The Epistle to the Romans (New International Commentary On The New Testament Series)

$89.99

Hardback
Discover a new perspective on Pauline theology with this significant revision of Moo's work for the Wycliffe series. Moo comments on the entire Epistle, interacting with the very latest scholarly discussions and repeatedly demonstrating the importance of historical context for exegesis. 967 pages, from Eerdmans

- Publisher Paul's letter to the Romans has been called "the quintessence and perfection of saving doctrine". Perhaps the most challenging and thoroughly doctrinal book of the entire New Testament, Romans deals with many issues that are basic to Christian theology and practice. In The Epistle to the Romans respected New Testament scholar Douglas Moo provides a superb study of Paul's letter to the Roman Christians and restates the enduring message of Romans for Christians today. Originally written for the Wycliffe Exegetical Commentary series, this work has been substantially expanded and adapted for the NICNT series; it now treats the entire book of Romans rather than the first half. Based on the English text but bringing into the discussion the underlying Greek at every point, this commentary focuses both on theological meaning and on contemporary significance. Moo makes a contribution to the continuing debate regarding Paul's teaching on such issues as Jewish law and the relationship between the Jews and Gentiles in the people of God. He also critically interacts with "the new perspective on Paul", highlights Romans's emphasis on "practical divinity", and traces the theme of gospel throughout the epistle.

Never go wrong on Moo!
5 stars By Gary, Nov 22 2017
Dr Moo is one of the leading scholar in the current evangelical circle.  His exegesis is a gem to all student.  If you have only one book on the shelf, I would not hesitate to buy this book.  Is technical but accessible, which unlike his latest Galatians which is highly technical and not for average reader.

Must-have commentary on Romans
5 stars By Hoa, Jun 04 2016
Moo's commentary on the Letter to the Romans is often considered the single most useful contemporary commentary. The format is traditional, beginning with a discussion of introductory matters such as authorship, date, text, structure, etc. His insights into the overall theme of the letter as 'the gospel' shed light on the significance of the sections of the letter. The main bulk of the rest of the book follow a traditional section-by-section, verse-by-verse explanation of the text. Moo helpfully introduces each new section, and especially with verses with multiple interpretations, lays out the different options before arguing his point of view. Good use of footnotes keeps the main text uncluttered, while further reading is readily available in the footnotes. This is a must-have for anyone wanting to understand Romans better.

Very valuable
5 stars By Benjamin, Jul 26 2013
Douglas Moo's commentary on the epistle of Paul to the Romans is a lengthy and very valuable resource of biblical scholarship. This text was the set text for a course I have just completed on the epistle. At first I was put off by the length of it thinking it will be too gritty for me and that I'll finish reading it confused. However I soon noticed that the sheer length of it is mainly due to the extensive and very helpful footnotes. I found the text easy to understand and found the views presented by Moo very helpful. This is probably the best commentary on Romans currently available and recommend it for those intending to do some deep study on the epistle.
