Item description for Commentary-Romans (NIV App Comm) by Douglas J. Moo...
Overview This book, part of the NIV Application Commentary Series, helps readers learn how the message of Romans can have the same powerful impact today that it did when it was first written.
Publishers Description 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Commentary-Romans (NIV App Comm)?
I Love This Book! Mar 15, 2007
This is a must have for anyone who is studying Romans or anybody just interested in Paul's journey. I highly recommend this book to everyone!
A Fine Mid-level Commentary on Romans Sep 10, 2006
To me, this is a very fine commentary for personal Bible study. The sections on analysis of the text are brief compared to Moo's major commentary, of course, but are pithy, to the point, and display the interpretive accuracy that Dr. Moo is deservedly known for. He is particularly strong in explaining the flow of the letter. The bridging and application sections are useful in general. They often encouraged me in my own study of Romans to reflect on important issues that I would not have come up with on my own. In my own study, using Moo's major commentary for exegesis in tandem with this one for the applications, was for me the best of both worlds.
Great for the Basics Feb 23, 2006
NIVAC is a great series for those looking for a commentary with a very pastoral approach, or one that doesn't get too technical. Anyone doing any serious study need look elsewhere, however. For example, Moo's own NIC on Romans is almost 3 times as thick as that of his NIVAC. Then again, if you don't want to mess with Greek, this may be exactly what you're looking for.
On Moo in general, his commentary is good, but you might want to check out Schreiner's instead.
Great Resource for Preachers! Jul 28, 2004
While this commentary is not as in-depth as Moo's NICNT commentary on Romans, it is still of great value to those who preach and/or teach the Bible. Why? Because of the contemporary application. For instance, Moo's comments on Romans 8 should be read by every evangelical Christian everywhere. Not only does he cover the Greek text adequately and succintly but he also makes the obvious connection between the ultimate redemption of the created universe and the need for real Christian ecology, which is often completely missed. Douglas Moo is a great commentator and this volume (as well as most of the NIV Application Commentaries) is must have!
Depends on what you are looking for... Oct 24, 2003
I agree that Moo's other commentary is a lot more indepth and a lot better, but for a Bible study of Romans this is the perfect commentary. It's half the price and it doesn't include all of the technical info that is important for a serious study, but not necessary for a basic Bible study. The key word is "Application" - this is a great guide that gives some background and good application to Paul's letter to the Romans, without getting too indepth. If you are looking for a guide to help you understand Romans and apply it to your life, I'd highly recommend this one. If you are a theological student studying Romans more indepth - go with Moo's bigger commentary.
