    Each section begins with a few simple comments on the passage at hand which help you to get a grasp of the flow of the passage followed by brief interaction with some other commentaries. For instance in the section on Matthew 13 there is some discussion of the way that Davies and Allison (ICC) and with Wenham.In the current section of Matthew 13 he addresses first a few cogent and not overly dense paragraphs relating to the interpretation of parables stating, "Parables are indeed allegories, but they must not be allegorized. Their imagery must be understood in terms of their own ancient historical and literary conventions, not in terms of extraneous categories superimposed upon them by allegorizers. Since the imagery of Jesus' parables is drawn from first-century Palestine, an understanding of the historical context is crucial. It is also important to note the literary context. At times, the preceding context provides the key since the parabolic imagery corresponds to key characters and issues in the narrative." (p182)Following that preparatory statement we have section of brief interpretation preceding the exposition of the section. Altogether the full commentary on a given pericope is brief and easy to read. There is no (or very little) Greek embedded in the commentary.It is not an exegetical commentary but rather strives to live by it's purpose of, "...helping teachers, pastors, students, and lay people understand every thought contained in the Bible." (p vii)Overall it seems a good commentary if a little brief. But I believe that it fulfills it's purpose and strikes it target audience of the end user of scripture rather than the scholar. There are plenty of commentaries to be had out there some having more or less depth than others. This one at least doesn't waste it's brevity and succeeds in quickly answering the question, "What does this mean?"
