Paul's Epistle to the Romans is a definitive statement of his message. Scholars and religious writers continue to turn out exegeses, critical commentaries, devotional commentaries and a seemingly endless stream of academic analyses, appraisals and reappraisals of Paul and his kerygma. Many of these are admirable. But Paul addressed his letter to ordinary people, so there's a place for an ordinary person's commentary, especially from an ordinary person who is willing to make an impartial assessment of Paul's coherence as a thinker, his method of proving his points, and the nature of the faith he bequeathed to his successors
This commentary was undertaken as preparation for reading Karl Barth's Shorter Commentary on Romans. Barth's commentary probably is not for ordinary people, and Paul likely would have found many of Barth's interpretations mystifying. Still, many of Barth's interpretations -- and misinterpretations -- shed a kind of light on Paul. So some reflections on Barth's commentary are included here.
