Peter Craigie had even less space to deal with than Baker did, something like half as many pages, and the Daily Study Bible series requires him to include the biblical text, which Baker doesn't do. For that reason he had to choose very carefully what to talk about. He did an admirable job. The commentary is suitable for devotional reading, and unlike many volumes in this series it really is suitable for that due to its more favorable attitude toward the authenticity of the text than some other writers in this series would have. Craigie raises the right sorts of theological questions. I was particularly impressed at his treatment of the justification by faith issue in ch.2, which avoids a kind of disjunctive thinking that I found in Robertson (who wants to remove any sense of faithfulness justifying, thinking that to contradict justification by faith). See the comments on my longer review of Robertson for more on that issue. You don't see most of Craigie's exegesis, but he does explain some of his reasoning. It's much thinner in argument and explanation than would be ideal even for a popular-level commentary, but Craigie's volumes in this series are some of the best in it because he was so good at choosing what would be best to focus on. It's inexpensive and short enough that there's no reason not to read it in addition to whatever else you're going to read. [Full Review]

Craigie had a gift of taking a text and in a short and concise way giving very insightful interpretation and then letting that lead into great devotional/application thoughts. Craigie's volumes in the DSB series are highly recommended for the pastor and average layman just wanting to study the Bible.
