Ross’ text is not a commentary per se but more of an exposition meant to help the preacher. He holds to a six-day creation and to Mosaic authorship. Instead of going verse-by-verse, he proceeds section-by-section in the way he recommends preaching the book. Keith Mathison calls it “an invaluable resource for expositors” and insists “if you are a pastor, you should not be without this book.” I have used this volume several times and have found it a very helpful aid.

Ross is a dispensationlist, not everybody's conviction

This commentary is very useful for the pastor. It is designed to help pastors think through different issues in each text and what that may bring them to for application and sermon material. I often found it helped me into the text more than some commentaries that were so thick with details about the text you soon lost the forest by examining all the trees. This commentary is highly recommended for the pastor and Bible study leader.

Although not technically a commentary, this volume by Ross is an invaluable resource for expositors. If you are a pastor, you should not be without this book. [Full Review]

Allen Ross has written an excellent guide to expositors who want to teach through the book of Genesis, called Creation and Blessing: A Guide to the Study and Exposition of Genesis. He doesn't see it as a commentary so much as an aid to thinking through how to teach the book, but a lot of commentating gets done along the way, and what I've read of it is indeed very helpful. Walton and Sailhamer are more up-to-date, but Allen is up to something a little different from either of them. Ross has a similar book on the exposition of Leviticus and a commentary in the EBC on Proverbs, which is on the verge of publication in its revised form as I write this. See also the forthcoming commentaries below for the upcoming CBC by Ross. [Full Review]
