Format: Hardcover
Joseph Fitzmyer is a foremost Roman Catholic figure the latter half of this century. His New Testament scholarship and exegetical/historical prowess is rightly world-renowned; and his two volume set on Luke is a 5 star commentary. Fitzmyer, living up to his reputation, gives a scholarly and penetrating treatment of the text of Romans; and, to his credit, ends up sounding more like Luther and Calvin than the council of Trent. Nevertheless, Fitzmyer is a good Catholic, and, though shrouded at times by his meticulous and forthright treatment of the text, his Catholicism can be discerned at times to the critical reader. One wonders if his Catholic commitments keep him from delving deeper into the riches of this extraordinary epistle. But at certain points Fitzmyer is very perceptive and his exegesis enlightening.
As a part of the Anchor Bible, Fitzmyer's Romans is highly critical and scholarly--not intended for the uninformed or novice in Biblical studies. Among the critical Romans scholars Fitzmyer is probably not at the very head of the list (Cranfield is the best), but he's a well-recongized scholar whose well worth the read.

As always, Fitzmyer provides a thorough discussion of every element of his topic, this time it's the letter to the Romans, while still being incredibly readable. He also approaches his subject with an open mind, no agenda detected here.
