Careful exegetical attention, a robust knowledge of Reformed systematic theology, and an acute awareness of our spiritual needs all mark this staggering work of profound scholarship. In stunning detail, Murray leads us through the traditional landscape of a Roman’s commentary (authorship, purpose, structure, verse-by-verse exposition), engaging with leading scholars and theologians of his time. But he adds to this discussion his own depth of understanding based on years of teaching and studying the text. In this volume, Murray long-debated issues that remain relevant to the church: the nature of justification, the relationship between Adam and Christ (Rom. 5), and the identity of the “weak” and the “strong” (Rom. 14). Now offered to readers for the first time in a single-volume format with updated indexes, The Epistle to the Romans features a new and and instructive introduction by Sinclair B. Ferguson that illuminates the context of Murray's timeless commentary with insight into how and why it came to be a landmark volume both academically and pastorally. The Epistle to the Romans is sure to find space once again on the shelf of every pastor, teacher, and theologian.
