Smyth & Helwys Publishing, Inc Romans Smyth & Helwys Bible Commentary

Charles Talbert's Romans leads readers into the biblical world of Paul's Letter to the Romans, while at the same time it seeks to open our ears to the lasting truth of God's word for today. Romans was written to deal with the particular historical problem of the relations between Jewish and Gentile Christians in Rome. The function of Paul's letter was to unify these two, both in their sin and in their salvation. This book provides important textual commentary, images, photographs, maps, art, and more that will bring the text to life.

All volumes in the Smyth & Helwys Bible Commentary series include these features to support interpretation: sidebars in four categories, a wealth of fine art visuals, and a CD-ROM containing all the text and images of the volume in a searchable format.

Smyth & Helwys has gifted the Christian Church with this cutting edge commentary series and they could not have chosen a better exegete for Romans. The reason I think Talbert was such a great choice is due to the fact that Talbert's exegesis of the letter is clearly set in its socio-historical milieu. This commentary should be considered a must have. Dr. Talbert is fully abreast of the vast field of Pauline scholarship and has contributed to it himself with numerous articles and now with this great work. Smyth & Helwys are to be congratulated once again for another first-rate commentary in this series.
