David G. Peterson in his commentary on Romans provides a detailed analysis of the text while drawing theological reflections from the context of the Bible’s whole story line. He also frequently makes connections between the text and the contemporary application of Paul’s writing. Peterson’s insightful exegesis and practical connections make this work a wonderful resource for anyone involved in preaching and teaching the Word of God.

Series: Biblical Theology for Christian Proclamation
The major contribution of each volume, however, is a thorough discussion of the most important themes of the biblical book in relation to the canon as a whole. This format, in itself, would already be a valuable contribution to biblical theology. But there are other series that try to accomplish a survey of the Bibles theology as well. What distinguishes the present series is its orientation toward Christian proclamation. As a result, the ultimate purpose of this set of volumes is not exclusively, or even primarily, academic. Rather, we seek to relate biblical theology to our own lives and to the life of the church. Our desire is to equip those in Christian ministry who are called by God to preach and teach the precious truths of Scripture to their congregations.
The Geeky Calvinist4 Stars Out Of 5An Interesting WorkFebruary 15, 2018The Geeky CalvinistQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4There are many phenomenal commentaries, yet they usually fall into a segmented categories, yet the new series Biblical Theology for Christian Proclamation, breaks the mold. For it is not only scholarly, pastoral, and insightful, but also extremely practical. This series is a planned 40 volume series, produced by B&H Academic and is edited by T. Desmond Alexander, Andreas J. Kstenberger, and Thomas R. Schreiner, and has just added its third entry.
This third entry is titled, Romans, and is written by David G. Peterson. Divided into five main sections this commentary becomes a must have for every Pastor who plants and teaching through the anonymous letter to the Romans. The first of these five sections is that of the introduction. The introduction of this work deals with the traditional introductory matters of a commentary. While being a relatively small commentary Peterson dedicates nearly 60 pages to these introductory matters. While I do not agree with his arrangements for authorship of this epistle the rest of the introduction section I do wholeheartedly agree with. Furthermore Peterson make sure to place this epistle in its proper context. This is not only helpful but necessary to understand the authors original intent, the original understanding, and original meaning. Each of these parts shape the context to which a person can expositors from.
Lastly, the greatest part of this commentary is not in the standard commentary section but rather in the last section of the book which deals with Biblical and Theological themes. This section of the book which takes up a third of the book is worth the price of the book itself. Peterson explains the themes of this epistle in great detail giving practical comment on each as well as theological death so that no stone is left upturned. When I next preach on the epistle to the Romans this commentary will be at the top of my list. I do not know how I have taught through these books of the Bibles without utilizing this super commentary supplicate bye personal exegesis of the text so that Im owed proclaim the gospel in the correct Orthodox light while being able to reach the most people for Christ. I therefore highly recommend this commentary to all pastors who devote themselves to exegetical preaching while seeking to further their understanding through commentaries.
This book was provided to me free of charge from B&H Academic in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.
Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Great New Commentary!September 16, 2017Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The young Biblical Theology for Christian Proclamation (BTCP) series continues its impressive start with this fine volume on Romans by scholar David Peterson. When I saw that Mr. Peterson was scheduled to produce this commentary on Romans, I fully anticipated an excellent volume because of his track record in producing a top-flight commentary on the Book of Acts in the Pillar New Testament Commentary series. Though this series may not go as deep on the exegetical level, it creates its own niche by carefully probing biblical theology with competent exegetical work behind it. Mr. Peterson has proven himself adept at both types of commentary. In other words, he has succeeded with this BTCP volume on the Book of Romans.
The learning that Mr. Peterson brings to the table is clear in the Introduction he writes on the Book of Romans for this volume. Although this series required that he summarize more on introductory matters, the research behind what he says is obvious. He begins by discussing the character of Romans and dives immediately into the epistolary framework of the book. This approach requires deeply probing what Paul was doing at this point of his ministry. The next section is on structure and argument. He agrees with those who see four main divisions in the argument Paul presents. He finally arrives at a new approach that he presents in four literary factors: alternation, refrain, progression/digression, and recursion. Next, he tackles purpose and puts Jews and Roman Christianity in its proper context along with Pauls mission. He ends with a discussion of continuing relevance for the Book of Romans and an outline of the book.
Theres another introductory chapter that discusses biblical and theological themes found in the Book of Romans. This chapter effectively draws out in accordance with the aims of this series what will be developed throughout the commentary itself. In my view, theres much to glean in this section to greatly enrich ones understanding of Romans.
The commentary itself begins with the text, a discussion of context, another of structure, followed by verse by verse commentary. That is followed by a section entitled bridge that ties the discussion together and makes some helpful conclusions.
All the volumes in this series so far have been of high quality, and snagging Mr. Peterson for the Romans volume is something of a coup for the editors. It raises the stature of this series. This volume will be appreciated by pastors and I recommend it.
