Richard Longenecker is the author of the Romans volume in the New International Greek Testament Commentary series.
Thomas R. Schreiner writes, “All the virtues of Longenecker’s work are evident here: in-depth exegesis, careful evaluation of the literary and historical setting of the letter, and consideration of the letter’s message for readers today. Interpreters of Romans are indebted to Longenecker and will want to consult his work regularly.”
The Review of Biblical Literature noted, “For its careful attention to the text, summaries of key exegetical debates of the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries, theological connections, attempts to contextualize Paul’s letter, and emphasis on 5:1–8:39 as Paul’s contribution to the Roman churches, this is a valuable commentary. It will be a solid, useful resource for students of Romans for years to come.”
Bibliotheca Sacra described it as “a very good commentary and will take its place among the most consulted Romans commentaries available in English.”
