about

Leading New Testament scholar Douglas Moo offers an accessible guide to the book of Romans. This second edition is updated throughout and features a new design.

"It is hard to imagine a more reliable guide to Romans than Douglas Moo. His expertise as a commentator is renowned and rightly so. In this work he distills his knowledge in a way that is accessible to the ordinary person. If one wants to become acquainted with Paul's theology and gospel in Romans, this volume is the perfect place to begin."
--Thomas R. Schreiner, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"This clearly explained, beautifully illustrated introduction to Romans by one of the leading scholars in the field will be immensely useful to anyone interested in the letter. One could not find a more experienced and highly skilled guide through the terrain of Romans than Douglas Moo. The well-chosen maps and photographs and the thoughtfully crafted discussion questions make this book an ideal choice for introductory classes on the letter, Bible study groups, and anyone who wants to understand this engaging and powerful text."
--Frank Thielman, Beeson Divinity School

"Douglas Moo is the preeminent evangelical Pauline scholar of our generation. His Encountering the Book of Romans is a wonderful distillation of nearly four decades of solid exegetical work on Paul's most famous letter. In this updated edition, Moo continues to lead students through the major blocks and themes of the letter in a way that is easy to understand but does not dumb down the sophistication of Paul's message. The commentary is enhanced with many helpful charts, summaries, tables, and pictures. A great resource for students embarking on a study of Romans for the first time."
--Michael F. Bird, Ridley Melbourne Mission and Ministry College, Australia

"The product of a notable Pauline scholar and an experienced teacher, this textbook provides an excellent and reliable guide to reading Paul's Letter to the Romans. For those encountering this letter for the first time, this work will bring alive Paul's important message for all believers. For those revisiting this letter, this work also serves as a helpful introduction to the scholarly reading of this Pauline letter. Particularly useful are the numerous sidebars that deal with various theological, structural, linguistic, and contextual issues."
--David W. Pao, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
