In keeping with the aims of the Pillar series, Colin Kruse in this commentary explains Romans to serious pastors, teachers, and students of the Bible. Kruse -- a well-known evangelical scholar -- solidly bases his exegesis on the Greek text, in conversation with scholarly literature, both ancient and modern, and with special attention to the literature of the last thirty years.

This commentary shows how Paul expounds and defends the gospel against the background of God's sovereign action as creator, judge, and redeemer of the world. In the process, Kruse elucidates Paul's teaching about matters of concern in the Roman house churches -- issues that remain important today. Kruse's clarity and economy in dealing with such complex and important matters, along with the other features mentioned above, promise to make this commentary an enduring standard for years to come.
