Of the modern Biblical commentaries I've read, Hahn's is among the best. Most modern commentaries begin with the historical-critical assumption that the Old Testament is a historical fabrication with little spiritual significance.

This first offering of the Old Testament canon from the Ignatius Catholic Study Bible continues in the great tradition of the New Testament booklets in the same series (now compiled into one volume).

Each volume of the series begins with a general introduction to the entire series. This section covers Catholic Church teaching on inspiration and inerrancy, biblical authority, the senses of Scripture, criteria for biblical interpretation, and using the study guide. A great overview that is required

I was very impressed with this. The notes gave a fascinating insight into Biblical evidence for some of the Catholic doctrines, which was just what I was looking for. They were clearly enough explained for me to understand, coming from an Anglican background - I'll definitely be reading more of Scott Hahn's work.
