Paul's epistle to the Romans is at the very heart of Christian doctrine. It is also very difficult to interpret. In this commentary on the Greek text, Richard Longenecker offers a critical, exegetical, and constructive interpretation that balances traditional with current scholarship, and maintains a pastoral focus.
:Paul's letter to believers in Jesus at Rome has always been very highly regarded within the Christian church, playing a central role in the formulation and proclamation of Christian doctrine. Yet despite its status in the church and its importance for Christian thought, life, and proclamation, Romans is not a simple writing -- it is one of the most difficult New Testament letters to analyze and interpret.
In this commentary prominent New Testament scholar Richard Longenecker offers a clear analysis of Romans that builds on the work of past commentators while still being informed by significant studies and insights of interpreters today. His analysis is critical, exegetical, and constructive, but pastoral in its application. Longenecker also sets a course for the future that will promote a better understanding of this most famous of Paul's letters and a more relevant contextualization of its message.
