This highly anticipated commentary on the Greek text of Romans by veteran New Testament scholar Richard Longenecker provides solid scholarship and fresh solutions to long-standing interpretive problems.
Critical, exegetical and constructive, yet pastoral in its application, Longenecker's monumental work on Romans sets a course for the future that will promote a better understanding of this most famous of Paul's letters.
"Paul's letter to the Romans is like Mount Everest in its grandeur and beauty. How fitting it is, then, for one of the deans of New Testament scholarship, Richard Longenecker, to present his interpretation of the letter in this magisterial commentary. All the virtues of Longenecker's work are evident here: in-depth exegesis, careful evaluation of the literary and historical setting of the letter, and consideration of the letter's message for readers today."
