At every significant juncture in the life of Christian community the letter to the Romans has stood, and for every giant of faith ever raised up to effect some change in that community, it has furnished the fire. The book of Romans figured prominently in the conversion of Augustine, and its themes were central to the efforts of the Reformers. John Wesley found his heart “strangely warmed” at the reading of Luther’s preface to the epistle, and Karl Barth began to understand God amid the ravages of two World Wars while reading Romans. In this volume, Roy A. Harrisville helps illuminate the central themes of Romans and a history of its interpretation. This commentary also includes an introduction to the interpretation of Romans, a detailed outline of the entire epistle, a chapter-by-chapter commentary, and a lengthy bibliography.
