In the series preface, editors Robert W. Yarbrough and Robert H. Stein help answer that question: 

The chief concern of the Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament (BECNT) is to provide, within the framework of informed evangelical thought, commentaries that blend scholarly depth with readability, exegetical detail with sensitivity to the whole, and attention to critical problems with theological awareness. 

We hope thereby to attract the interest of a fairly wide audience, from the scholar who is looking for a thoughtful and independent examination of the text to the motivated lay Christian who craves a solid but accessible exposition. Nevertheless, a major purpose is to address the needs of pastors and others involved in the preaching and exposition of the Scriptures as the uniquely inspired Word of God.

When you look at what scholars are saying about BECNT, it appears the editors fulfilled that purpose: 

This series has set a new standard in reader-friendliness with its attractive presentation that combines detailed exegetical comment on the Greek text with accessibility for those who have little or no knowledge of the original language of the New Testament.

— I. Howard Marshall, emeritus professor of New Testament exegesis at University of Aberdeen

Rigorous exegesis by seasoned scholars with explicit evangelical commitments. This is also one of the best-designed, easy-to-read series as it includes intro matters, then each commentator’s translation, commentary, and textual notes for every passage. Very reliable.

— Bruce Riley Ashford, provost and dean of faculty at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

Readers agree: 8 of the 18 volumes are ranked 3 or above on bestcommentaries.com.
