I have Sanday and Headlam on Romans. I got it after reading Custer’s comment in Tools. I was always under the impression that the “Critical” in the series title was a key, so I have steered away from most of these. However, I have found S & H to have good comments on the Gk as I go along through Romans.
Do you have any comments on the theology, good or bad, of this series?

The theology for most of these is not going to be conservative. The men who contributed to the series tended to be liberal.
Nevertheless, I have found Plummer on Luke helpful, and I’ve heard good things about his Corinthians commentaries. Burton on Galatains has a discusssion of sarx worth consulting
(I forget at the moment whether I ended up agreeing or disagreeing with him).
Others that I’ve seen referenced often are Frame on Thessalonians, Charles on Revelation, and Bigg on the Petrines and Jude.
Steveson in his commentary on Proverbs often spars with Toy on Proverbs.

The value of these (NT) commentaries is not primarily for their theology (though some are useful there as well)—use them for what they’re best for: helpful discussion of the Greek text. Few commentaries work at this level and the more help you get here will be a major boost in grappling with what the text itself actually says. (I’m not commenting on the ot vols here–I’m a *Nt* prof! 🙂
