Romans (Everyman's Bible Commentary Series)
Designed for laypeople, these commentaries deal seriously with the biblical text without being overly technical. Introductory information, doctrinal themes, problem passages, and practical applications are examined.
The book of Romans is one of the best-loved books in the entire Bible. Paul's explanation of the doctrine of justification by faith is rooted deep within the hearts of most Christians. Further, the acknowledgment that we are not under law, but under grace has given Christians freedom from the bondage of legalism for centuries.However, Romans is a complex book filled with difficult theology. To make this revolutionary book more accessible to the common man, Alan Johnson has written Everyman's Bible Commentary on Romans. The original two volumes are now combined into one complete volume. The commentary is also updated, expanded, and revised. The easy style and careful presentation make this an excellent commentary for laymen and pastors alike.Study Paul's discussion of the believer's new life in Christ, with their release from sin and death, and the faithfulness of God. Be encouraged and strengthened with a more in-depth understanding of your position before Christ with this commentary on Romans.
