Romans – Douglas Moo – NIV Application Commentary

NIV Application Commentary RomansDouglas J. Moo is the author of the Revelation volume in the NIV Application Commentary series.

Moo has also written the Romans volume in the NICNT series.

While the NIVAC commentary has received positive reviews, many prefer the NICNT volume.

Our culture does not encourage thoughtful reflection on truth. Yet living the gospel in a postmodern culture demands that Christians understand and internalize the truth about God and his plan for the world.

Paul’s letter to the Romans remains one of the most important expressions of Christian truth ever written.

Its message forces us to evaluate who we are, who God is, and what our place in this world ought to be.

Going beyond the usual commentary, this volume brings the meaning of Paul’s great letter into the twenty-first century.

Douglas Moo comments on the text and then explores issues in Paul’s culture and in ours that help us understand the ultimate meaning of each paragraph.

A final section suggests ways in which the eternal theology of Romans can be understood and lived out in our modern culture.

Douglas J. Moo is Blanchard Professor of New Testament at Wheaton College. He holds a PhD from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. His work centers on understanding the text of the New Testament and its application today. [1]

Series Reviews

“It is encouraging to find a commentary that is not only biblically trustworthy but also contemporary in its application. The NIV Application Commentary will prove to be a helpful tool in the pastor’s sermon preparation. I use it and recommend it.”
— Charles F. Stanley, pastor, First Baptist Church of Atlanta

“The NIV Application Commentary series doesn’t fool around. It gets right down to business, bringing this ancient and powerful Word of God into the present so that it can be heard and delivered with all the freshness of a new day, with all the immediacy of a friend’s embrace.”
— Eugene H. Peterson

“The NIV Application Commentary series promises to be of very great service to all who preach and teach the Word of God.”
— J. I. Packer, Regent College

The NIVAC Series

Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible.

But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own.

They focus on the original meaning of the passage but don’t discuss its contemporary application.

The information they offer is valuable—but the job is only half done!

The NIV Application Commentary Series helps bring both halves of the interpretive task together.

This unique, award-winning series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into our postmodern context.

It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it speaks powerfully today.
