I use the Holman Concise Bible Commentary so much more than I expected! It's a great help in personal study and I recommend it to the older youth and young adults I teach, as well. There is just enough information on historical context, original language, etc. when needed and it's written in such a way (well, concise!) that it is meaty without being overwhelming for the layperson. Great resource. I find the feature articles, maps and charts to be really helpful, too.

Often times many commentaries go over the readers head or try to be too academic. This one is a clear and simple tool for the bible student. Also has great articles on key topics and great charts to clarify doctrinal positions a good buy for anyone.
