This is partially a review of this particular commentary and partly a general review on the set. I used the Genesis commentary, as well as a bit of the Exodus one, in teaching a Sunday School class over the year. I preferred the Genesis commentary here over a second one I had purchased as a single volume on Genesis, finding this to be more helpful and fair to the text an at the same time being more concise.
However, as many of you may be reading this review with a mind to purchase the set, I can say that I'm very satisfied with my purchase of it. Every portion of the set has been quite helpful, and this is an amazingly simple and inexpensive way to assemble a good library of commentaries on the entire Bible. Obviously the commentaries are not as thorough as one may find in other series, such as the excellent (although not yet quite complete) "New International Commentary on the New Testament" or a similar series. However, for most Christians who teach or lead small groups in their churches, this set can serve as a great resource to get started with, and one that can easily be supplimented with specific volumes that treat a book of the Bible in greater depth as those books are needed. Additionally, this resource can be more useful than a larger volume in situations where one is interested in looking at a few chapters of scripture at a time, or where one just needs to understand what a verse or two might mean. Thanks to the very clear and practical verse by verse organization, it's a terrific tool to do just that.
