Dr Holland takes the reader deeper into the world of the Roman Church and the culture into which Paul wrote this magnificent epistle. Others have sought to do this without an appreciation for or a confessional commitment to the inerrancy and the infallibility of Romans being the very Word of God. Tom Holland’s work stands out in that he believes that. The material, thus, comes forward as both scholarly and confessional. I commended this well researched and well written book to the Church and believe that the reader will benefit from it as I have in my own reading. I trust and pray that the material will find a wide audience, for it is indeed most deserving of such attention. And it now takes its rightful place in that considerable library section on Romans, but stands out through both confession of true faith and courageous scholarship. Congratulations to Dr Tom Holland and the publisher for this valuable and timely contribution to studies on Romans.

Tom Holland’s study demonstrates how a deeper understanding of the Old Testament and particularly of its prophesied new exodus can illumine Paul’s theology of the person and work of Christ in profound ways. Here one will find scholarship that is not only solid and faithful, thorough and yet accessible – in short, scholarship in the service of the church.

Tom’s commentary invites readers to break away from fixed ideas and journey to new places. It is informed, scholarly, rich in exegetical insights, yet easy to understand. Tom argues for a reading of Romans that is tied to the Old Testament Scriptures, rooted in Isaiah, is Christ centred and communally focused. I highly recommend it for pilgrims seeking to know God more.
