Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Bibliotheca Sacra
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.
Christian Librarian
"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."
Expository Times
His coverage is comprehensive, his dealing with sparring partners fair-minded, his verdicts level-headed.... The whole is a model of clarity and a compendium of expository treasure.
IZBG: Issues in Law & Medicine
Moo has created a standard resource of exegetical reference.
Reviews in Religion (U.K.) & Theology (U.K.)
A substantial piece of work.... It deserves significant attention regardless of the competition of many other important commentaries on the same letter.
The Bible Today
This massive new commentary on Romans is the contribution of a respected Evangelical scholar. His remarkable erudition and sound, clearly argued analysis of the text represent the best of that perspective.
Theological (U.K.) Book Review (U.K.)
"This is the most attractive and readable of all the many weighty commentaries on Romans published in recent years, and every library will need it.... Its lucidity is remarkable and admirable."

    The New Standard on Romans

    There are a lot of commentaries available on Romans, but Moo's contribution to the NICNT series is the most detailed and comprehensive work on Romans that I have found. The exegesis is thorough and careful. Moo presents all of the most plausible interpretations of a text and then gives his own view along with a thorough explanation. The most satisfying attribute of the commentary is its readability. The main body of the text is so clear and flows so well that even one who is less familiar with Greek and/or modern critical discussions can enjoy smooth and coherent commentary with a pastoral warmth by simply avoiding a large portion of the footnotes. Those in need of scholarly discussion and Greek helps will not be disappointed! Moo's commentary will clearly be the standard for years to come!
