Romans is a personal book for the author. As a child, he suffered from a bed-ridden illness. His grandmother gave him the Bible to read and it was in Paul’s letter to the Romans when the Holy Spirit began to deal directly with him. Custer has studied Romans from the Greek Testament and has preached through Romans in church and taught it in seminary classes. In the Introduction, the author discusses Paul’s background and the letter’s purpose, setting, and main theme. Custer’s commentary emphasizes the doctrine of God, the names and doctrine of Christ, and the doctrine of the Holy Spirit. He also covers salvation, the church, sanctification, sin, the law, service, eschatology, and inspiration.

“Paul himself was a Roman citizen, not a revolutionary (Acts 22:25–29; 23:27). Yet he knew what it was like to be beaten and put in a Roman jail for preaching the gospel (Acts 16:22–26). Yet he urged believers to pray for kings and all who are in authority (I Tim. 2:1–2).” (Page 236)

“It is dangerous for any person to disregard his conscience. Believers need to have a biblically educated conscience so that they obey God and government, but in that order.” (Page 238)

“Spiritual gifts are limited only by how much God supplies to His servants.” (Pages 224–225)

“We should have tender regard for every member of the body of Christ.” (Page 224)

“Israel to be His people (Deut. 7:6–7), called them as a son out of Egypt (Hos. 11:1), manifested His majesty on Sinai (Exod. 19:18), gave them the law (Exod. 20) and the service of the tabernacle (Exod. 40:33–38), and gave many promises to Abraham and others (Gen. 12:1–3; 15:1–6; 22:15–17; Josh. 1:1–9).” (Page 174)
