Because of the inclusion of the Deuterocanonicals, the good release progress implementation, the maintenance it has received (latest OT compiled is version 2.3 and NT version 1.2), and for the inclusion of discussion of the NIV84, it would deserve five stars. What You'd expect from the set is there.
But the inclusion of the NRSV as contrast (which had potential to be a really good version but was messed up with gender-neutral language and lots of bias (which is partially the same bias in a certain even more biased later version also based on the RSV but released for the first time in 2001)), the too many overviews (which You'd appreciate though if this is one of only a few commentaries You have) and the slight inconsistency in that some of the less important or more simple books of the Bible are not dealt with from all angles of the format, means a four star rating from me.
But the value for money is truly EXCELLENT!! No-where else do You get a complete scholarly coverage with some ...

Simply the finest commentary I have ever encountered. I wish everyone could own it. The reflections are insightful and the commentary is informative without going into a depth that is off putting. It may not be for everyone, but the number of outstanding scholars from many different backgrounds always amazes me. I would describe the commentary over all as moderate (the many top scholars from various theological backgrounds is aimed at an ecumenical audience meaning generally you will not see anything radical from any side of the theological spectrum). If it were the only commentary I owned I would feel lucky and feel at no serious disadvantage. This commentary covers the entire Alexandrian canon as has been traditionally used in the Roman Catholic Church, making it a fine choice for not only Protestants but also Catholics. And having used it for over 20 years I can say it makes a very solid base for starting out study in any section of the Bible and continues to be a most valued ...
