Romans has been described as the theological epistle par excellence. The apostle Paul emphasizes that salvation is by God's grace alone and that freedom, hope, and the gift of righteousness are secured through Christ's death and resurrection, with the promise of a new and glorious destiny. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, believers can discern and do the will of God.

God's purpose is to bring Jews and Gentiles together so that they may glorify him with one voice. In this Tyndale Commentary, David Garland offers clear guidance along the rewarding, though sometimes difficult, paths of this great letter.

The Tyndale Commentaries are designed to help the reader of the Bible understand what the text says and what it means. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting, and purpose. Following a structural Analysis, the Commentary takes the book section by section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties.

In the new New Testament volumes, the commentary on each section of the text is structured under three headings: Context, Comment, and Theology. The goal is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.
