A friend told me that these were available on E-sword, I was so glad to hear that, especially at such an affordable rate! These are such wonderful helps.
NICOT excellent value (1/12/2021)
Reviewed by (Terence Clarke, Sandy, Bedfordshire, UK) - New International Commentary of the Old Testament Set, for e-Sword
This series (NICOT) purchased together with NICNT at about £150 was excellent value when compared with probably well over £1000 for the hard copies. Although I would probably have preferred the hard copies but the cost, not to mention shelf space, would have been prohibitive. I have only used Hebrews so far but it works well and connects to the eSword scripture text accurately. I already have a number of hard copies of both NICNT and NICOT and find them very useful and comprehensive. Altogether a good deal.
Great commentary, great value. Also includes Zechariah! (Boda, 2016) (8/18/2020)

Really pleased with this. Includes Boda's 2016 volume on Zechariah in addition to the titles listed!
New Int Comm - OT (5/14/2020)
Reviewed by (roy held, Norman, OK) - New International Commentary of the Old Testament Set, for e-Sword
Wuest does a wonderful job of helping clarify meaning within the text. Well worth the investment, especially for those of us who read English only. A most helpful study aid deserving of inclusion in any basic bible reference set. A powerful tool for the e-Sword kit.
I downloaded quite a few of the premium bibles, dictionaries, commentaries and map-charts recently, including some sets. It will take time for me to assess most of them, but this particular help was useful "right out of the box."
Thank you, e-Sword and eStudySource for all you who put the excellence in e-Sword.

Exceptional Value Pastoral Commentary (10/19/2019)
Reviewed by (Ken Yeo, Orlando, FL) - New International Commentary of the Old Testament Set, for e-Sword
I was comtemplating whether I should use Esword or Logos as my primary sermon prepartion tool. This NIC OT and NC commentaries are one of the major reasons why I decided to use Esword. This is a quality pastoral commentary set, from evengelical perspective, with a fraction of the cost in comparison to logos. I like the commentary layout, the main body is easy to read and not too techinical in original languages. However if I want to know more, the references in the brackets in the body of the commentary are handy. While there are free older commentaries on Esword, they are normally using older english and the layout in esword is often hard to follow. Many of these commentaries are a collections of many preachers and commentators, so there is lack of cohesion of the flow of the commentary. NIC OT and NT commentaries make my Esword a better tool. It makes me feel good that although Esword is free, this commentary increase the value of Esword tremendously. Highly recommended.

This is a very well written and researched set of commentaries. Some of the best Old Testament scholars have done a great job to balance the academic and the practical application of Scripture. To have such a resource available at a reasonable price is excellent.
Thoroughly faithful commentary (3/10/2019)

Over the years I have had recourse to work from the hard copies of this series. Way back even sat under the teaching of one of its authors. It is now a delight to have it as a part of e-sword, easy to read, and access when needed. A thoroughly thorough series.

My Experiences Using e-Sword resources (10/30/2018)
Reviewed by (Ronald C. Baker, Headland, Al) - New International Commentary of the Old Testament Set, for e-Sword
In most cases e-sword's resources have been invaluable; as a Pastor the commentaries available for free and purchase have been a great resources for ideas, illustrations, and explaining clearly some very difficult passages. The ability to copy & paste into a document is an enormous asset.
The greatest asset is it's free. Donations are accepted but not required.This has been a blessing because at times finances were tight for some of us pastors in small churches. Thank You e-Sword for your Faithful ministry in supplying these needed resources to us servants of the Lord.Your reward will be from the Lord Jesus when He says Well Done Thy Good and Faithful Servant, Enter into the Joy of the Lord. God Bless you All and your continued ministry. In Christ a fellow servant RCB
Great Commentary Collection (10/30/2018)
Reviewed by (Bruce Shauger, Cedar Rapids, IA) - New International Commentary of the Old Testament Set, for e-Sword
This is a very thorough collection at an unbelievable price. There is no guarantee any collection will have all great books but the NICOT has a very scholarly collection with few books that are not excellent. You won't go wrong if you are looking for a complete set.
Great Scholarly Commentary (12/15/2017)

This is an in-depth scholarly commentary. I have found it to be an excellent resource when you want to go very deep into the text and of course it’s also a valuable resource if you are enrolled in formal bible education.

If you are into preaching/teaching or even desire to know the Bible more deeply, this is a must-have resource. Very easy to use in E-Sword. And the price is a lot less compared to the hardcopy versions or even other software versions. I purchased both the OT and NT set.
A classic and very valuable resource (12/15/2017)
Reviewed by (John Barrs, Liss, Hampshire, UK) - New International Commentary of the Old Testament Set, for e-Sword
The two commentary sets NICNT and NICOT are invaluable for all study projects. Of course, nothing is more important than interacting with the actual text but the insights given in these commentary sets certainly help bring the text to life. I would not like to say "essential" but if you need helps then these are essential helps

Great commentary at a a great price (2/9/2017)
Reviewed by (Winston Shu, SUGAR LAND, TX) - New International Commentary of the Old Testament Set, for e-Sword
The NICOT/NT series has been a blessing to my Bible study and sermon preparation. It is not too technical yet contains the necessary information I need to know. In most cases it addresses the questions I might have. I have owned and used some hard copies of the NICOT series. At this price, it allows me to collect the whole set.
I use eSword everyday. With this set at my finger tips, it adds to my resources in a convenient way.
A Great Deal! (2/9/2017)
Reviewed by (Keith Throop, Bloomington, IL) - New International Commentary of the Old Testament Set, for e-Sword
As a rule I prefer not to buy commentary sets, especially by multiple authors, since the work is generally inconsistent and one ends up with a number of good volumes mixed in with bad ones. The NICOT is an exception, as is the NICNT. thankfully, both sets are offered by eStudySource, and both sets are worth the price, especially the terrific prices offered here. No e-Sword user should pass them up.

Worth your investment (12/23/2016)
Reviewed by (Rodolfo Sabater, Singapore, Singapore, Singapore) - New International Commentary of the Old Testament Set, for e-Sword
I immediately purchased NICOT when it was offered by estudysource.com for three reasons: (1) It will complete my already purchased NICNT which is also available with estudysource.com; (2) It is worth your investment for spiritual growth and you will never regret purchasing this awesome commentary; (3) It is a lot (and I mean, A LOT) cheaper than those who offer the same package on different software. With this offer, I can appreciate how solid and scholarly the commentaries are written, and gives a deeper insight on the verses that I am studying, even on a tight budget.
I am now more inspired to study and learn about what God wants to reveal to me by His words, and these commentaries (NICOT and NICNT) surely is a wonderful tool to help me on my journey.

This set has long been known to be an excellent asset to anyone studying the Bible in depth. As an Adult Sunday School teacher, I have purchased several of these books to aid my study over the years. It is really great to have all of them as an e-resource and connected directly to various Bible versions. I love the E-Sword platform and its versatility and now to have all the NICOT book studies literally at my fingertips...Heavenly! Thanks for continuing to add exemplary resources to this platform.
