From the Back Cover
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.

I've not seen this approach so clearly followed before and I really like it. I personally was looking for a good exegetical commentary that wouldn't have so much of the original languages that it would go over my head and this commentary achieves that. I was less interested in the bridging contexts and applications sections (I typically like to avoid commentaries for the application part), but these portions have proven to be suprisingly helpful.
The author's style is very engaging and he doesn't belabor points. He's apparently written a much longer and in depth Romans commentary and I feel he's done a great job giving me the key highlights without forcing me to wade through pages and pages of explaination that I would likely not understand or (being married with 3 kids) have time for.
I would highly recommend this to any layman who is teaching Romans but has no formal bible or original language training (it would be great for personal study too).
Moo provides the critical exegesis material on Romans in this volume. He analyzes the Greek words when helpful, he offers differing views of other commentators and shares his own opinions when there are opposing views. He often compares his analysis with other commentaries and offers a full study of the Scripture. Moo is also not shy about sharing personal stories or offering examples from everyday life to help illustrate his points.
The organization of the commentary is helpful to Bible Study or application. Although scholars may prefer Moo's longer commentary, I think pastors, lay ministers and interested readers will be fully satisfied with Moo's treatment of Romans in this book. I would recommend it for any level of reader.
