The International Critical Commentary Series is known for its scholarly and critical approach to the scriptures. This work on Romans by Cranfield is a two volume set which has become one of the most important treatments of this Pauline Epistle. The introduction to the work includes textual, structural, and exegetical issues. As well Cranfield covers the history of exegesis regarding Romans and the history of the existence of this text. The commentary itself takes the reader through chapters 1-8 in this first volume, drawing out the historical and theological elements of Paul's letter.
For over one hundred years, the International Critical Commentary series has held a special place among works on the Bible. It has sought to bring together all the relevant aids to exegesis — linguistic and textual no less than archaeological, historical, literary and theological—with a level of comprehension and quality of scholarship unmatched by any other series.
No attempt has been made to secure a uniform theological or critical approach to the biblical text: contributors have been invited for their scholarly distinction, not for their adherence to any one school of thought. The first paperback editions to be published cover the heart of the New Testament, providing a wealth of information and research in accessible and attractive format.
