Really excellent introduction and commentary to an abstruse text. Unlike some commentaries, it struck a nice balance between informative academic information and discussion and spiritual interpretation. Some of the quotes from other commentators were insightful and apposite without weighing down this commentary with recondite and inconclusive academic arguments. A very useful tool for the general Christian reader, eschewing the more fanciful readings of certain religious organizations and leaders by placing the work firmly in its historical context without losing sight of its spiritual message and how it links in with the rest of the NT (and OT too). Highly recommended as a starting-point or reference tool for those studying this text.
