For more than twenty years Douglas Moo’s NICNT volume on Romans has been providing pastors, students, and scholars with profound insight into Paul’s most famous letter. In this thorough revision of his commentary, Moo deals with issues that have come into prominence since the first edition (1996), incorporating the latest research and rewriting the text throughout for better comprehension.
Exegetically astute and theologically minded, Moo interacts critically with the new perspective on Paul, highlights the emphasis in Romans on “practical divinity,” and traces the theme of the gospel throughout the letter. His Letter to the Romans in this second edition will inform and enlighten a new generation of serious Bible readers.

“All the virtues of Doug Moo’s work in the first edition of his Romans commentary are retained in the updated second edition. The commentary displays careful and rigorous exegesis, reflecting the mature judgment of a seasoned scholar who has considered the meaning of Romans for many years. At the same time, the theology of Paul’s greatest letter is explained clearly and brilliantly. . . . Moo’s first edition of Romans is the best commentary on Romans available, and the only volume that surpasses it is his second.”

“The passing of two decades has by no means rendered the careful exegesis of Moo’s 1996 commentary out of date. Still, this second edition allows him to interact with the most recent Pauline scholarship. To this scholarship it serves as a reliable guide?at the same time as it remains, and will continue to remain, a fine guide to the argument of Paul’s most weighty epistle.”
