Robert Haldane's Exposition of Romans, both in its contents and in the power of its influence, stands among the foremost of the many treatments of this epistle. Haldane writes both to instruct and to move; he is both an expositor and a preacher, and while he upholds orthodoxy it is not as an end in itself, it must lead to love and life. This exposition has inspired many others to enter more deeply into that same spirit. As a commentary, Thomas Chalmers 'strongly recommended it'; Spurgeon put it in the front rank; and, more recently, Martyn Lloyd-Jones owed 'much profit and pleasure' to it, characterising its contents as unsurpassed in 'warmth of spirit' and 'practical application'. Haldane was a wealthy descendant of Scottish nobility who devoted his wealth and talents to the spread of the gospel after his conversion during the French Revolution.

This is possibly the VERY BEST commentary ever written on the book of Romans. You wanna know what "Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated" means? Read Haldane. No hedging here. Only solid biblical exposition. Haldane, as his predecessor Calvin before him, believed in the antithesis of the gospel. God sends the gospel to the Elect for one purpose and to the reprobate for a completely different purpose. If you are determined on maintaining your Santa Claus view of God then stay away from John Calvin and Robert Haldane. They will have none of it!
