“The St. Andrew’s Expositional Commentary series will be welcomed throughout the world. It promises to have all of Sproul’s hallmarks: clarity and liveliness, humor and pathos, always expressed in application to the mind, will, and affections. Sproul’s ability to focus on the big picture, his genius of never saying too much, leaving his hearers satisfied yet wanting more, never making the Word dull, are all present in these expositions. May they nourish God’s people well and serve as models of the kind of ministry for which we continue to hunger.”
—Sinclair B. Ferguson, Professor of Systematic Theology, Redeemer Seminary, Dallas, Texas
“Sproul, well-known as a master theologian and extraordinary communicator, now shows that he is a powerful, insightful, helpful expository preacher. This collection of sermons is of great value for churches and Christians everywhere.”
—W. Robert Godfrey, President and Professor of Church History, Westminster Seminary California
“Sproul is a legend in our time. His preaching has held us in awe for half a century, and these pages represent the fruit of his latest exposition, coming as they do at the very peak of his abilities and insights. I am ecstatic at the prospect of reading the St. Andrew’s Expositional Commentary series. It represents Reformed theology on fire, delivered from a pastor’s heart in a vibrant congregation of our time. Essential reading.”
—Derek W. H. Thomas, John E. Richards Professor of Systematic and Practical Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary; Minister of Teaching, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, MS
“Since stepping into the pulpit of St. Andrew’s and committing himself to the weekly discipline of biblical exposition, this noted preacher has demonstrated a rare ability to explicate and apply God’s Word. I wholeheartedly recommend the St. Andrew’s Expositional Commentary series to all who long to know the truth better and experience it more deeply in a life-changing fashion. Here is an indispensable tool for digging deeper into God’s Word. This is a must-read for every Christian.”
—Steven J. Lawson, Director of Doctor of Ministry Program and Professor of Preaching, The Master’s Seminary; President and Founder, OnePassion Ministries; author, The Kind of Preaching God Blesses
“How exciting! Thousands of us have long been indebted to Sproul the teacher, and now, through the St. Andrew’s Expositional Commentary series, we are indebted to Sproul the preacher, whose sermons are thoroughly biblical, soundly doctrinal, warmly practical, and wonderfully readable. This series of volumes is an absolute must for every Reformed preacher and church member who yearns to grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ Jesus. Tolle lege, and buy these volumes for your friends.”
—Joel R. Beeke, president, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan

The structure of the commentary is just like that of Sproul's commentary on Romans. Each chapter begins with the scripture(s) in view, then Sproul's commentary begins. I think it's important to mention that each chapter is basically a transcript from his sermons he delivers to his congregation at St. Andrews church, so you won't be exposed to overly technical expositions of the scripture. Now, I don't want you to think by my saying that Sproul doesn't dive deep every now and then, he does, but he doesn't get into the greek and hebrew etymologies as much as other commentaries, so that's what I mean by he doesn't get very "technical" in this commentary. By these being transcripts of his sermons, you'll get the pastor's heart in this commentary.
So, overall, I really like this commentary and will use it again and again in my own personal study and have began using it in my small group study. I highly recommend this commentary. I agree with John Piper when he said, "One of the unique things about Ligonier is that you have a philosopher who is manifestly devoted to the Bible. When R.C. talks, there is a philosophical rigor and awareness. Yet, it is there in service of exegesis, so that you get a series on Romans, John, Acts, 1&2 Peter. I want to celebrate this allegiance to the Bible." He said that at the 2011 Ligonier National Conference.
Sproul writes/speaks (since this book is basically a collection of his sermons) with clarity, conciseness, and humor (at times). This is an easy to read evangelical commentary that is great for personal study and Bible study preparation.
If you want a more indepth commentary try Jobes (Baker) or Davids (NICNT).
