Excerpt from A Commentary on the New Testament, Vol. 4: Epistle to the Romans
Very possibly some may think it unnecessary to devote a whole volume to this one Epistle; but I felt unable otherwise to do even tolerable justice to the variety and importance of the subjects embraced in it. Long as the Commentary is, some portions of it are less extended than I desired, inasmuch as I was obliged to omit much which I had written, in order to keep the volume within reasonable compass.
In regard to the manner in which I have executed my task, I only remark, that I make no pretension to brilliancy of style; and if I did, I might reasonably doubt whether a commentary were a proper place for its display. As I said in the preface to the first volume, I have attempted to express the truth in a plain and distinct manner, so that it may be apprehended by all classes of readers; and if this has been accomplished, my object thus far is fully attained.
