Mounce, Robert H. The Book of Revelation. NICNT. Eerdmans, 1997.

One of my favorite commentaries! I don't hold to pre or postmillennialism (this book's tags). However, the amount of material I would disagree with on those subjects could probably be confined to less than a dozen pages. Out of four commentaries I read, this was a joy; far and away my favorite. Some commentators seem to write just to fill up space, but certainly not Mounce who covers so much without wasting any space. I would've liked to see some more interaction with the OT, but I received Beale's commentary recently and I'm sure it will fill that gap.

I give it a 3 merely for the references. Overall I disagree with many of Conzelmann's conclusions, but typical Hermeneia.
Murphy, Roland E. Ecclesiastes. WBC. Thomas Nelson, 1992.

I am glad I read this commentary, but it left more to be desired. Reading cover to cover though, Murphy brought out many excellent points. (Please forgive me. I don't know how to put half stars as I've seen others use, would've been 3.5 stars.)
Wenham, Gordon J. Numbers. TOTC. InterVarsity Press, 2008.

Outstanding! Numbers became a favorite book of mine after reading this. I underline what I believe to be insightful points as I read. My copy is saturated with underlining.
Durham, John I. Exodus. WBC. Thomas Nelson, 1987.

I read this cover to cover along with Fretheim's Interpretation commentary. This was great in answering the more technical questions. Simply a solid commentary in the WBC series.

Brilliant in its purpose. This is the first time I had read anything of Fretheim's. I don't always agree with him, but he constantly makes me think generally yet deeply which is what I treasure most in a commentary.
