I. Howard Marshall is always someone you can count on to produce a top-notch commentary. This one on the Johannine Epistles is a fine example of commentary which is useful on all sorts of levels. The NICNT format allows for in depth scholarly research to be presented, but not in a way which bogs down the commentary for pastors and lay readers. Much of the technical data is moved to footnotes (unlike the WBC for example) making the body smooth, and effective. Though almost 40 years old now, this is still among the best available commentaries on the Johannine epistles.

A solid commentary that handles issues with grace and humility like few commentators do. Positing answers where they are needed, Marshall yet keeps his responses somewhat brief, which is something of a double-edged sword. He takes a backdoor approach to sequence in tackling 2 and 3 John first before diving into 1 John which is commendable. All in all a good commentary done in great style and approach.
