Romans, Second Edition (Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament | BECNT)

Format: Digital
ISBN: 9781540960054


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.

In his introduction to the second edition, Dr. Schreiner emphasizes his efforts to integrate recent scholarly literature on Romans in a thoroughgoing manner, while avoiding merely creating a commentary on commentaries. His perspectives on this great letter of Paul remain essentially the same, albeit with some significant changes, particularly to how he views the best way to define "the righteousness of God."

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.

Praise for the First Edition

Schreiner's commentary on Romans is a very good contribution to the study of this Pauline epistle. Schreiner has asked the right questions about it and given balanced answers to them. His commentary will be a great help to students, teachers, and general educated readers of the Pauline letters, especially to pastors who seek to preach on Romans.

—Joseph Fitzmyer, Professor Emeritus, Catholic University of America

As I preach through Romans I will continue to reach for this commentary with joy and hope, as I have since I received a copy in manuscript form. There are at least four reasons. First, Schreiner bows with reverence before the authority of Paul's letter as God's inspired Word. Second, he submits meticulously to the grammatical and historical particularities of the text, tracing out Paul's line of thinking in his own terms. Third, he wrestles with recent scholarly thought (without getting lost). Fourth, he is faithful in holding up the manifestly God-centered theme of this greatest of all letters, namely, that 'in Romans God's ultimate purpose is to display his glory to all people'.

—John Piper, Pastor, Bethlehem Baptist Church
