I only read Judges, so far. Very disappointing. Hate to sound rude, but if an author has nothing additional to add to the existing commentaries, maybe they shouldn't bother repeating already covered info. Just a thought.

I haven't used the Judges section much, but the Ruth section is pretty good. It's a bit too much of a face value reading, missing many of the narrative artistry and nuance.

Younger’s commentary is considered one of the stronger volumes of the NIV Application Commentary series. The strength of the series tends to be application ahead of original meaning, but Longman points out that in Younger’s case this is reversed so that the section dealing with contemporary significance is not as strong as it might have been.

Younger's volume on Judges and Ruth is one of the stronger contributions to the NIVAC series. The format of this series divides the comments on each section of text into Original Meaning, Bridging Contexts, and Contemporary Significance. This format tends to emphasize contemporary application, but Younger's comments are just as helpful in the Original Meaning section as they are in the other two. [Full Review]
