Of particular note is the original language text, given on the left-hand pages, providing the resources for the language scholar to make the translations him/herself. This is of value, because Fr. Tanner's English translation is a bit "modern"; succumbing unnecessarily to the lure of the "inclusive language translation".
Leaving this aside, the research and scholarship is impeccable. These volumes should be on the shelves of any clergyman or academic -- regardless of denominational affiliation.
