Two things I found particularly impressive about the book:
1. Piper engages a wide variety of "Arminian" interpretations of the passage, many of which immediately fall apart when the reader takes a moment to think about how they would fit into Paul's overall argument, but he (Piper) does so without the rancor and pettiness that so often characterizes those types of discussions.
2. Although reformed, "Calvinist" doctrines are often viewed as serious and sometimes depressing philosophical and Biblical arguments, Piper expounds Paul's argument in a way that is markedly uplifting and God-glorifying.
All in all, this is perhaps the best book of Biblical exposition of a passage that I have ever read. I would highly recommend it to intelligent readers of any theological leaning.
