The Epistle to the Romans is an invaluable standard commentary, a true book of devotion. The late H. C. G. Moule, former dean of Trinity College, succeeds in making this difficult epistle luminous while demonstrating its practical lessons. This verse-by-verse commentary includes Moule’s own translation of the text with an emphasis on an explanation of details. He also puts into context the writings of Paul by vividly describing the man and the time and place in which he lived.

About H. C. G. Moule
H. C. G. Moule (1841-1920) was the son of the vicar of Fordington, Dorchester, and was educated at home prior to attending university at Cambridge. He was ordained in 1867 and was curate at Fordington before being appointed as dean of Trinity College, Cambridge, 1873 to 1876. During his tenure at Cambridge he became first principal of Ridley Hall Theological College, in 1881, and Norrisian Professor of Divinity in 1899. In 1901, he succeeded B.F. Westcott as Bishop of Durham.
In 1898 he became honorary chaplain to Queen Victoria and in 1900 represented evangelicals at the Round Table Conference on Holy Communion. Moule later chaired the missionary section of the Pan-Anglican Congress and was closely associated with the Keswick Convention. Although a profound scholar, he could speak and write for ordinary people as this commentary demonstrates. Noted for the many hymns and poems he penned, Bishop Moule’s works also include expositions and commentaries on nearly all the Epistles, as well as books on devotion. He is the author of the popular Doctrine of Man, Outlines of Christian Doctrine (a down-to-earth work on theology), and contributed to The Fundamentals (4 volumes).
