William M. Greathouse offers this fresh commentary on Romans, as he reflects upon new scholarship such as the "new perspective" on Romans in recent decades. Greathouse explains God's righteousness as both gift and his demand, and shows the doctrine of Christian ethical righteousness and sanctification, what he says is precisely Paul's doctrine in Romans 6-8 and 12-15.
