From the Author

Commentary
The sustained argument of this letter makes it impossible to bring out its meaning adequately on a verse-by-verse basis. The procedure adopted, accordingly, is to present an exposition of the successive divisions of the argument, each section of the exposition being followed by more detailed verse-by-verse comments on the division just expounded. The student who wishes to consult this work for help on a particular verse should therefore read the exposition of the passage within which that verse falls as well as any comment that may be provided expressly on the verse itself. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover
This is a handy small commentary on this large book! I appreciate the style, with a summary of the argument, every paragraph or so, as well as comments on points of detail, verse by verse. Bruce is faithful to a conservative viewpoint but even-handed in his treatment of the opinions of others.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Samuel Barber on 17 July 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The letter to the Romans is one of my least favourite of Paul's writings, and this commentary doesn't do anything to bridge that gap. There is some expansion on Romans 6 where Paul writes that Christians are buried with Christ in the waters of baptism and resurrected to a new life in Christ when they emerge from the waters of baptism. The commentary is then impenetrable until it begins to comment on the Christian way of life from Romans 12 onwards. Here he expands on how Christians have a duty to present their bodies in church each week as a living sacrifice. But what happens if there is no love in your church? What happens if you have no friends or fellowship in your church? What happens if you are not growing spiritually even though you are attending church each Sunday? It states that those who are strong should bear with the failings of the weak. Those who are in high profile jobs should associate with those who are on minimum wage or unemployed. If your enemy is hungry then feed him. The fact is, quite a lot of Christians are unfed spiritually, emotionally and socially in church which is why they find it a joyless duty to attend church each Sunday.

An academic commentary that doesn't seem to penetrate an impenetrable letter.

This is a great introduction and commentary on Romans by "Fredy Fingers". For any undergraduate or college student.

A Moderate and Insightful Commentary 5 April 2012
By Philip du Toit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a short but handy commentary that states Bruce's viewpoint without engaging too deep into parallel debate. His approach is Evangelical, yet cautious with good insight in the text on a fairly advanced level. I find Bruce's introduction very handy, where he explains the concepts of "flesh" and "spirit/Spirit" in Paul, and the different ways in which these concepts in the letter to the Romans are employed. This helps the reader to have a better grasp of Paul's use of these concepts, and it largely contributes to a better understanding of the unregenerate and regenerate person. I would say this is one of the strengths of Bruce's approach.

Even though this commentary is a bit dated and thus does not engage into the New Perspective (NPP), and can be considered as representing the Lutheran Perspective (LP), it would be unwize to disregard Bruce's insight into matters of identity in terms of a position in flesh vs. spirit, a needed perspective even in the NPP vs. LP debate. I consider it as a useful supplementary commentary, probably one of the better ones in this series.

A compact commentary on Romans 28 Oct. 2013
By EEG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bruce provides an authoritative commentary on Romans that offers interpretive focus at the paragraph level more than at the level of individual verses. This results in a relatively compact treatment that quite satisfactorily illuminates the meaning. It is up to date and confronts textual and contested issues head-on with balance.

Roman's commentary 16 May 2007
By Robert O. Sokolowski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
You can't go wrong with an F.F. Bruce commentary. This is a commentary for beginners. You will need a text of Romans to read along side this commentary. Short but insightful!

It accomplishes its purpose 6 July 2013
By spidersam13 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read this commentary in connection with a class on the book of Romans I took at school. This book is exactly what it is supposed to be. It provides more information on the Book of Romans, both in regard to the meaning of words in the original language and what things would have meant to the original audience. It is certainly helpful for those studying Scripture, preparing messages, or perhaps just doing personal devotions. The first section of the book is all about the context into which the letter to the Romans fit at the time of writing. Then, Bruce begins going through the letter. As he progresses through each section of the letter, he gives an overview, then goes through each verse, pointing out things worth noting. Unfortunately, I cannot compare it to any other commentaries on Romans at this time as I have not read another one in-depth yet. There was nothing that really stood out about this book which is why I simply give it three stars. It accomplished its purpose and gave me a greater understanding of the book of Romans than I had before.

Good book!! 12 Nov. 2012
By J. Olivella - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had to buy this book for my bible class and it's a pretty good book. Just a little hard to understand at first but with a great teacher, it goes a long way. Lots of historical facts and I do recommend this book to everyone.
