Martin Luther called Romans the clearest gospel of all. But centuries of interpretive tradition and dogma have muddied the waters. Edwards's careful exposition pays attention to literary detail and historical context to clarify the Epistle's significance for its original readers and for the church today. The NIBC format (section-by-section exposition of the NIV, all Greek transliterated, and separate textual and technical notes) make this commentary ideal for laypeople and pastors.
James R. Edwards is professor of religion at Jamestown College. Besides being a frequent contributor to scholarly journals, he is also coauthor of The Layman's Overview of the Bible.
