TOM Wright’s Paul For Everyone series now includes two volumes covering the Letter to the Romans (Part 1 on chapters 1-8; Part 2 on 9-16). A renowned biblical scholar, Wright can make his material accessible to the non-specialist, as he does effectively in this series (SPCK, £8.99 ( £8.10) each; Part 1, 0-281-05312-X; Part 2, 0-281-05706-0).

Edwin Freed has written an introduction to The Apostle Paul and His Letters. He discusses the circumstances that led to the writing of each letter, and homes in on Paul’s moral teaching (Equinox, £15.99; 1-84553-003-9).

Thomas Tobin reinterprets an epistle in Paul’s Rhetoric in its Contexts: The argument of Romans. It is not a commentary, says the author: it looks, rather, at how and why Paul wrote as he did (Hendrickson, £14.99 (£13.50 ); 1-56563-946-4).
