Review

Journal of Biblical Literature
"Morris has done something significant in a field in which it is terribly difficult to do anything of significance. He has produced a carefully crafted, clearly expressed exposition of Romans from which specialist and nonspecialist alike can benefit."

Choice
"Provides a great amount of data and is a good survey of the literature. Morris writes in an easy-to-read, devotional style."

Southwestern Journal of Theology
"Mature, clear, and readable. . . . This commentary will be viewed as Morris's magnum opus. It is worthy of that accolade."

Back in January I started a slow study through Romans along with the Pillar New Testament Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans written by Leon Morris. This morning, I finished the study.

When I started the study, I was looking to walk through something that wouldn't spend too much time teaching the reader how to apply the text (not that that's a bad thing) but would spend more time exegeting the actual text and leave the application up to the individual. That's quite exactly what this commentary did; I know that has a name, but I'm not accustomed to it.

The format of the commentary is simple and familiar. A block of scripture is laid out, followed by a deconstruction and explanation of each verse. Explanations on any one verse ranged anywhere from one or two sentences, up to three or four pages, but with most of them coming in around two paragraphs. Multiple verses are scarcely combined into one comment. The first four chapters of Romans make up about forty percent of the commentary, as much of the foundation for the Apostle's theological statement fall within those chapters.

Morris has a manner of writing that communicates an appealing sense of humility. While he holds his particular views, he also (usually) uncritically presents the opposing views and the arguments for all of them. During my reading of the book, this style helped me to look at the text and think critically for myself about what is said. In the majority of cases, Morris' standpoint is the most rational and represents of the majority view of bible scholars.

Morris is clearly a member of the reformed theology tradition, but in his writing he presents himself as firstly committed to scripture.

I am so glad this commentary is still available. I had to do a study of Romans for college, and this is one of the books I chose. It is and excellent study of the book, very approachable for the layman, and very rewarding for understanding the Pauline theology of the book.

This is a good commentary on Romans by a fine scholar. He seems to have interpreted the theme of the work more from Systematic theology than the text itself. But all in all he deals with the text well, if not with all the depth one might like.
This is a good commentary for getting to know the issues surrounding Romans. For a thorough discussion of them, the commentaries of Cranfield, Moo and Schreiner are all preferable.

Leon Morris always does a solid job, and this commentary is no exception. He deals with the text, presents his interpretations on the tricky parts (which is the main reason an exegete should use a commentary), and uses sound exegetical technique throughout. I highly recommend this as a comprehensive and solid commentary on the Letter to the Romans.
