Item description for Commentary-Romans (21st Century Biblical Series) by Woodrow Michael Kroll, William Kroll & Edward E. Hindson...
Overview The book of Romans has rightly been called "the Constitution of Christianity." In this one letter are recorded the doctrines of justification, sanctification, divine condemnation, divine election, the perseverance of the saints, total depravity, the last judgment, the fall of man, the revelation of God in nature, and so much more. In his commentary, Dr. Kroll indicates that the letter to the church in Rome was Paul?s way of depositing a handbook of Christian doctrine into the capital of the Roman Empire. No other writing has more powerfully confronted the mind of man with the mind of God. The book of Romans brought St. Augustine, Martin Luther, John Wesley, and John Calvin to an understanding of man?s need for Christ?s righteousness. Every argument that man can muster against the claims of God is thoroughly demolished with unanswerable logic by the apostle Paul. Sometimes these arguments seem complex and beyond our understanding. Dr. Kroll, in the clarity and succinctness he is known for on his radio broadcasts, breaks down Paul?s arguments into clear, relevant points and helps the reader apply them to his or her own relationship with Christ. Study questions at the end of each chapter are designed to further clarify the teachings of Paul to individuals and Bible study groups.
CAN YOU HANDLE THE TRUTH?
EVERY HUMAN BEING ON EARTH IS SEEKING FOR TRUTH AND MEANING - something so incredibly profound that their life will be changed forever. This commentary by Woodrow Kroll has the answer to your search. The book of Romans removes all of our alibis, all our pretenses, all or attempts at self-justification and proves that the righteousness of Christ is our only hope of redemption.
In the summer of A.D. 386, Augustine studied the boo of Romans and found the answer to his question: How can I be righteous before a holy God? At the moment Augustine came to Christ and his writings still impact the Church today.
In November 1515, a professor of sacred theology at the University of Wittenberg, Germany, began to expound this epistle to his students. As he prepared his lectures, he became more and more convinced that "the just shall live by faith." Through the reading of this epistle, Martin Luther was born into the family of God.
In May 1738, John Wesley unwilling attended a meeting where someone was reading Luther's Preface to the Epistle to the Romans. Wesley wrote in his journal, "I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone, for my salvation; and an assurance was given me that he had taken my sin away, even mine, and saved me from the law of sin and death. " This event, more than any other, launched the evangelical revival of the eighteenth century.
John Calvin, he great Swiss reformed and theologian said of this epistle, "When anyone understands the Epistle, he has passage opened to him to the understanding of the whole Scriptures."
No book of Scriptures has played a more significant role in the history of the Church. It has led men and woman from every nation and every walk of life to evaluate their lives and trust in God's grace. Studying Romans can have the same effect on you as it has had on other readers if your heart is prepared for change.

The Book of Romans: Righteousness in Christ (Twenty-First Century Biblical Commentary) Nov 10, 2006
This is a well written book. It has discussion questiona at the end of each chapter. It would be perfect for a study group or for personal reading. I wish I had books of all the New Testament books in this form. I am 76 years old and wish I could of had this book 50 years ago. --Kenneth Whitman
Excellent commentary Dec 4, 2005
I purchased this book because I am teaching a class on Romans. It's a great resource for anyone wanting to use a great, direct commentary that is relevant for today's readers.
Woodrow Kroll is best known for his involvement with Back to the Bible. He does an excellent job of making the book of Romans approachable to the reader.
There is not an exhaustive covering of every position on the many topics in the book, which is OK. The introduction informs the reader that this series is directed at conservative, dispensational, pre-rapture, pre-tribulation believers. That narrows things down, and if you fall into that position, you'll be very comfortable reading this book.
If you want something that presents all sides, other resources are available.
All in all, I like this book, and will continue to use it as a resource. Of its many good features, I like the questions asked at the end of each section. It makes setting up a study series a little easier.
