For more than twenty years Douglas Moo’s NICNT volume on Romans has been providing pastors, students, and scholars with profound insight into Paul’s most famous letter. In this thorough revision of his commentary, Moo deals with issues that have come into prominence since the first edition (1996), incorporating the latest research and rewriting the text throughout for better comprehension.

Exegetically astute and theologically minded, Moo interacts critically with the new perspective on Paul, highlights the emphasis in Romans on “practical divinity,” and traces the theme of the gospel throughout the letter. His Letter to the Romans in this second edition will inform and enlighten a new generation of serious Bible readers.

I highly recommend Moo's commentary on the Letter to the Romans, the attention to detail and focus on all arguments relating to a verse or section of scripture added with his own take and reason for it gives an exceptionally good commentary on Romans. A must-have. However, on some more difficult chapters in Romans, I would have liked for Moo to do more Book Contextual analysis before doing Canononical Contextual analysis.

Moo's revised commentary is slightly bigger than the first edition and retains everything that made the first edition so great. It is a detailed, scholarly, yet accessible commentary. Moo omitted some older references and added new ones. The text reads slightly different in many instances, but Moo has not significantly changed his mind in the commentary itself. While Moo thoroughly engages with the New Perspective on Paul (having a 15 page excursion), he also engages the so called Radical New Perspective on Paul (or the "Paul Within Judaism" appraoch). In respect of the latter, he added a 5 page excursion. This commentary will remain one of the most important commentaries on Romans.
