible and MyBible is the NIV Bible Study Commentary from Zondervan. This is a one-volume commentary designed to be a companion to your reading of the New International Version (NIV) Bible. It is more of a quick reference resource rather than an in-depth study tool. Valuable when you want to get an overview rather than diving deep into a passage.
