       In Paul's Letter to the Romans Arland Hultgren engages the text of Paul's letter using careful theological exegesis in conversation with scores of contemporary biblical scholars and the major issues defining interpretation of this seminal New Testament book today.

The commentary proceeds pericope-by-pericope with each receiving a fresh translation, brief technical notes on text and translation, a short summary-style 'General Comment' (excellent for quick reference to Hultgren's interpretation of the passage), and a longer section called a 'Detailed Comment' which combines all of the information necessary for Hultgren to provide a thoroughly worked out interpretation of the passage in conversation with other scholars. Following his work on each pericope, Hultgren provides a bibliography for that specific passage making it very easy for students, scholars, and pastors to idenify secondary resources immediately germane to specific pericopes in the epistle.

Thus, Hultegren's commentary works for those who wish to access interpretations of passages in Romans quickly, as well as for those who wish to engage in careful conversation with each passage and the issues surrounding it. In addition to scholarship generally, Hultgren also pays close attention to translation often comparing several English versions to discern which provides the most accurate readings, and to unearth just what it is that Paul is getting at in Romans.

Along the way Hultgren also establishes the theological message of the letter taking a Traditional Protestant view of Paul's teaching on 'justification by faith' while showing the essentially forward-looking, missional character of Paul's letter - written, as Hultgren suggests, to introduce Paul-the-theologian to Roman believers and inspire their support for his planned missionary efforts in the Western Mediterranean.

Finally, Hultgren also provides seven appendices on the following contemporary debates:

  • Appendix 1: The 'Righteousness of God' in Paul
  • Appendix 2: Romans 1:26-27 and Homosexuality
  • Appendix 3: Pistis Christou: Faith in or of Christ?
  • Appendix 4: The Imagery of Romans 3:25
  • Appendix 5: The Text of Romans 5:1
  • Appendix 6: The Identity of the 'I' in Romans 7
  • Appendix 7: The Church as the Body of Christ in the Letters of Paul
  • Appendix 8: House Churches and Communities in Rome
This thoughtful commentary, ideal for pastors and serious students of the Bible.
