In the wake of his widely appreciated commentaries on the Gospel of Matthew and the Gospel of John, noted theologian and exegete Frederick Dale Bruner turns his attention to Pauls letter to the Romans. In this concise commentary, he relays his findings on what he calls the "Fifth Gospel" and its central claim that "through the Fathers love, Jesuss passion, and the Spirits application of this passionate love, human beings can have a perfectly right relationship with God--by simple faith in His Christ."

As he did in his commentaries on Matthew and John, Bruner engages historical interpreters from the patristic period to the present--including Augustine, Chrysostom, Aquinas, Luther, and Calvin--while also offering his own lucid translation of the text and relevant pastoral applications. The result is a holistic understanding of the book of Romans informed not only by one scholars lifetime of ministry, teaching, and learning, but also by the full depth and breadth of church tradition.
