Reviews - What do customers think about Reading Romans: A Literary and Theological Commentary (Reading the New Testament Series)?

Clear and Not Difficult for Christian  Oct 7, 2000
Reading Romans is one of the 'small book' of Luke Tomothy Johnson. It is clear and not difficult for Christian. You can use this book to prepare you Sunday School, Cell Group Discussion and self-study. If you are the teacher of Sunday School, Cell group Leader or Lay Pastor, you need to put this book in your library. Read 'Reading Romans', you can easliy understand the picture of Romans. Of course, if you want to learn more and deep, or you are studying Theology, Douglas Moo or Berndon Bryne's books will be better.
 
Useful contribution  Feb 2, 2000
Johnson in this commentary offers a sustained and well articulated "reading" of Romans; though at times he can be a little idiosyncratic in his views and labour some points endlessly. He is very good in focusing on the literary conventions of this letter, but not so good when it comes to exegetical detail. One glaring weakness that this work has is that it does not interact with alternative readings or views in a sustained or consistant way. Another shortcoming is that it contains no indexes or bibliographies! Thus, I would say that this should not be top of your list when it comes to purchasing commentaries on Romans. For roughly the same price you can get Douglas Moo's larger and more exhaustive commentary in the New International Commentary on the New Testament series, or if you are looking for a Roman Catholic perspective, Brendon Bryne's volume in the Sacra Pagina series.

Nevertheless, this volume does contain some exegetical distinctives.
