I like it. It's a huge book though. But sometimes the patristic commentary isn't related at all, and the editor also has some notes from Scofield, who teaches a lot of dispensational heterodoxy. Mixed bag, but overall it's worth it, and it's so thick that it doubles as a weapon.

The whole book is available for free preview on Google Books:

Thanks for your comment Alveus, when you speak of dispensational heterodoxy (I apologize I am not familar with the phrase) what exactly should I be looking out for when I am reading this book?

Basically, dispensationalism is tied in with "Rapture" theology, and God's covenant with the Jews still being valid as a different dispensation. All you need to do is ignore the Scofield quotes. I still don't understand why they are in there, especially considering that some of his teaching is heterodox. It's really odd.
