    This commentary is very good and sometimes offers insight not noticed by either myself or other commentators. The quality of commentary is nearly identical (but different authors) with the HarperCollins commentary. I expect the theology to have more of a Wesleyan slant (because it is published by Abbingdon Press) but I haven't yet noticed such a slant. The comments are a bit brief for my taste. Yes, I am asking a lot from a one-volume commentary.

    I have been using the multi-volume Interpreter Bible since my college days in the 1950's. In my opinion it is the "gold standard" of Bible commentaries. But it is surely not portable. The One-Volume version is much more usable, and it's content is just as adequate as the multi-volume version for most situations. This is a serious reference for serious students of the Bible. Highly recommended.

Q: doctrinal positions? What are the core doctrines?the millennium?salvation? (faith alone?)

A: This commentary is largely ecumenical as it's contributors are scholars from Catholic, Lutheran, Main Line, and Evangelical church traditions. The goal of this edition is be representative of these diverse traditions rather than to hold the contributors to a "restrictive conformity", so doctrine will differ accordingly.
