A bland Romans/Galatians commentary

I've been recently flipping through a somewhat bland commentary on Romans and Galatians by a handful of different commentators, and wanted to jot down a few thoughts.  This isn't an overly good commentary, but some of the images and illustrations are interesting.  The book strays away from being a substantial or satisfying systematic theology, but rather offers a glossy surface overview of these two books, with the occasional Arminian flavoring (I noticed that two of the writers were associated with Fuller Theological Seminary, and its interesting [providential] that I was just listening to a Mark Dever interview with Wayne Grudem talking about his experience with Fuller and the downward slide of how this particular school moved away from Biblical inerrancy.  As another completely unrelated note, Grudem also mentioned the site on The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, which I did not know about previously but which looks to be a wealth of good information, so I'm going to add this to my Delicious links and check it out later.  Here's the link to the Grudem interview)

Anyhow, not much more to say about this Romans/Galatians Zondervan commentary.  Not sure how or why I got this, but to summarize: the content isn't overly deep (sidebar blurs about the "Global warming"issue?) the theology is a little wonky, but the images are interesting.
