For hundreds of years Christendom has been blessed with Bible commentaries written by great men of God highly respected for their godly walk and their insight into spiritual truth. The Crossway Classic Commentaries present the very best work on individual Bible books, carefully adapted for maximum understanding and usefulness for today's believers.

Perhaps there is no clearer and more systematic treatise on the gospel of Jesus Christ than that found in Paul's Epistle to the Romans. Christian believers through the centuries have fed deeply on its themes of the sinfulness of man, the richness of God's mercy, the transforming power of Jesus Christ in the repentant life, the believer's participation in the Savior's death and resurrection, and the practical implications of spiritual truth for daily life.

This classic commentary is a treasure for all who desire a deeper walk with God. Whether used for supplementary reading or for careful study, it will prove profitable to every follower of Christ who avails himself or herself of its gems.

Review: Romans-Crossway Classic Commentary

User Review  - e rosemund - Christianbook.com

An awesome devotional commentary. Old is not always worse. The book is worth getting just for his exposition of Rom 5.. Granted, the Sanders "revolution hadnt' occurred, but this book shows a solid reformed view of Romans and is worth the money before reading more trendy modern expositions Read full review
