Product Description

About the Series: The IVP New Testament Commentary Series
Pastors with a passion for sound exposition and scholars with a heart for pastoral leadership have joined forces to produce this exciting, accessible, and informative commentary series.

Each volume, informed by the best of up-to-date evangelical scholarship, presents passage-by-passage commentary based on the NIV along with background information on authorship, setting, theme and various interpretive issues. A unique format allows the main commentary to focus on the vital message of the New Testament book being studied for today's church, while bottom-of-the-page notes include valuable scholarly information to support those who use the volumes as a resource for preaching or teaching preparation.

Who Should Use it?The series is accessible to all people who wish to use it for biblical study whether they are pastors, students, or laity. Christians new to Bible study may find it challenging as a starting point for biblical study, but should be able to adapt to it with the help of a Bible study teacher. Those who have used Bible study guides in the past will find this series particularly helpful in taking the next step into deeper biblical study.

About: Romans

Few individual books of the Bible have changed the course of church history the way Paul's letter to the Romans has.

Whether one thinks of Augustine's conversion in the fourth century, Luther's recovery of justification by faith in the sixteenth or Barth's challenge to recover theological exegesis of the Bible in the twentieth, Romans has been the catalyst to personal spiritual renewal and the recapturing of gospel basics.

Paul, in seeking to bring unity and understanding between Jews and Gentiles in Rome, sets forth in Romans his most profound explication of the gospel and its meaning for the church. The letter's relevance is as great today as it was in the first century.

Throughout this commentary, Grant R. Osborne explains what the letter meant to its original hearers and its application for us today.

    Commentary is generally from an Arminian perspective; yet Osborne sometimes parts with generally accepted positions if his own research shows that the going wisdom is not supportable from the Scriptures. Osborne's scholarship is uncomfortably honest. While he is not Calvinist, he is not shy about frequently and favorably quoting Calvin and Augustine. The writer comes uncomfortably close to supporting the doctrine of "Total Depravity." If Osborne "cut to the chase" more, the commentary would be shorter; but he presents opposing views quite a bit before presenting his conclusions. Interacting with writers of opposing views is a strength of this commentary. It's not a quick read; but there is a reward for reading through it.
