Solid introductory commentary that was readable and useful. I have struggled with some of the Tyndale Commentaries on the prophets that really became word by word studies or dove deep into running arguments with other commentaries. Here the introductions are simple and to the point about who, when, where and why. The commentaries were readable and useful especially on Habakkuk where the Scripture seemed rather confusing to a modern reader. The words were addressed where there was an issue with the text or meaning was vital, but generally, these commentaries were about the overall text and theology.

David Baker's Tyndale commentary lives up to everything this series intends. It's brief, but Baker uses his limited space wisely. He addresses many of the questions non-scholars might ask when reading the text. He deals with some of the more fundamental theological questions in a way many commentators won't, but he also deals with the more important of the historical and linguistic issues. He doesn't treat them in much depth, and there are less crucial issues that he doesn't treat at all that are interesting and worth looking into if you're preparing a Bible study or sermon, so this commentary shouldn't serve as the only or primary resource for something like that, but Baker is an enjoyable read, has a lot more than you'd expect in such a short treatment, and is probably second only to Robertson in terms of theological insight.
