- Noted for its commitment to Biblical authority
- Clear exposition of scripture
- Practical Application
Many Christians, pastors and laymen alike, consider the Apostle Paul's Epistle to the Romans the richest lode of theological truth ever written. Its themes of justification by faith, abounding grace, freedom from sin and from the old nature, living sacrifices, God's sovereignty/man's responsibility, and much else have both challenged and nourished followers of Christ for centuries.
A systematic theology, a practical presentation of the Christian life, an apologetic for the gospel of Jesus Christ—the Book of Romans is all this and more. In this helpful commentary, Pastor R. Kent Hughes brings all his talent for clear exposition, pointed application, and literary expression to bear on this power-packed Pauline letter.
Whether used as source material for sermons, adult Sunday school classes, and Bible study groups, or as a guide for individual study of the Scriptures, this volume will encourage and equip believers in their walk with God.
About the Author
R. Kent Hughes, Senior Pastor Emeritus of College Church in Wheaton, Illinois, earned his D.Min from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He has authored numerous books for Crossway, including a number of volumes in the popular Preaching the Word series. He is also the series editor.
This series will minister to a pastor's soul as well as give him an immense resource for his preaching. And it will minister to the parishioner wonderfully in personal Bible study. The reader will be filled with fresh thoughts about our Lord as well as joyful encouragement for himself. That is what happened to me in reading this.
The Preaching the Word Commentary is one of my favorites. The focus upon explaining the text with preaching it as the goal makes the series resonate with the priorities of the pulpit. No academic aloofness here, but down-to-earth, preacher meat for God's people.
The single best resource for faithful biblical exposition today. A great boon for genuine reformation!
Throughout the Christian centuries, from Chrysostom and Augustine through Luther, Calvin, and Matthew Henry, to Martyn Lloyd-Jones and Ray Stedman, working pastors have been proving themselves to be the best of all Bible expositors. Kent Hughes stands in this great tradition, and his exciting expositions uphold it worthily.
