From the author of the acclaimed Parables of Jesus commentary comes this new volume exploring one of the most significant theological documents ever written. Drawing on more than thirty years of experience teaching Romans, Arland Hultgren engages the text of Paul's letter using careful exegesis in conversation with scores of contemporary biblical scholars.

Building on his own fresh translation from the Greek, Hultgren walks readers through Romans verse by verse, illuminating the text with helpful comments, probing into major puzzles, and highlighting the letter's most inspiring features. He also demonstrates the forward-looking, missional character of Paul's epistle -- written, as Hultgren suggests, to introduce Roman Christians to the major themes of Paul's theology and to inspire in them both confidence in the soundness of his teaching and support for his planned missionary efforts in Spain.

Ideal for pastors and serious students of the Bible, Hultgren's commentary includes eight appendices that discuss in detail such issues as "Romans 1:26-27 and Homosexuality" and "Pistis Christou: Faith in or of Christ?"

"Arland Hultgren's commentary on Romans is well researched and clearly written, his arguments concise and generally persuasive. There are fresh insights aplenty. For instance, his exegesis of Romans 14:1–15:13 provides a provocative solution to the issue of who 'the strong' and 'the weak' were by convincingly arguing that there is diatribe at work in this paraenesis. Pastoral sensitivity abounds. For example, his exegesis of Romans 1:26-27 in the commentary proper and in his appendix on that passage takes full account of ancient and contemporary contexts and terminology and challenges long-standing views. This gem of a commentary will stimulate the minds and warm the hearts of many a teacher, preacher, and pastor."
