More than 25 years in the making, this landmark work not only untangles Paul's complicated (and sometimes convoluted) chain of thought, but also highlights his upcoming mission to Spain and explains how he reframed classical codes of honor and shame. A signal contribution to this Mt. Everest of epistles. 1000 pages, hardcover. Fortress.

Review 1 for Romans: Hermeneia, a Critical and Historical Commentary on the Bible
Date:September 17, 2010
Absolutely amazing. It is quite expensive, but worth every penny - I guarantee you. A huge bibliography with several indexes (Greek words, subject matter, authors cited, Bible and early Christian works). They break down every verse and use Greek exegesis to explain the verse and how it relates to the given passage and chapter. They not only show textual variants within the Greek, but they also explain the possibilities of why the particular variants exist. This is the first book within the commentary series I purchased - and surely won't be the last. You won't regret spending the amount of money on this commentary.
