DESCRIPTION

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 this volume respected New Testament scholar Douglas J. Moo provides a superb study of Paul’s letter to the Roman Christians and restates the enduring message of Romans for Christians today.

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 contributes to the continuing debate regarding Paul’s teaching on such issues as Jewish law and the relationship between 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.

Twelve years in the making and a steady seller during its first decade in print, Moo’s Epistle to the Romans will continue to serve as a standard exposition of Romans.

    “All the virtues of Doug Moo’s work in the first edition of his Romans commentary are retained in the updated second edition. The commentary displays careful and rigorous exegesis, reflecting the mature judgment of a seasoned scholar who has considered the meaning of Romans for many years. At the same time, the theology of Paul’s greatest letter is explained clearly and brilliantly. . . . Moo’s first edition of Romans is the best commentary on Romans available, and the only volume that surpasses it is his second.”

    “The passing of two decades has by no means rendered the careful exegesis of Moo’s 1996 commentary out of date. Still, this second edition allows him to interact with the most recent Pauline scholarship. To this scholarship it serves as a reliable guide—at the same time as it remains, and will continue to remain, a fine guide to the argument of Paul’s most weighty epistle.”
