The Expositor's Bible Commentary is meant to be an Evangelical scholarly treatment of the scriptures. This volume, number 10 of the series, covers Romans, 1 Corinthians 2 Corinthians and Galatians. Each commentator begins with introductory notes and then analyzes the text of each book on historical, linguistic and theological levels.
The Gold Medallion Award-winning Expositors Bible Commentary is a major contribution to the study and understanding of the Scriptures. Providing pastors and Bible students with a comprehensive and scholarly tool for the exposition of the Scriptures and the teaching and proclamation of their message, this twelve-volume reference work has become a staple of seminary and college libraries and pastors studies worldwide. The seventy-eight contributors come from the United States, Canada, England, Scotland, Australia, and New Zealand, and from many denominations, including Anglican, Baptist, Brethren, Methodist, Nazarene, Presbyterian, and Reformed. They represent the best in evangelical scholarship committed to the divine inspiration, complete trustworthiness, and full authority of the Bible. The Expositors Bible Commentary uses the New International Version for its English text, but also refers freely to other translations and to the original languages. Each book of the Bible has, in addition to its exposition, an introduction, outline, and bibliography. Notes on textual questions and special problems are correlated with the expository units; transliteration and translation of Semitic and Greek words make the more technical notes accessible to readers unacquainted with the biblical languages. In matters where marked differences of opinion exist, commentators, while stating their own convictions, deal fairly and irenically with opposing views.

[Volumes 10 and 11] introduce a new, comprehensive commentary on the books of the Old and New Testament, a joint enterprise of some 78 contributors projected for 12 volumes. The format is attractive and lends itself to expository style... [Murry] Harris on 2 Corinthians rates excellent [in interpretation]. His more technical style shows careful study and provides rewarding insights. The series has the makings of a standard resource for preaching and teaching...'
'...a roaring success. Both form and style contribute to readability, and the scholarship is sound without being pedantic or tedious.'
Volume 10 '[Everett F.] Harrison\rquote s commentary [on Romans] is a model of clarity.'
'...a refreshing change from some of the major commentaries of the past...quite readable. In general the writers are concerned to help the reader understand the flow of the Bible book, rather than digressing into speculative questions with little spiritual value.'
'The four writers in this volume provide a sound guide to the meaning of the works with which they deal. This will be a useful volume for a minister to have on his shelves.'
'...a very helpful addition to the library of anyone interested in studying and teaching the Scriptures more effectively.'
'...excellent series...a valuable reference source in any evangelical pastor' s library.'
'...one of the greatest pieces of religious literature published in this generation. We cannot recommend it too highly.'
'For those needing a good commentary, you will find in this set one of the best.'
'The serious Bible student, whether seminarian, pastor, or layman, will be delighted with this concise but thorough treatment of the biblical text.'
'It is the kind of commentary that should be in all church libraries as well as in homes of persons who care to understand the Bible beyond Americanized ideologies of self-oriented experience.'
'The 78 authors represent the best evangelical scholarship in the English-speaking world...a rich feast.'
'The author list [of the Expositor's Bible Commentary] reads like a page from a who's who of evangelical Bible scholars. A quality product. Unquestionably wise for the serious student to plan to secure each volume.'
