Designed for the serious student as well as the lay reader seeking to grow in understanding of Scripture, Dr. Jack Cottrell's Romans: The College Press NIV Commentary offers a unique perspective on Paul's letter to the church in Rome from one who has long been a part of the Restoration Movement.
With unusual clarity and simplicity, Dr. Cottrell deals with the complex issues that arise within Romans, cutting to the very marrow of the matter and taking great care to wrestle with text until the meaning of Paul's words—God's words—is accurately exposed. In the process of explaining the text, Cottrell also interacts with other writers assessing their positions, attacking their weaknesses, and confirming their contributions to the understanding of the text.
All the while he is concerned about theology: theology that comes directly from Romans to be sure; however, he is also concerned about the theology that comes to Romans from the rest of Scripture.
This commentary will be of great benefit to laity and students. It is in-depth and detailed without being technical.

The Seeking DiscipleLexington, SCAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A Solid Arminian Commentary on RomansNovember 5, 2013The Seeking DiscipleLexington, SCAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Most biblical commentaries on the book of Romans from a conservative perspective approach the book from a Calvinistic viewpoint. Few realize that there are solid commentaries on Romans from an Arminian perspective it seems but this is one of them (along with Vic Reasoner's, these two are the best Arminian commentaries on Romans).
Dr. Cottrell is a highly regarded scholar and theologian. He is from the Restoration Movement but he does label himself an Arminian and his approach to Romans 9-11 is very much an Arminian approach.
One aspect of Dr. Cottrell's writings is that he does not shy away from tackling difficult passages. His commentary on Romans 5:12-21 is worth the price of this book.
Overall, this is one of the best Arminian commentaries you can buy along with Dr. Vic Reasoner's commentary (his from a Fundamental Wesleyan perspective). You will be blessed by reading this commentary.
