“Romans” in Acts - First Corinthians. NIB. Abingdon Press, 2002.
I'm not surprised this commentary isn't higher on the list, but I am disappointed. I think it can be attributed to two things: (1.)It is a challenge to read and comprehend. (2.) Many of us prefer a commentary that agrees with and reinforces our presuppositions and prior theological commitments. Wright's commentary will stand the test of time, however. It will outlive its detractors. The great strength of his writings generally and, of course, of this commentary particularly is the skill of the exegesis which underlies all his work. His treatment of chapters 9-11 alone are worth the price of the book! Another strength of the commentary are the introductions to each section of the epistle. Wright keeps before the reader the big picture of Romans which is essential to following Paul's overarching argument and Wright's detailed exegesis of it. [Full Review]
