The original title read: "Annotations Upon all the Books of the Old and New Testament: This Third, above the First and Second, Edition so enlarged, As they make an entire Commentary on the Sacred Scriptures: The like never before published in English. Wherein the Text is Explained, Doubts Resolved, Scripture Parallel'd, and Various Readings observed; By the Labour of certain Learned Divines thereunto appointed, and therein employed, As is expressed in the Preface."
Just knowing, as Barker points out, that this commentary was "prepared mostly by Westminster divines, by order of Parliament, at the time of the Assembly" (Puritan Profiles, p. 37), certainly bodes well for the level of scholarship it contains.
Brook calls this a "useful work" and says of its authors that "several of them were celebrated puritans" (Lives of the Puritans, vol. 3, p. 221n). Spurgeon comments that it "contains valuable remarks" and that "the work is probably less esteemed than it should be" (Commenting and Commentaries).
