Perhaps more than any other New Testament epistle, Paul's letter to the Romans has been the focus of Christian reflection throughout the church's history, transforming the minds and convicting the hearts of believers.
In Romans 9-16: New Testament VIII, a volume from the Reformation Commentary on Scriptures series, Philip Krey and Peter Krey guide readers with care through a diversity of Reformation-era commentary on the second half of Paul's letter to the Roman church. Among the difficult issues addressed by Paul and commented on by early modern exegetes were the predestination of God's elect, the destiny of Israel, the role of Gentiles in salvation history, the ethical demands of the Christian life, and the Christian's relationship to the state.
The volume draws on a variety of resources—including commentaries, sermons, treatises, and confessions—as well as gathers reflections from voices both familiar and lesser-known across the breadth of theological traditions, including Lutherans, Reformed, Radicals, Anglicans, and Roman Catholics. This assemblage of Reformation-era reflections provides indispensable resources for contemporary preachers, enables scholars to better understand the depth and breadth of Reformation biblical commentary, and aids the ongoing transformation of the hearts, minds, and lives of people today.
