It is better using the PC Kindle Reader in my 32" screen (so I can see three pages simultaneously) but yet poorer than the "real thing". Four stars as the contents is great.
Make yourself a favor and go to the printed edition. Five stars.
The average: four stars.
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.

It can be used for personal study and time with the Lord too, as it brings out aspects of application that are relevant for today.
