C. K. Barrett's exegetical prowess, evidenced most distinctly in his volumes on the First and Second Epistles to the Corinthians, also in the Black's series, has long been appreciated in the world of biblical studies. Now, in his long-awaited, newly revised, verse-by-verse exposition of Romans, Barrett further enhances our understanding of the book of Romans, early Christianity, the apostle Paul and his theology, and the New Testament. This revised edition has been reworked and updated, and the inclusion of an index of ancient sources further adds to its usefulness. A master of thoroughness, historical backgrounds, and ancient languages, Barrett offers insights for scholars, ministers, students, and anyone who wants to know more about Paul's Epistle to the Romans.
C. K. Barrett is Emeritus Professor of Divinity at the University of Durham. He is especially known for having authored numerous scholarly articles and books, including Commentary on St. John, The First Epistle to the Corinthians, The Second Epistle to the Corinthians (in this collection), The New Testament Background: Selected Documents, and Acts, part of the International Critical Commentaries.
