This is John Murray's commentary that was originally written as a two-volume work for the NICOT, which has been replaced by Douglas Moo's commentary.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.
