Overview

The New International Commentary (NIC) is decades-long project has become recognized by scholars, pastors, and serious Bible students as critical yet orthodox commentary marked by solid biblical scholarship within the evangelical Protestant tradition. The NIC serves as authoritative scriptural guides, bridging the cultural gap between today’s world and the Bible’s. Each volume in the series aims to help us hear God’s word as clearly as possible.

Paul’s letter to the Romans has been called “the quintessence and perfection of saving doctrine.” Perhaps the most challenging and thoroughly doctrinal book of the entire New Testament, Romans deals with many issues that are basic to Christian theology and practice. In this volume respected New Testament scholar Douglas J. Moo provides a superb study of Paul’s letter to the Roman Christians and restates the enduring message of Romans for Christians today. For more than twenty years Douglas Moo’s NICNT volume on Romans has been providing pastors, students, and scholars with profound insight into Paul’s most famous letter. In this thorough revision of his commentary, Moo deals with issues that have come into prominence since the first edition (1996), incorporating the latest research and rewriting the text throughout for better comprehension.

Based on the English text while incorporating the underlying Greek throughout, this commentary focuses both on theological meaning and on contemporary significance. Moo contributes to the continuing debate regarding Paul’s teaching on such issues as Jewish law and the relationship between Jews and Gentiles in the people of God. He also critically interacts with “the new perspective on Paul,” highlights Romans’ emphasis on “practical divinity,” and traces the gospel throughout the epistle.

  • Verse-by-verse commentary
  • In-depth discussion of textual and critical matters
  • Introduction to the authorship, date, purpose, structure, and theology of Romans
All the virtues of Doug Moo’s work in the first edition of his Romans commentary are retained in the updated second edition. The commentary displays careful and rigorous exegesis, reflecting the mature judgment of a seasoned scholar who has considered the meaning of Romans for many years. At the same time, the theology of Paul’s greatest letter is explained clearly and brilliantly.... Moo’s first edition of Romans is the best commentary on Romans available, and the only volume that surpasses it is his second.

Thomas R. Schreiner, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

The passing of two decades has by no means rendered the careful exegesis of Moo’s 1996 commentary out of date. Still, this second edition allows him to interact with the most recent Pauline scholarship. To this scholarship it serves as a reliable guide—at the same time as it remains, and will continue to remain, a fine guide to the argument of Paul’s most weighty epistle.

Stephen Westerholm, McMaster University

    The first edition, 1996, is listed at bestcommentaries website as the best commentary of Romans, with score way up over other commentaries. This second edition should be even better, after more than 20 years of better research on the book. I value the higher price. The paper edition is enough if the purpose of buying it is just reading or basic study. But for more serious study and research, the thousands of links, tooltips and tags provided by the software is indispensable to helping save hours and hours of study not provided by the paper edition, unless we can afford the time of opening bibles and references. I hv not bought this though, so cannot honestly give a rating, soon hopefully.
