Product Description

A helpfully concise commentary on Paul's letter to the Romans, which the Apostle wrote just a few years before the outbreak of Nero's persecution. Keener examines each paragraph for its function in the letter as a whole, helping the reader follow Paul's argument. Where relevant, he draws on his vast work in ancient Jewish and Greco-Roman sources in order to help modern readers understand the message of Romans according to the way the first audience would have heard it.

Throughout, Keener focuses on major historical, social, and grammatical issues that are especially critical for the contemporary study of Paul's most influential and complex New Testament letter.

    At 193 pages, excluding the bibliography and appendices, Romans in the New Covenant Commentary series is indeed concise. Do not let its brevity deceive you, dear reader. This book is excellent.

    Craig Keener has done an amazing job of bringing out the main point of each pericope in the book of Romans. That was the purpose of the commentary, to give the big picture. Amazingly enough, while showing the big picture, Keener still brings out many details.

    Should the apparent (though not real) paucity of material disturb the reader, Keener extensively annotates and references other scholarly works. He also gives an extensive bibliography. In fact, the book is worth its cost just for the notes and bibliography.

    The strong point of this commentary is that it addresses the big picture of Romans while doing so, not in a simplistic way; but in a simple way. There is depth to this book, yet it is a profound simplicity. That is a good thing, because the book is good for scholars, academics, pastors, and the so-called average reader. It is accessible to all.

    The one negative that I must mention is the binding. For a book that will be used as a reference and will be on someone's desk, the binding is very poor. The printer seemed to have tried to economize on the glue that is used at the spine. Because of this the pages easily pull loose and come out. I hope that this was an anomaly that is unique to my copy.

    Other than the issue with the binding, I highly recommend this commentary.
