Product Description

In this commentary, Tom Wright helps us see the great sweep of this letter.

The For Everyone Series was created to provide guides to all the books of the New Testament. Each short passage is followed by a highly readable discussion, with background information, useful explanations and suggestions, and thoughts as to how the text can be relevant to our lives today.

Publisher's Description

Writing in an approachable and anecdotal style, Tom Wright helps us see the great sweep of this letter. Romans has long been viewed as the book above all in which Paul puts forth the basic doctrines of the faith, and the picture of God's life for us. It is the classic setting-out of the Gospel.

In this series, Tom Wright has undertaken a tremendous task: to provide guides to all the books of the New Testament and to include in them his own translation of the entire text. Each short passage is followed by a highly readable discussion, with background information, useful explanations and suggestions, and thoughts as to how the text can be relevant to our lives today. A glossary is included at the back of each book. The series is suitable for group study, personal use, or daily devotions.

    Not your typical commentary! Wright uses his own bible translation which seems to dumb down the text for the modern reader to the point that much of the depth and richness of Romans is sacrificed for perspicuity's sake. It might be best to use ESV, NASB, etc., and then read Wright's comments. The real life stories at the beginning of each section are often helpful in illustrating the major point(s) covered in the verses being addressed. Some of his perspectives are slightly outside the pale of orthodoxy, which may provoke the more advanced students (and scholars) to think more deeply about some of the concepts Paul addresses in this epistle. Overall, this is a good basic guide for someone studying Romans for the first time. However, be aware that there are many more treasures buried just under the surface of Romans that this particular commentary does not uncover. Read it, for sure. But keep in mind that there are other more in-depth, more technical, and more comprehensive commentaries available.

    Excellent passage by passage expansion of densely packed Romans. Very easily understood by this layperson. It helped describe the overall sweep of the letter as well as individual sections.
