Yes, simple and to the point but you get lots of infomation without being overloaded. I spent 3 hours in a bible bookstore comparing different bible commentarys and chose this one. From what I could see only one other really gave it a run for the money. At the end of each book of the bible there are questions for reflection and sources for further study. Has 56 feature articles, 40 charts, and 19 maps throughout the book. For my personal use it seemed to be the best for me. Great book that is simple and straightforward.

A tool is known by its usefulness. Although it is "concise" in size, its usefulness remains high. I recommend it very much.

This commentary has just the right amount of information, in my opinion, for the average bible student. Not too little and not overload of information. It is not just a commentary of the books of the Bible, but of each chapter in each book. It is short and concise, like the Cliff notes I used in high school. This commentary does not take the place of reading the Bible, but it gives you a short summary of the chapter. It also gives you extra Scriptures to help your study go deeper than just the chapter you are reading. Very helpful, to me.

I've been wanting to find a Bible Commentary to supplement my readings as sometimes some passages are so difficult to understand, especially the Old Testament. This is a really neat book and it not only gives a short synopsis of the passages but explains the history behind each book. I didn't even realize before reading that some of the passages, eg. Chronicles and Samuels were so similar, just like the New Testament writings of the Apostles. Recommend for anyone who wants additional help in studying the Word.

Its not a detailed commentary, but its good. I have it as a quick desk-top reference source for my Holman Christian Standard Bible. The presentation is more of a section-by-section of a chapter -- like a handbook. It helps get the job done though.

It's Ok but found that often it doesn't have what I was looking for and a larger set of Commentaries actually were needed. If you are a serious Bible scholar this wouldn't likely not be what you want. For the causal studier it can give a good starting point.
