Reviews - What do customers think about Romans (Interpretation, a Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching)?
Simply one of the best Jan 14, 2000
Achtemeier's commentary on Romans is simply the best commentary on the market for the layperson. Commentaries written by academics are often not useful to the general public, since they use Greek or Hebrew and assume a great deal about the reader's background. On the other hand, most of the popular commentaries are simply too shallow. Achtemeier does an excellent job of clarifying the issues for the average reader. If you can only buy one commmentary on Romans, this should be your choice.

I would like to buy one this book of Moo, Douglas, the Epitles to the Romans. Grand Rapids: Eardmans, 1996. 1012pp.
A very readable commentary. Jul 8, 1999
I really enjoyed this commentary. This was my first experience with the Interpreation commentaries and I was impressed. Dr. Achtemeier did an excellent job of writing for the lay person as well as the full-time minister. It was very readable, which is, unfortunately, kind of rare in Bible commentaries.
