KIRKUS REVIEW

One of the Swedish Expository series, which has already produced Anders Nygren's Commentary on Romans, this book by another professor of the University of Lund adds a significant contribution to the growing library of Pauline theology. It sets forth clearly Paul's thinking in the complex areas of freedom, law and faith which have as much relevance to the lives of men today as in Paul's day. Dr. Bring, as he expounds the epistle, shows that it falls into two major parts, the first dealing with the Christian religion and the second with Christian ethics. The relation of the Law and the Gospel is studied, showing ow the Christian who is free from the bonds of slavery to the law is freed to do the works of righteousness. The author writes clearly, and avoids too much concern with the technical problems of literary and historical exegesis, none of which seriously affects the heart of the Pauline message. This exposition does, however, proceed by chapter and verse in the tian order, and adult Bible students will find this new commentary a most stimulating and helpful, companion in their studies.
