Volume 1 of Joe Holder’s exposition of Romans covers Romans chapters 1 through 8. With the kind of precise and pertinent analyses readers have come to expect from him, Holder tackles what is arguably Paul’s most comprehensive treatment of Christian doctrine in the New Testament. The epistle to the Romans is, indeed, a “theological masterpiece.” Against the dark background of man’s tragic sinfulness, it paints the brilliant scene of God’s gracious gift of righteousness through the Lord Jesus Christ. Then, it calls for a practical response of faith and godliness in the believer’s daily walk of discipleship.
