Davids commentary is marked by precision. I found this commentary correcting me far more often than the others that I used as far as details and focus of the text. Davids is very familiar with Judaism and it's character as pertains to NT writings and is an expert on the Catholic epistles. Very much enjoyed his excursus on suffering in 1Peter and the NT. One will want this if available for teaching and preaching.

A great mid-level commentary. I would have liked a few more details on the Greek text, but this is a reliable, succinct, and reader-friendly volume. Ideal for pastors and seminarians. Davids is thoroughly engaged with secondary sources, and critical scholarship, but does still defend traditional, conservative conclusions regarding date and authorship.
Peter Davids' commentary has been somewhat overshadowed by the more recent work of Jobes, but it is still worth consulting. Like most of the NICNT volumes, it is solid and thorough without becoming inaccessible. [Full Review]
