The Gold Medallion Award–winning Expositor’s Bible Commentary is a major contribution to the study and understanding of the Scriptures. Providing pastors and Bible students with a comprehensive and scholarly tool for the exposition of the Scriptures and the teaching and proclamation of their message, this 12-volume reference work has become a staple of seminary and college libraries and pastors’ studies worldwide.
The Expositor’s Bible Commentary (EBC) uses the New International Version (NIV) for its English text, but also refers freely to other translations and to the original languages. Each book of the Bible has, in addition to its exposition, an introduction, outline, and bibliography. Notes on textual questions and special problems are correlated with the expository units; transliteration and translation of Semitic and Greek words make the more technical notes accessible to readers unacquainted with the biblical languages. In matters where marked differences of opinion exist, commentators, while stating their own convictions, deal fairly and irenically with opposing views.
If you are eager to get a complete commentary set, I think the Expositor’s Bible Commentary is probably the best of the bunch for your money.

One would have to search long and far for a single book offering a more comprehensive survey of biblical introduction and background than is provided in Volume 1. Topics ... are given succinct and comprehensible treatment by evangelical scholars well chosen for their respective assignments.

. . . a roaring success. Both form and style contribute to readability, and the scholarship is sound without being pedantic or tedious.
This volume [Volume 11] continues the high standard of volume 10. While drawing on the resources of contemporary scholarship, [the contributors] distinguish hypothesis from fact, conjecture from truth. On controversial items a fair presentation of the position of others accompanies a clear statement of the contributor quote s own view. This volume as well as volume 10 should prove extremely useful to the parish pastor.
