This was probably the most I have ever enjoyed reading a commentary (which is good considering it was 941 pages of commentary...). Moo is a thorough scholar, a lucid writer, and weaves academic research and devotional prose together extremely well here. I read this for an exegesis class on Romans, but I was personally helped by reading this quite a bit. I also read Tom Schreiner's commentary on the Greek text with this. I tended to side with Schreiner more on questions of the Law and it's applic ...more

Great Romans commentary. Presents multiple views on lots of important exegetical questions. I especially liked his treatment of the end of Romans 7. (No, I haven't read the whole thing!)

After seeing such high ratings, I purchased this commentary as part of my study in Romans. Then, over the last five months, I have systematically read through the book. Now that I am done, I feel relief. It was not a pleasant read, nor was it particularly enlightening. I chose the word “enlightening” carefully, because the commentary was certainly filled with a great amount of academic details and was therefore often quite interesting. The problem I felt with the book was that it seemed separate ...more

I have not found, and very much doubt I could find, a better commentary on Romans. Extremely helpful and clear. Skilfully untangles some of the complex strands of Pauline thought, hits the balance well on controversial subjects and is humble in desisting from imposition on that which is not clear.
This would be the book I would give to anyone undertaking an in-depth study or teaching series on Romans.

This a a conservative Christian commentary on the book of Romans in the Bible. It is in what I now consider my favorite series of commentaries-abbreviated NICNT/NICOT-New International Commentary on the Old or New Testament. It is non-partisan. It explains what the text says and does not really try to make the text justify any particular denominational opinion which I really like. Some commentaries are devotional-with a focus on what does the text say to ME or how can this be applied today. This ...more

Valuable book, but was way too detailed, so I quit at the end of chapter 1.

Outstanding commentary on Romans!

Moo interacts very well with the New Perspective on Paul. His explanation of "the righteousness of God" and "works of law" (excursus form)is very helpful. He appears to offer something of a nuanced Lutheran view throughout the book. By far, my favorite commentary on Romans.

Excellent commentary on Romans. Easily in the top 5 ever, so say I! Reformed (broadly). Has some sympathy with New Covenant Theology ideas.

Well laid out. Only complaint is his seeming disdain for any notion of the Mosaic Law being at all relevant today, even the moral law.

This is almost universally accepted as the best commentary on Romans. I would agree. Buy it and read it!

Excellent Commentary. In depth and cognizant of many of the current issues related to Pauline studies.
