The New Covenant (Hebrew

The New Covenant (Hebrew. רית חדשה berit hadashah ; Greek διαθήκη καινή diatheke kaine) is a biblical interpretation originally derived from a phrase in the Book of Jeremiah (Jeremiah 31:31-34), in the Hebrew Bible (or Old Testament in Christian Bible). It is often thought of as an eschatological (ultimate destiny of humanity) Messianic Age or world to come and is related to the biblical concept of the Kingdom of God.

Keener examines each paragraph for its function in the letter as a whole, helping the reader follow Paul's argument.

Craig Keener: Romans (NCCS).

This collection unwraps each selected New Testament book section-by-section, providing a clear view of the theology and application within. Focusing on both the text and various contexts of each book, this collection illustrates the impact they had on faith and tradition at the time of their composition-and the significance they continue to have in contemporary life, faith, and ministry.

A helpfully concise commentary on Paul's letter to the early Christians in Rome, which the Apostle wrote just a few years before the outbreak of Nero's persecution. Keener examines each paragraph for its function in the letter as a whole, helping the reader follow Paul's argument. Where relevant, he draws on his vast work in ancient Jewish and Greco-Roman sources in order to help modern readers understand the message of Romans according to the way the first audience would have heard it. Throughout, Keener focuses on major points that are especially critical for the contemporary study of Paul's most influential and complex New Testament letter.

This commentary is very easy to understand even for a layman like me. And I like the fact that the commentary is not according to verse by verse but by chunks of Scriptures. It allows me to follow the flow and arguments of Paul's thought better. And the background understanding of it is also very helpful. I like it a lot.

wonderful insights to help you get to the real meaning of each passage. Lots of background cultural info and historical info.

Provided lot and lot of historical and culture info that help to understand why things happened. Will re-read this commentary at least one more time.
Don't leave it on your bookshelf to collect dusk. This commentary is pretty thin. Read it, absorb it, and then may be put it on the bookshelf for reference purpose.
Goltizuru
The book is a good blend of skillful exegesis and pastoral theology.

Everything Keener writes is worth reading.

This is a useful commentary when studding individual verses. However to read it in its entirety is not ideal as there is no easy way to cross reference what the author is discussing without an open bible.

At 193 pages, excluding the bibliography and appendices, Romans in the New Covenant Commentary series is indeed concise. Do not let its brevity deceive you, dear reader. This book is excellent.

Craig Keener has done an amazing job of bringing out the main point of each pericope in the book of Romans. That was the purpose of the commentary, to give the big picture. Amazingly enough, while showing the big picture, Keener still brings out many details.

Should the apparent (though not real) paucity of material disturb the reader, Keener extensively annotates and references other scholarly works. He also gives an extensive bibliography. In fact, the book is worth its cost just for the notes and bibliography.

The strong point of this commentary is that it addresses the big picture of Romans while doing so, not in a simplistic way; but in a simple way. There is depth to this book, yet it is a profound simplicity. That is a good thing, because the book is good for scholars, academics, pastors, and the so-called average reader. It is accessible to all.

The one negative that I must mention is the binding. For a book that will be used as a reference and will be on someone's desk, the binding is very poor. The printer seemed to have tried to economize on the glue that is used at the spine. Because of this the pages easily pull loose and come out. I hope that this was an anomaly that is unique to my copy.

Other than the issue with the binding, I highly recommend this commentary.
