Personally I have and use commentaries by Matthew Henry and Walter Elwell. There are many other good ones available. It's a good idea to use several. Also helpful to have a couple of Bible Dictionaries and especially a Vine's Expository Dictionary of Greek Words.
BestCommentaries.com has collected these scholarly reviews and averaged them along with reviews from other ministries like John Piper's Desiring God Ministries, R. C. Sproul's Ligonier Ministries, and the Denver Seminary Journal as well as users of the site. The individual reviews are still extremely valuable, but together they can help ible students at all levels to make good, informed decisions about which commentaries they should purchase.
Of course, scores and ratings alone cannot determine the best choices for an individual pastor or student, but we hope the combined resources available through this site points them in the right direction.
You might also find it interesting to see how the King James Version of the Bible came to be translated by king James, and the rules that King James King gave them. The Men Behind the KJV by Gustavus S. Paine.
Reading the gospels in chronological order in a Harmony of the Gospels is very insightful also.
