Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent, wish he'd included more...  Dec 15, 2007
This review will examine three 19th-Century authors who comment directly on the Greek text of the Letter to the Romans.

Charles Hodge was a professor at Princeton Theological Seminary, and also authored exegetical commentaries on Ephesians and 1/2 Corinthians. His commentary on Romans is deservedly a standard. His interpretations are solid and well defended, and will resonate with Reformed readers who frequently share his theological views because Hodge was also the author of a standard three-volume systematic theology. Yet while he relates comments to a theological framework, Hodge does not interpret the Scriptures through the lens of Reformed theology, but always examines the passage in context. Hodge also includes comments for application, making this an extremely well-rounded work. He also provides enough translation for those without Greek to make do - don't bother with the edited Crossway version! This is my first pick for Romans, despite its age.

Shedd is the author of _Dogmatic Theology_, one of the finest systematic theologies available, and opines that Romans is a divine system of theology, a mini-systematic if you will. It is no wonder that he and Hodge were both drawn to write commentaries on Romans. Shedd's commentary is somewhat terse. His insights are profound, but he does not always go through the exegetical process showing why other views are discarded. It is nice to have the entire Greek text at the top of the page for easy reference. The major drawback is that he aims the work entirely at seminary-trained pastors and theological students, so it is inaccessible to those without Greek education. He approaches the critical passages from the standpoint of 5-point Calvinism.

Frederic Godet was a pastor and theological professor in the Remonstrant (Arminian) movement in Switzerland. He was also the author of commentaries (also translated from the French) on Luke, John, and 1 Corinthians. This is a worthwhile commentary, but I believe, the weakest of his four. He provides very brief comments on contended soteriological passages in Romans 8 and 9, and seems in a hurry to move on. Despite this weakness, he frequently has perceptive comments worth considering. While I highly recommend his works in the gospels, this is something nice to consult for another perspective, but not something you absolutely need to purchase.

Hodge: 5 stars
Shedd: 4.5 stars
Godet: 4 stars
