Of all the currently available commentaries on Habakkuk, I have found Palmer's the most theologically insightful and the best overall in addressing the difficulties that accompany the book. It is good, not as technical as some others (Patterson, McComisky), yet faithful and edifying. It has probably been the most helpful resource I have turned to in writing my own commentary on Habakkuk (Teleioteti, expected late 2016, 2017).
