NICOT/NT have been my "go to" commentaries for many years. I have used many of them, first as a student, then as a prof. I consider them solid, quality, trustworthy, (theologically) middle-of-the-road
classic commentaries. The authors combine historical background with solid word studies and good exegesis. They don't tend to break new ground, but they also avoid outrageous and avant-garde theories. Think
of them as a more comprehensive Tyndale Commentary set.

By "classic," I mean that these two sets do not provide much in the way of cultural background (like ZIBBCOT/NT) or contemporary application (like NIVAC). These are more recent trends. The NICOT/NT is also not as technical as Hermeneia, Keil and Delitzche, NIGTC, or even the UBS Translator's Handbooks—NT. It is more readable than any of them.
