Back cover copy

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.

Review quote

"This commentary displays marks of fine scholarship and practical interest. Douglas Moo shows himself to be keenly aware of theological subtleties and issues, and his work is informed by a strong sense of the history of interpretation of Romans." --Journal of Theological Studies; "This is a monumental work that can be placed among the best commentaries on Romans. If one wants to know the content of Romans, this commentary needs to be consulted... Helpful to teachers, pastors, and students." --Bibliotheca Sacra; "A commentary that will become the new standard for conservative New Testament scholars... This commentary can be used by the informed layman or the busy minister. There are few points in the Epistle that Moo does not cover. This commentary is a 'must-have' for any library or minister who wishes to study the Apostle Paul's magnum opus. This volume deserves much praise in achieving its goals as a comprehensive commentary on the Book of Romans." --The Christian Librarian
