Top Five Commentaries on Leviticus
Ligonier Ministries has a list and discussion of their top five commentaries on Leviticus. I personally would rank Milgrom higher and prefer his Anchor volumes to the shorter volume in the Continental series. In any case, the top five they have listed are:
1. Gordon J. Wenham -- The Book of Leviticus (The New International Commentary on the Old Testament, 1979).
2. John E. Hartley -- Leviticus (Word Biblical Commentary, 1992).
3. Mark F. Rooker -- Leviticus (New American Commentary, 2000).
4. Jacob Milgrom -- Leviticus (Continental Commentary, 2004).
5. Baruch A. Levine -- Leviticus (JPS Torah Commentary, 1989).
