The Epistle to the Romans

Front Cover
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, Sep 30, 1996 - Religion - 1012 pages
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.
