Product Description

This is John Murray's commentary that was originally written as a two-volume work for the NICOT, which has been replaced by Douglas Moo's commentary. Due to Murray's lasting value, however, the publisher has kept this commentary in print as an independent volume. This commentary is characterized by careful, in-depth scholarship and spiritual insight. After discussing the authorship, occasion, purpose, and contents of Romans, Murray proceeds with a verse-by-verse exegesis of the text. Also included are 10 appendices in which issues such as the meaning of justification, the relation of Isaiah 53:11 to the message of Romans, Karl Barth on Romans 5, and other subjects in Romans are discussed. This work will benefit scholars, pastors, and students in their efforts to understand what is perhaps Paul's most profound writing. John Murray was born in Scotland, was educated in Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Princeton, and spent most of his career teaching systematic theology at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Publisher's Description

Careful scholarship and spiritual insight characterize this enduring commentary on Romans, generally considered to be Paul's most profound letter. In The Epistle to the Romans John Murray offers an exposition of Romans deeply penetrating in its elucidation of the text yet accessible to scholars, pastors, and students alike.

In his introduction to the commentary proper, Murray discusses the authorship, occasion, purpose, and contents of Romans and provides important background information on the church at Rome. Murray then provides a verse-by-verse exposition of the text that takes into account key problems that have emerged in the older and newer literature. In ten appendices that close the volume Murray gives special attention to themes and scholarly debates that are essential for a full-orbed understanding of Romans -- the meaning of justification, the relation of Isaiah 53:11 to the message of Romans, Karl Barth on Romans 5, the interpretation of the "weak brother" in Romans 14, and more.

This combined edition of Murray's original two-volume work, formerly published as part of the New International Commentary on the New Testament series, will hold continued value as a scholarly resource in the study of Romans for years to come.
