Don't leave it on your bookshelf to collect dusk. This commentary is pretty thin. Read it, absorb it, and then may be put it on the bookshelf for reference purpose.
Craig Keener has done an amazing job of bringing out the main point of each pericope in the book of Romans. That was the purpose of the commentary, to give the big picture. Amazingly enough, while showing the big picture, Keener still brings out many details.
Should the apparent (though not real) paucity of material disturb the reader, Keener extensively annotates and references other scholarly works. He also gives an extensive bibliography. In fact, the book is worth its cost just for the notes and bibliography.
The strong point of this commentary is that it addresses the big picture of Romans while doing so, not in a simplistic way; but in a simple way. There is depth to this book, yet it is a profound simplicity. That is a good thing, because the book is good for scholars, academics, pastors, and the so-called average reader. It is accessible to all.
The one negative that I must mention is the binding. For a book that will be used as a reference and will be on someone's desk, the binding is very poor. The printer seemed to have tried to economize on the glue that is used at the spine. Because of this the pages easily pull loose and come out. I hope that this was an anomaly that is unique to my copy.
Other than the issue with the binding, I highly recommend this commentary.
