Over the course of the next 25 weeks or so, I will be writing a rough commentary on Paul’s letter to the church in Rome. It will not be all encompassing and in fact there are much better resources on the subject than what I will produce. I will cite (albeit poorly) what sources I use. Each week I will read the thoughts from each of the following commentaries: New Beacon Bible Commentary: Romans, William M. Greathouse; Paul For Everyone: Romans, NT Wright; The Daily Study Bible: Romans, William Barclay; Romans: CEB Cranfield; New International Bible Commentary: Romans, James R. Edwards; The Expositor’s Bible Commentary: Volume 10: Romans Everett F. Harrison and Frank E. Gaebelein. and maybe a few others on ocassion. I will cite by author and page…this is not an academic document so I feel no guilt in my citations!
I am writing this as much as a good exercise for me as it is a tool for those who are stuck listening to me on Sunday morning! Feel free to write comments on this blog and I will respond as able. If this helps anyone or even me, then great!
