Abstract:Introduction discusses Acts in the New Testament, origin and purpose, and Paul in Acts. Conservative position on sources, role of Luke. Author's translation serves as running text.

Title:Romans
Place:Leicester, England; Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Inter-Varsity Press; Eerdmans
Pages:274 p.
Abstract:Introduction discusses occasion of letter, Christianity at Rome, Romans and the Pauline corpus, text, Romans and the Pauline gospel, "flesh" and "spirit," and "law," in Romans, and the influence of Romans. "Argument" is a telescoped recasting of the letter into modern English to show the logic. No running text, but follows RSV. Discusses and/or paraphrases each pericope, then comments on selected verses; misses many details but useful for showing general logical progression of a complex text. Greek often used but explained.

Publisher:Eerdmans
Pages:lxiv, 447 p.; revised edition, xxii, 426 p.
Abstract:Introduction covers the people addressed, destination, authorship, date, canonicity, relation to Old Testament, relation to the gospel, and outline. Originally based on ASV running text, revised edition based on author's ad hoc translation. Gives emphasis to theological significance, structure, logic. Details are sometimes difficult to retrieve, are sometimes in textual footnotes, or are in some cases not covered. Greek used heavily in footnotes. A valuable tool for one equipped to use it.
