Format: Paperback
One of the best commentaries I have had the pleasure, and I do not use that word lightly, of reading: not only intelligent and 'theoretical' commentary, but extremely practical and pastoral applications as well. Archbishop Dmitri uses his own learned knowledge with that of a number of Saints in their Commentaries and writings together with the Orthodox Church's liturgy and hymnography to explain the meaning and context of St Paul's Letter to the Romans.
Having read His Eminence's books on the Miracles and Parables, and now this one, I shall be looking for more Commentaries and books from him.

Format: Paperback
I tired of reading ho-hum commentaries a long time ago, and read the homilies (sermons) of the Church Fathers on scripture instead. Then, I found this book, and I fell in love. Tenderly, with depth and a gift of teaching Archbishop Dimtri opened the scriptures for us.

He takes us into Paul's experience, into the times, into the Greek words, into the etymology of the Greek words -- and why? because when he reveals all of this to us we understand that the words Paul chose were unambiguous and imbued with meaning that will illumine us.

It's scholarly, but written for the layman. It's challenging, but it makes reading scripture easier. It's one of my favorite books. I read it over and over again. His other books are very good. I only wish he'd written more.

Format: Paperback
I start off by stating that I have had a bad taste in my mouth over the way the Book of Romans has been misinterpreted. I have studied the Book of Romans many times, and each time the teacher pushed a calvinist agenda, ignoring or twisting the facts. The Archbishop will have none of that. He goes into the various tenses of the translation, be it the Aorist Tense or other, to state exactly what was meant. He goes for the complete picture. Most calvinists in their discussion of Romans 8 neglect to "compare Scripture with Scripture" as they neglect I Timothy 2:4, which precedes the mechanics of Predestination of Romans 8, changing its total context with the lesson that one must have Faith and do Good Works so that God can foreknow them to the end of Salvation. He puctuates this with citing Jeremiah 18, where God sends Jeremiah on a field trip to explain the Potter & Clay metaphor, i.e. God foreknows the intent and quality of the clay before he shapes it to its best use. This cleared up much for me!

I would be remiss if I didn't state that the Archbishop prodeuces some surprise prophecy in Romans 11, which states that the Jews will not initially take to Christ, but the gentiles will. Towards the end of time, the Gentiles will fall away as the Jews convert.

Finally, if you take on this book, prepare to take a month on it. I have read easier Calculus books. Still, this book is worth your effort. After reading this book, you will not need anyone else's commentary for the Book of Romans.
