Voted one of Christianity Today's 1995 Books of the Year When Paul first penned his letter to the house churches of Rome, his purpose was to gain prayerful support for his coming mission to the western reaches of the Mediterranean world. Little did he know that for two millennia this tautly tuned exposition of the gospel would echo through church and academy, market and home. Or that it would leap great oceans to reverberate through lands and hearts beyond the farthest edges of his world. John Stott, in this new paperback edition previously released with the title Romans, joins a chorus of distinguished voices of the church who have pondered and lived the great themes of Romans, and who have tuned our ears to hear its rich harmonies and meditate on its broad vision. In the classic tradition of great Christian leaders who have commented on Romans, Stott expounds Paul's words, themes and arguments. The power of the gospel, the righteousness of God revealed from heaven, is clearly addressed to today's men and women who have answered its summons. Not only is Stott deeply acquainted with the text and context of Romans, he is also conversant with the most recent Pauline scholarship. Even more important, he views Romans from his own pastoral and missionary perspective, an outloook shaped in turn by the great vision of the apostle. Here is a commentary for those who live on the edge of the third millennium, a commentary spanning the two worlds of Romans--Paul's and ours.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
|Solid teaching Feb 3, 2007|
|This commentary has many tremendous insights into the book of Romans. Romans is one of the richest resources of truth within the Bible and John Stoot does a good job of unpacking it. The book is written from a framework of the reader having a strong prior understanding of the Scriptures. It is probably not considered a highly scholarly work, but it is not for the average reader to pick up for light reading either.|
|Great Commentary Jan 11, 2007|
|Even though John Stott doesn't consider this book and its companions as commentaries, they do the trick for laypersons. There are great explanations of scripture from a conservative theological point of view meaning the Bible is considered the inerrant word of God. He brings competing interpretations into the mix and then tells you his choice and why. Great for small group Bible study leaders for students studying on their own. Best if used with his Bible Study Guides. You can't go wrong with any of his studies or "commentaries."|
|Well written Jan 11, 2007|
|Great book, understandable, clear, informative and most helpful with the study of Romans.|
|An Excellent Exposition of Romans Jun 30, 2006|
|John R.W Stott is one of the best scholarly pastors in the world because of his academic zeal coupled with a shrewd sense of how scripture applies to our lives. This really comes through in his Romans commentary. After a brief introduction where he descrobes how the book of Romans has impacted great Christian people of faith like Martin Luther, John Wesley, and Karl Barth, he dives right into the text. He identifies Romans 1:16-17 as the main theme of the book, and he teaches the federal headship of Adam in Romans 5. He sees Romans 7 as the present experience of the struggling believer, and he sees Romans 9 as teaching God's unconditional election of certain individuals to salvation and others to specific roles in redemptive history if not salvation (Pharoah, Esau).|
The book is a treasure trove of good thoughts for preachers of the Romans to consider. It is highly recommended.
|If You Only Read One Book On Christianity Read This Book Apr 13, 2006|
|This is the best book about the best Book of the Bible. Romans has it all and John Stott explains all of it - step-by-step, verse-by-verse. This book answers all of questions most Christians have: why did Jesus have to die? How do I become justified, "saved" or right with God? Why is there sin in the world? What place does the "Old Testament" or "The Law" have in the Christian world? If "The Law" can't save me, what are the ethical and moral rules that should govern my actions? What is the "wrath of God"? What is all this business about the Holy Spirit? If you read one book about the Bible, read this book. |
