    This review was written for The Baker Illustrated Bible Commentary.
    I bought this book after doing much research on the matter. I reasearched both OT as well as the NT editors, prior to buying the book. Afterall, I'd never want to purchase anything from a false Christian "teacher," or anyone that has a past history of both scriptural and/or Christian doctrinal error. First off, the book is massive. It weighs a ton and i was quite surprised by the heft of this book! It's as thick as an old "yellow pages" phone book, with beautiful photography of ancient Christian and biblical artifacts, locations and references. The paper used in the book is of high quality and the binding is excellent for today's standards. The graphics are superb and this leads me to the most important aspect of the book: the literary content and opinion. Afterall, all biblical "commentaries" are just human "opinions" in published "book form" on the biblical text themselves. The commentary in this book is extensive, but not overbearing. You could buy volumes of bible commentaries like the "Pulpit's Commentary" and spend 10 times the price. Or, you can spend the affordable money on this Baker's commentary and have an enriching, thought provoking and scholastically apt resource all in one volume and at the tips of your fingers. This book is best suited for the "intermediate" and "advanced " bible student, based on verbage used throughout as well as scholastic content. If you want to mine the bible for all its worth, this commentary is a must-have on anyone's desk. I compare this book to "Mathew Henry's" commentary and give this (Baker's) version the hand's down, winning grade. The book's commentary follows the order of the bible, chapter by chapter and almost verse-by-verse. The book is a great companion to a KJV, NKJV, NIV, ESV and NASB translations of the bible. So much information in this book all the while in one volume, makes this book a must have. The opinions and key points of the book are basically "short, sweet and to the point," and without missing any relevant core Christian values or historical biblical facts. This commentary is the best companion to anyone's "study bible.".

    I am very impressed with this commentary. Besides the commentary part, there are excellent photos, maps and other helps. My only problem, and it is my issue not the book's, is it is heavy. This is not a book you'd carry around in your purse. :) Just a great resource for me in my bible reading.
