Paul’s Letter to the Romans: A Commentary

Building on his own fresh translation from the Greek, [Arland] Hultgren walks readers through Romans verse by verse, illuminating the text with helpful comments, probing into major puzzles, and highlighting the letter’s most inspiring features. He also demonstrates the forward-looking, missional character of Paul’s epistle — written, as Hultgren suggests, to introduce Roman Christians to the major themes of Paul’s theology and to inspire in them both confidence in the soundness of his teaching and support for his planned missionary efforts in Spain.

Here’s the Table of Contents.

  1. I wonder what he says about Romans 6. Was that the pre-christian Paul or Post conversion Paul wrestling with himself? “That which I ought to do I do not do”…i will wait for Jim’s review.

  2. I’m curious about whether Mr. Hultgren discusses the controversy centering around the close of ch.14: “He who has doubts is condemned if he eats…” (cf. also. 1 Cor. 8:11). Does Paul believe that God’s gifts and call are truly revoked by this species of sin?
