Romans - The Gospel as it Really Is - Welwyn Commentary Series by Stuart Olyott and published by Evangelical Press.
In this book the author aims to present a simple introduction to Romans for the ordinary reader today. His exposition goes straight to the heart of the passage, avoiding technicalities. Perhaps no other part of Scripture has had as profound an influence on the history of the Christian church as this letter. Luther said of Romans: ‘It can never be read or considered too much or too well, and the more it is handled, the more delightful it becomes and the better it tastes.’
This epistle is not a document intended only for the eyes of seminary students or academics. It is not a treatise for theological experts. It is not a piece of specialized intruction for church officers, or a written lecture for preachers and pastors. It is a letter. And it is to ordinary people. Romans sets before us the gospel which the ordinary believer in the New Testament churches loved, and lived by. It is the gospel which was believed in by the men and women, boys and girls who were saved by God's grace there in Rome.
The author says that this volume is a key, and that by using it, we will be able to get into Romans by ourselves.
'The Gospel as it really is' was the first Welwyn Commentary to be printed in 1979, and has now been revised and updated.
