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.

Top Highlights

“Paul means, a worship consisting not in outward rites but in the movement of man’s inward being, resulting in concrete outward action. This is better described as ‘spiritual worship’ than as ‘rational’, for Paul is not thinking of what is meant in modern English by ‘rational’.” (Page 213)

“It is thus overwhelmingly probable that Romans was written from Corinth (conceivably from Cenchreae) during the three months before Paul left Greece for Jerusalem.” (Page 3)

“There was a considerable Jewish colony in first-century Rome.2 It originated in the large number of Jewish slaves brought to the city by Pompey after his capture of Jerusalem in 63 bc and from that time appears steadily to have increased, notwithstanding occasional repressive measures.” (Page 5)

“Tarsus was a Hellenistic city in which many faiths and philosophies were taught” (Page 1)

“Sin is an inward disposition of rebellion against God arising out of exaltation of the self. It has always been in the world since Adam’s fall because it is inseparably bound up with man’s desire to return to the lost state of bliss and immortality, his will to life in and for himself. This is an unavoidable consequence of man’s existence in a world which has once turned away from God. But it is not to be identified with the performance of wicked actions. Sin is turned into transgression, and becomes visible and assessable, only when a law is given.” (Page 105)
