ipso facto3 Stars Out Of 5Poor design makes this otherwise excellent commentary very difficult to readMay 25, 2018ipso factoQuality: 3Value: 4Meets Expectations: 2I would give this at least 4 stars if it did not have one major flaw. The margins are very narrow so it is very difficult to read the text on the inside (spine) edges of the pages. You need to pull the book open further than normal to read it, and that is both annoying and bad for the binding. A great disappointment because other than that I love this commentary. The font is a bit small but clear and easy to read. Pages are not too thin and ghosting is minimal.
I think the average layman will find the content to be meaty, interesting, and thought-provoking. It is easy to understand and not overly scholarly. But if you have been reading systematic theologies and doing deep studies for 20 years then you might find there is nothing new or challenging presented. The commentary on each book is written by a different conservative evangelical author. The book intros are lengthy and detailed. Lots of text with some charts, tables, lists, etc.

I love how many pastors gave their input. They all agree with other commentaries I have read. These commentaries are very extensive.

jerryofthe5ws5 Stars Out Of 5Consult with the best of the best!November 27, 2017jerryofthe5wsQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Absolutely purchase a set of The Bible Knowledge Commentary OT & NT regardless of your theological persuasion. Why? Because it was produced by men who were passionately driven to master the content of Scripture and pass that on for students of Scripture. Most, if not all contributors come from the golden age of Dallas Theological Seminary, men who were committed to the consistently literal hermeneutic of Bible interpretation, men who avoided the temptation to speculate on the meaning of a passage or to spiritualize obvious literal statements. You will find within faithful interpretive results generated by men committed to the inerrancy of Scripture.
The Bible institute I graduated from routinely assigned reading from this commentary set. If I had to pare down my reference library to one or two bookcases, this 2-volume set would anchor what precious few commentaries I would keep. If this set were the only commentaries you could afford to buy for a year or two, you would be at no great loss until your next great purchase, 'Bible Believer's Commentary' by William MacDonald. The latter is the best single volume Bible commentary I've read produced by a single author; incredibly thoughtful at times.
May God bless your study of His Word.
