This commentary is fairly basic. Whilst generally Conservative, I feel he gives too much precedence to the theoretical Deuteronomist viewpoint, which I find can detract from the original intent of the message of the text.
The "Original Meaning" sections are basic with slightly more reflection on the meaning of the passage in the "Bridging Contexts" sections. The "Contempory Significance" sections are used as a series of "essays" on contempory issues facing the western church, which whilst often good in themselves, did not always seem very relevant to the passage under discussion.
The author generally takes very large chunks of 2, 3 or even 4 chapters in length for each section. This isn't always a bad thing as it sometimes helps to show an underlying theme which can be hidden by chapter divisions but I found the "chunks" were usually too large to cover in any very meaningful depth.
I read this alongside Dale Ralph Davis's excellent (5 star) commentaries in the Christian Focus series and the contrast was striking.
