I like this series for what it offers a preacher, and I found the insights here on "bridging contexts" to often be quite valuable. Unlike Darrell Bock on Luke (in the same series), I didn't find McKnight's thoughts on "original meaning" to be as compelling, and like Bock I sometimes felt McKnight's "contemporary significance" reflections missed the mark. Another difficulty I had was that my outline of 1 Peter didn't match McKnight's, so often I was jumping around or poking into half a chapter. A ...more
I enjoy reading the NIV application series commentaries for help with my sermon prep, and I always enjoy the thoughts of Scot McKnight. This was a good marriage of the two. It walks the fine line reasonably well between being scholarly enough, but easily read and applicable at the same time. Other commentaries are more scholarly (Karen Jobes), while some others are quicker reads (Gundry) but this was helpful in both regards. Well worth the time to read.

I've used this series in the past (Luke by D. Bock and Isaiah by J. Oswalt) and find them very helpful in sermon prep. Just starting into this message series for Fall 2014, but finding this one not as "go to" as the others I've used. I'll update as I go.
Disappointing: overemphasis on application without a through and the complete exegesis of the text.
