Arland Hultgren’s new commentary guides readers verse-by-verse through Romans. Likening Romans to a missionary support letter addressed to Christians in the empire’s capital, Hultgren creates a conversation between theological exegesis and contemporary biblical scholarship. He also focuses on several key features of Paul’s theology.

Hultgren has presented his material in a simple, user-friendly format. Each new block of text begins with an English translation followed by notes on the Greek text and its translation, general commentary, detailed commentary and a comprehensive bibliography for further study. This text is recommended for use by both students and pastors.
