Drawing from the great doctrinal heritage of the Reformed faith, Dan Doriani brings clarity and unique insight to the many practical lessons on Christian living and salvation found in book of Romans.
With verse by verse commentary, Doriani examines Paul’s message to the early church in Rome in detail, providing readers with historical, cultural, and biblical context for each chapter, along with structural analysis and theological lessons. This comprehensive commentary explores the core of Pauline theology, touching on themes of righteousness, church unity, justification, and the application of faith in our daily lives.
As the newest addition to the Reformed Expository Commentary Series, this book will teach and encourage all readers and inspire pastors in their own expository preaching ministry. An experienced pastor and theological scholar, Doriani includes personal and corporate applications that are helpful for church teachers, students, and professors alike.

“Theologically rich, exegetically faithful, and pastorally applicable. Doriani’s excellent exegesis is sprinkled with stories that powerfully illustrate the truths presented. The world and the church desperately need to hear afresh the gospel of God in Jesus Christ, and Doriani presents it beautifully in all its richness and power.”

“Fresh in outlook, wise in counsel, and rich in illustration. . . . Doriani’s exposition channels Paul’s own zeal for God’s righteousness and the gospel’s potency. Among numerous recent Romans commentaries, this one stands out for its combining of scholarly rigor with pastoral experience and personal warmth.”
