I own over two thousand biblical commentaries. The most critical point of any commentary is what it expresses as the salient points of any text. The Moody commentary is concise and gets the major points out quickly and efficiently. If you are a Sunday School teacher there are great "nuggets" or spiritual truths here you can share with your class. If you are a layperson you will profit greatly from detailed study. I am not usually a fan of single volume commentaries but this is a tremendously valuable work for any library.
