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.

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.
I dislike the ebook version though. As the previous review said, there is no way to jump to the commentary for Romans 11 for example. I think this is the major flaw for reading on the kindle as kindle is designed to be read from beginning to the end. But for a bible study where you need to flip through different sections of the book... it is very difficult. I have an ipad though so i can just do a search for the chapter I want to study but even that is cumbersome. I suggest a linked Table of Contents would make this 10x better on the Kindle.
completely miss some crucial points in true grace theology. Moo joins a large segment of modern
evangelical Reformed Theology in illegitimately redefining grace to include works, obedience, and
perseverence through human effort. That is no salvation by grace alone through faith alone, in Christ alone.
