One of the classic works of the Reformation. It was Luther's wrestling with the writings of Paul that led to his breakthrough insight of "justification by faith," where the sinner comes to rely on Christ's merits, not his own. Exegesis that has changed the course of history. 224 pages, softcover.

Customer Reviews for Commentary on Romans
Review 1 for Commentary on Romans
Date:December 28, 2011
Luther, like several other great thinkers, could not come to peace with justification by any other means, no matter how hard he tried. It was only by grace that we achieve a right relationship with God. This commentary reflects his struggles and conclusion.
An understanding of his wrestling and finally clear expression of his understanding of Paul is basic to understanding the force set loose in the reformation.

Review 2 for Commentary on Romans

K. Alan Pruitt
Mueller's translation of Luther's classic commentary on Romans is truly masterful. It is written in such a manner that those new to the faith will find the deep things of Romans clearly revealed to them and yet even the most seasoned scholar will find it to be a treasure trove of insight. This book qualifies as a Must-Have.
