Barber differentiates himself from other such books by spending more time discussing how to choose a good commentary rather giving long lists of recommended commentaries. For each book of the Bible, he recommends 3-4 commentaries that are very conservative and in the expositional to devotional range. Barber’s book is much shorter and less comprehensive than others in the field, but it may be valuable for beginning ministers or those who don’t want to spend time wading through more academic works.
