Product Description

Requiring more than 12 years Douglas Moo's The Epistle to the Romans [NICNT] is considered a masterpiece of theological literature and is a flagship volume in NICNT series. Originally started under F.F. Bruce, Moo's project transitioned in 1990 to the editorial leadership of Gordon Fee and their combined effort produced a remarkable commentary.

Based on English text and yet integrating the underlying Greek at every point, this commentary focuses both on historical-grammatical concerns as well as on theological implications. Moo contributes to the ongoing debate on Paul's understanding of issues as Jewish law, the relationship between Jews and Gentiles in the people of God, the Christian life, sin, and justification critically interacts with the so-called "the new perspective on Paul".

Critical Perspectives
  • Traditional Interpretation of Paul (i.e. "old perspective")

About the NICNT

Purpose

The most highly technical elements are generally dealt with in footnotes, excurses, or appendices maximizing scholarly interaction without exhausting non-academic readers.

Fee (1990-Present), the NICNT series has become the most recognized series in the world. Its prestige is such that contribution to it bequeaths upon authors an elite scholarly status.

Fee's leadership has led to several new volumes in the series, including several of his own. As such, Fee has kept the NICNT conversant with contemporary scholarship. All volumes remain in an ongoing process of evaluation to determine the need revision or replacement, and recent years have reaffirmed this commitment.

Endorsements

-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.

Internationale Zeitschriftenschau fur Bibelwissenschaft und Grenzgebiete (IZBG)
Moo has created a standard resource of exegetical reference.

-Reviews in Religion and 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.

-The 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.

-The 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.

-Theological 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.

Craig L. Blomberg
If a student could own but one commentary on Romans, this should be it--now and for a long time to come.

-Catholic Biblical Quarterly
In The Epistle to the Romans Douglas Moo provides a very good, detailed analysis of Paul's most important letter.

    Moo is probably a good scholar, but he let's his theology think for him. If he could be a little more neutral and set out opposing positions as well without being so biased it would be helpful.

    This is a good commentary if you are a very serious student.

    Probably best for teachers and pastors.

    It is not too hard to read and will really help to understand the great volume of information bestowed upon Paul by the Lord.

    Of the several commentaries I own on Romans, this one is by far the best. One should not be afraid of this book because of its length. Much of it is becasue of the many long footnotes, which themselves are helpful. Mr. Moo gives several suggested interpretations and then supplies us with his thoughtful and well reasoned conclusions as to the meaning of the passage under consideration. An excellent addition to anyone's library.D. Cooper
