  1. 4 Stars Out Of 5
    A thoughtful secondary commentary to Romans

    As a pastor, I own about 10 commentaries on the book of Romans and I look for a wide range of perspectives (mostly conservative and reformed) as well as balanced (some technical, others applicational). I found Barth's take on Romans to read much like a sermon. Being relatively unfamiliar with Barth's theology, I found his writing to be strong, not boring or neutral and deeper intellectually than most. Himself a scholar, I could see why Barth was viewed as more of a theologian than a pastor. He sometimes goes off on tangents I don't quite understand, but overall his exhortative style is refreshing when so many commentators tend to sound restrained and held back. I wouldn't recommend this version as your primary resource on Romans, but instead as a secondary voice to bring added perspective to your own reflections of Paul's intense letter.
