I’ve come to love Stott’s “message of” commentaries, having used them for classes on Romans (amazingly helpful) and the Letters of John (considerably weaker). He knows when to dive a little deeper into a subject, when to bring in just the right amount of background or context, and when to gloss over something to keep the main point clear. His theological judgment is, with a couple of fairly well known exceptions, quite sound. Where Stott excels all other expositors is in breaking the material down into a clear outline, with units of thought flowing smoothly for teaching or preaching. He usually makes these divisions with deep insight, and even when he forces things a little bit, it’s obvious that he’s doing so to deliver the best possible learning experience. [Full Review]
