This commentary is based on the NIV which is a modern and reasonably scholarly translation.
This commentary is limited by having to fit in one volume, thus there is not as much analysis of the Greek and Hebrew as one might like. The commentary is fairly conservative though not literalist.
It is much superior to Wycliffe, but falls below the New Interpreter's Bible. If you don't have $600 for the New Interpreter's Bible or access to it at your church library, the New International Bible Commentary is not a bad choice.
