Edwin Hamilton Gifford’s Commentary on Romans

Colosseum, Rome

Edwin Hamilton Gifford’s Commentary on Romans was original published as part of the Speaker’s Commentary series in 1881, but reprinted (with considerably higher production values) five years later by John Murray. Recent reviewers have noted that this is one of the better older commentaries on Romans. My thanks to Book Aid for making a copy of this public domain work available for digitisation.
