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.

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.

Once past the Royal delivery assessments, this book arrived and is exactly as expected. Great job! Would do business with you again :)

It's really good, though recommended by a professor, it goes a long way to help my understanding

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