Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent commentary set written by professors from Dallas Theological Seminary. Based on the NIV text, the commentary is brief and to the point. This commentary is especially good if you want to cut to the chase and see what a particular passage or verse means without wading through a lot of irrelevant background or scholarly information. The explanations are very clear and easy to understand. Being an expositional commentary, it is ideally suited for laypeople who have limited technical knowledge of Hebrew and Greek. However, pastors and seminary students will find this helpful as well, since it is so clearly written.

I liked the organization of the commentary. It offers a very helpful introduction and outline of the book. Then it provides verse by verse commentary. I also liked some of the charts that went along with the particular book. For example, in the book of Revelation, it offers a helpful chart "7 Beatitudes in Revelation." These helpful charts are included throughout both the O.T. and N.T. volumes.

The commentators strongly hold to a conservative, evangelical position and hold to the complete inerrancy of Scripture. The prophetic books (esp. Daniel and Revelation) are interpreted according to the premillennial dispensationalist viewpoint; the commentators hold to the pretribulational Rapture and to the futurist, literal understanding of the Book of Revelation. If you hold to a different position (such as amillennial or postmillennial view) you would most likely not agree with the commentary, esp. that of Daniel and Revelation. The authors also believe that the miraculous gifts have ceased with the completion of the canon and the death of the apostles.

Format: Hardcover
Walvoord and Zuck's two-volume commentary is an excellent resource for the Bible preacher, teacher, scholar, or student.
Packed full of pertinent information for each Bible book, the typical format for a particular is as follows: 1) Introduction (including: historical setting, characteristics, audience the book is addressed to, author and date, historical proof for the book, and the book's purpose), 2) Detailed outline of the book, and 3) Commentary on the book.
While the book lacks the number of maps and charts of other commentaries, the authors have produced a well-written and detailed commentary that will benefit anyone: pastor preparing a sermon, teacher preparing a lesson, or student or unbeliever wanting to learn more about the Bible.
A highly recommened resouce!

Format: Hardcover
I purchased the electronic version of this book (saves space and money). It does not have the depth of a single bible book commentary and hence why my Life and Let of Paul II professor rejected me using this commentary as a credible source on my Romans exegetical paper.

But for any standard single volume commentary this is the best of the best that I have used at least. The LANTC commentary is very limited with its depth (because it focuses too much on application) while this commentary digs a bit deeper into the text.

Mark 9:48 is a very complex passage to understand for many, as few understand what the "worm" is symbolic for. Some believe that worms will literally eat up unbelievers for all of eternity, and others believe that the "worm" is symbolic for a humans internal soul.

This commentary gave me allot more depth to the passage (not as much as a single book commentary) but it did well for being a single volume bible commentary. The LANTC commentary offered less than a paragraph of commentary on this verse.

So overall I strongly reccommend this commentary. But sadly the sad state of the church is in decay. Many are not interested in these types of commentaries, since many would rather not study the bible in depth. Those who go to bible college or seminary do study in depth, and its sad that the in depth studying stops after graduation for many christians.

But for the educated and those with a deep hunger for Gods word, I strong encourage you to purchase this. If you lack the physical space, you can always buy the electronic version online.

Format: Hardcover
As a Christian with slight Dispensational leanings, I found this commentary very helpful. This commentary is written by a collection of Dallas Theological Seminary professors. The writings are concise and plain, yet they cover a wealth of information. They delve into the difficult topics of today, such as authorship of the Pentateuch and literal versus allegorical prophetic interpretation. Each book's commentary begins with a study of the authorship, date, audience, theme and purpose. Then an outline of the book is given. Many charts are added to help give deeper understanding, and are not too difficult for the layperson nor too minimal for the theologian to benefit from. The format of the writing gives a summary title for a passage and then discusses it, rather than going verse-by-verse or splitting up the context. For a small-volume commentary set, this is a superb contribution. I am very glad to have added it to my library, and plan to continue using it throughout my studies.
