    Scholarly. Useful for Catholics and protestants.

    Excellent. The format is a bit scholarly. Except for the history books (Genesis - 2 Kings) the biblical books are organized in probable order of authorship. Example: Isaiah 1-39 is between Hosea and Micah (correct order). Isaiah 40-66 is between Ezekiel and Haggai.

    The presentation is a bit too brief for an in-depth study; but it's very good for a first dig and is more scholarly than a typical single-volume commentary. Example: the study on the Psalms has a lot of useful introductory material. I have noticed the typical Psalms introduction doesn't exist in one-volume commentaries. If you want to really get into the Psalms, you'll need a separate commentary.

    It is a Catholic commentary; so you can expect a few Catholic leanings; but they are either obvious or the writers avoid doctrinalizing. On Matthew 16:19, for example, is this: "God shall bind and loose what Peter binds and looses. This verse gives enormous authority to Peter." The writer stops well short of connecting Peter to the papacy.
