Cambridge Greek Testament for Schools – Romans by R. St. John Parry

Reginald St. John Parry [1858-1935], The Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Romans

The Cambridge Greek Testament for Schools is an old series written by a team of scholars who has a superb grasp of Greek. I am pleased therefore to find that most of the missing volumes in the set are to be found in the Library at Spurgeon’s College. Here is Reginald St. John Parry’s work on Romans. This title is in the public domain.

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.

Frederic Godet’s Commentary on Romans

Frédéric Louis Godet [1812-1900], Commentary on St. Paul's Epistle to the Romans, 2 Vols

Frederic Godet’s 2-volume commentary on Romans is written from an Arminian perspective and is still considered useful. My thanks to Book Aid for making this public domain set available for digitisation.
