When Paul first penned his letter to the house churches of Rome, his purpose was to gain the prayerful support of his coming mission to the western reaches of the Mediterranean world. Little did he know that for two millennia this exposition of the gospel would echo through church and academy, market and home. It would leap great oceans to reverberate through lands and hearts beyond the farthest edges of his world.The author joins a chorus of distinguished voices of the church who have pondered and lived the great themes of Romans, and who have tuned our ears to hear its rich harmonies and meditate on its broad vision. In the classic tradition of great Christian leaders who have commented on Romans, Stott expounds Paul's words, themes and arguments. The power of the gospel, the righteousness of God revealed from heaven, is clearly addressed to today's men and women who have answered its summons.Not only is Stott deeply acquainted with the text and context of Romans, he is also conversant with the most recent Pauline scholarship. But more important, he views Romans from his own pastoral and missionary perspective, an outlook shaped in turn by the great vision of the apostle. Here is a commentary for those who live on the edge of the third millennium, a commentary spanning the two worlds of Romans-Paul's and ours.
