The study of the epistle of Romans is essential for any Christian theology. This commentary interprets the most systematic text of the New Testament from an African perspective and suggests contextualized explanations and applications that address the needs of the church in Africa, and around the world. It is divided into preachable units, each of which ends with questions for the reader.
