his commentary includes Acts-Galatians. The Romans commentary is written by Wright. It is exhilarating. I'm not sure I have ever used that adjective for a commentary before, but it's true. Wright is a brilliant thinker and an engaging writer. I don't agree with a fair amount of his conclusions, but what you learn along the way is invaluable. Wright is a proponent of the "New Perspective" and I think that at times his perspective on Paul is more right than the old. Often, I find him to be correct in what he affirms and incorrect in what he denies...updated link. [Full Review]

A very good commentary, however, not on the same exegetical level as Moo or Dunn in terms of engaging with wider scholarship. The reason being that Wright elaborates on his own (New Perspective) understanding of Romans. In terms of an evangelical New Perspective view on Paul, this commentary is a must.

I'm not surprised this commentary isn't higher on the list, but I am disappointed. I think it can be attributed to two things: (1.)It is a challenge to read and comprehend. (2.) Many of us prefer a commentary that agrees with and reinforces our presuppositions and prior theological commitments. Wright's commentary will stand the test of time, however. It will outlive its detractors. The great strength of his writings generally and, of course, of this commentary particularly is the skill of the exegesis which underlies all his work. His treatment of chapters 9-11 alone are worth the price of the book! Another strength of the commentary are the introductions to each section of the epistle. Wright keeps before the reader the big picture of Romans which is essential to following Paul's overarching argument and Wright's detailed exegesis of it. [Full Review]
