The past eight months in our Men’s Bible Study group has been spent in the book of Romans. Tomorrow we tackle chp 16 and we will then move onto 1 Corinthians. There are countless commentaries on Romans. In the process of preparing I have found Douglas Moo’s book Encountering the Book of Romans: A Theological Survey so helpful. While this is not a verse by verse commentary on the epistle it is as good as a lot of commentaries out there. Of course Moo has written one of the best commentaries on Roman’s in the New International Commentary series. However, while Moo’s commentary may be too technical for some, this book (still weighing in at 214 pages) is a fine and accessible treatment of this epistle. It balances textual information with cultural historical background all in an easy and straight forward way.
