Book Description

11 Dec 1996 New International Commentary on the New Testament
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. - AWARDS and RECOGNITIONS - Christianity Today, Number 9 on the Top 25 Books of the Year list (1997)

Product Description


''This commentary displays marks of fine scholarship and practical interest. Douglas Moo shows himself to be keenly aware of theological subtleties and issues, and his work is informed by a strong sense of the history of interpretation of Romans.'' --Journal of Theological Studies

''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.'' --Bibliotheca Sacra

''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.'' --The Christian Librarian

5.0 out of 5 stars A student's help and a Pastor's guide 9 Feb 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
D.Moo has an excellent way of examing the text and interacting with the theological world. Whilst you may not always agree with the conclusions he reaches his arguements are thoughtful and faithful to the Biblical text. An excellent guide for Pastor's in sermon material gathering, and for students a great indepth guide to Romans.

5.0 out of 5 stars A THOROUGH AND MAGNIFICENT WORK ON ROMANS 24 Mar 1999
By A Customer
Many scholars of the New Testament at some point in their scholarship write a commentary on the book of Romans. Romans is one of those very coherent books to read in the New Testament.
However, this commentary by Douglas Moo, professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, appears to be a thorough and magnificent work on the book of Romans. Moo makes comments on both the English and Greek text of Romans. Moo's commentary on Romans seems to excel other commentaries on Romans in these three categories:
1. It has the deepest exegetical notes on the Greek text of Romans by using thousands of footnotes dealing with the Greek text.
2. It has the deepest theological explanation on Romans including many additional excurses on serious points of theology.
3. It give the most complete consideration of alternative interpretations of the text.
I have read many other commentaries on both the Greek and English text of Romans and I can tell you that this commentary on Romans by Dr. Moo will probably not be superceded by any for decades to come. It well worth the price since this commentary will provide material which the reader can chew on for a long, long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 'half-way' commentary 27 Nov 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Packaging and delivery satisfactory. This is an excellent commentary that goes through the various opinions about the text but also states why one view is favoured. It is half way between a popular commentary and a fully academic one. It will be for the more serious bible student

5.0 out of 5 stars Moo on Romans 8 April 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A scholarly book for anyone who wants some serious reference material on Romans. This is not a devotional work but one intended fort use by serious students of God's Word. would be useful for anyone studying at a theological college, for ministers or just those who like to study God's Word at a deeper level.
