Moo's commentary is clearly the best that I have found on Romans.
C. Hafer
As a student in seminary I have relied heavily upon this commentary for my personal as well as academic study and research.

Even on the rare occasion one ends up disagreeing with Moo's exegesis, you will understand how and why he said what he did.

In every way, Moo's commentary on Romans is the best one can find today. Conservative without being anti-intellectual. Exhaustive without being pedantic. It took over a decade for this commentary to see the light of day, and we should all be thankful it did.
Moo's arguments in Romans 6-8 are cogent, thorough, and brilliant. His understanding of "flesh" in Pauline theology ought to be sent straight to the translation committee of EVERY NT translation board that has ever said (wrongly) "sarx" should be translated "sinful nature." (The NIV, anyone?)
Even on the rare occasion one ends up disagreeing with Moo's exegesis, you will understand how and why he said what he did. And, IMHO, that is the mark of a well-written commentary. He lets the text speak to him before he speaks to us. And I cannot give higher praise to a commentator than that.

Douglas Moo, professor at Trinity Evangelical School, gives the most thorough treatment of the book of Romans to date. Moo's commentary has much to recommend it. His bibliography is extensive and his numerous notes are almost always quite helpful. The layout of this massive tome is surprisingly easy to follow. And his interaction with the history of interpretation is fair and forthright, while his compelling exegetical prowess exposes the flaws in other approaches.
Moreover, Moo shows a unique sensitivity to the eschatological Christ-event as the center of Paul's theology and the basis of his ministry. This dynamic undergirds the whole of his exegesis, and leads to page after page of inspiring insights. Moo treats Paul's use of the Old Testament in depth and does a fair job of it. Writing from an Evangelical perspective, Moo defends the classic creeds of the Protestant faith ably from the text.
Moo's idiom is scholarly, but not inaccessible to the moderately well-read layman. For the sheer size of the volume, Moo is surprisingly economic in his style, and the mass of material collected here becomes a testimony to Moo's thoroughness and the Apostle's richness of thought.
If you are a pastor and there is one commentary on Romans you are going to pick up, this is the place to start.

Moo's commentary on Romans is simply the best one-volume commentary available. He is extremely thorough and spends a considerable amount of space discussing all viewpoints before drawing his own conclusions. His analysis of opposing viewpoints is fair and balanced - often discussing all the points in favor of the interpretation before discussing its flaws.
Much of this work was originally written for a more technical commentary. For this book, Moo moved most of the technical discussion of the Greek to the footnotes. This makes the main body of text much more accessible to readers without a knowledge of Greek, but still provides the technical analysis for those who want it. He basis his discussions on the Greek text but uses the English words in the main text.

Many scholars of the New Testament at some point in their scholarship write a commentary on the book of Romans. Romans is one of those very coherent books to read in the New Testament.
However, this commentary by Douglas Moo, professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, appears to be a thorough and magnificent work on the book of Romans. Moo makes comments on both the English and Greek text of Romans. Moo's commentary on Romans seems to excel other commentaries on Romans in these three categories:
1. It has the deepest exegetical notes on the Greek text of Romans by using thousands of footnotes dealing with the Greek text.
2. It has the deepest theological explanation on Romans including many additional excurses on serious points of theology.
3. It give the most complete consideration of alternative interpretations of the text.
I have read many other commentaries on both the Greek and English text of Romans and I can tell you that this commentary on Romans by Dr. Moo will probably not be superceded by any for decades to come. It well worth the price since this commentary will provide material which the reader can chew on for a long, long time.

I have approximately 20 commentaries on Romans and have been teaching Romans in my church for the past year. Moo's commentary is clearly the best that I have found on Romans.

The greatest strength I have found is that Moo does a solid job of exegesis and sticks to the actual text. Opinions are voiced, but only after throughtful exegesis. The book is rather technical, but easily readable. It's one of the few commentaries where both scholars and novices can come away with something substantial. Moo also does a good job of keeping passages in their proper context to give an accurate interpretation. I don't agree with all of his conclusions, but I respect his opinion and agree with at least 90%.

By the way, I was at first leary of purchasing this book because it was part of the NICNT. I have several of the revised volumes from this series and most of the older volumes. On both series, quality is very spotty. Several great books and several that are so lame that they are useless. This is not only a great Romans commentary, but I believe this is the best volume in the NICNT series.
