This substantive evangelical commentary on Romans by a leading biblical scholar is one of the most popular in the award-winning BECNT series and has been praised as a great preaching commentary. This new edition, updated and revised throughout, reflects Thomas Schreiner's mature thinking on various interpretive issues. As with all BECNT volumes, this commentary features the author's detailed interaction with the Greek text, extensive research, thoughtful verse-by-verse exegesis, and a user-friendly design. It admirably achieves the dual aims of the series--academic sophistication with pastoral sensitivity and accessibility--making it a useful tool for pastors, church leaders, students, and teachers.
About the Series
The Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament (BECNT) series provides commentaries that blend scholarly depth with readability, exegetical detail with sensitivity to the whole, and attention to critical problems with theological relevance.
Thomas R. Schreiner (PhD, Fuller Theological Seminary) is James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation and professor of biblical theology at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. He has taught at SBTS for more than twenty years. Schreiner is the author or editor of numerous books, including Romans in the BECNT series, The King in His Beauty, New Testament Theology, Magnifying God in Christ, Interpreting the Pauline Epistles, and Paul, Apostle of God's Glory in Christ.
"Schreiner has skillfully executed a thoroughgoing revision of his significant commentary on Paul's magisterial letter to Roman Christians. Those who own the first edition will want to discover how Schreiner's thinking has developed over time, but all who are interested in the interpretation and proclamation of the apostle's most influential letter will do well to have the second edition of this consequential commentary close at hand. Congratulations on this significant achievement."
-Todd D. Still, Charles J. and Eleanor McLerran DeLancey Dean and William M. Hinson Professor of Christian Scriptures, Baylor University, Truett Seminary
"Schreiner's revised Romans commentary is marked by lucid, evenhanded exegesis; thorough but fleet-footed interaction with the latest scholarship; and a wonderful balance of breadth and depth. One of the best commentaries on Romans just got even better and should be on the shelf of all students, preachers, and teachers of this great letter."
-Will N. Timmins, lecturer in New Testament, Moore Theological College, Sydney
"Well known for his accessible and theologically sensitive writings, Schreiner has produced a wonderful update to his highly regarded commentary on Romans. More than a few tweaks, this project is a full-blown update: the bibliography is current, the discussions are more refined, and the material is better organized. Schreiner rightly argues that Paul's letter was written to put God's glory on display. I expect this volume to be a source of wisdom for decades to come for scholars, students, pastors, and laypeople. Highly recommended!"
-Benjamin L. Gladd, Reformed Theological Seminary
