When i was training i was fortunate enough to have access to a library with a good selection of resources. While researching for an assignment i used a number of commentaries and found the wbc volume to strike a chord with me. Since then i tried to get the set on cd but could never find it at an attractive price. During one of the accordance sales I was fortunate enough to get this and since then it has been my go to resource. While i accept that within any series there are going to be strong and less strong volumes, i have never been disapointed with this set.
After buying other comnentary volumes i have come to realise that it is the way that each volume is structured that i find so useful. Each passage has the authors translation, then there are notes on particular words within the passage. This is followed by a section on the structure of the passage and then there is a final section on the authors thoughts on the passage. For me, this structure is helpful as i can quickly go to the part of the commentary notes i am after. I find this in particular contrast to commentaries in the pillar or nicot series where the information isnt structured so i have to read a lot of material that isn’t necessarily relevant to what im looking for. I hope that the missing volumes will be written one day.
