Moo (NICNT) - wonderful!
Andrew, and others, what are your thoughts on Moo's book "Encountering the Book of Romans"?  It is available at a price somewhat below the $1,200 price for NCINT.  Is it worth it though?

           Aware of this but haven't read it - the other option is Moo in NIVAC (Zondervan) though not yet available in Logos

I agree with you Andrew.  Although, Worthington has some interesting things to say.  Also, Gordon Fee's God's Empowering Presence is helpful when studying Romans but I don't think it's available in Logos.

For me, the best commentaries on Romans are (in no particular order): (1) Cranfield, (2) Stott (3) John Murray's NICNT (replaced now by Moo)

Joe,

I haven't read a Moo commentary that wasn't good.  LOVE his stuff on James.

I have the other two titles (not by Moo) in the Baker Encountering the Bible Collection   http://www.logos.com/products/details/4476

Encountering the Old Testament: A Christian Survey
Encountering the New Testament: A Historical and Theological Survey

I use these two surveys as texts for my homeschooled kids but I do not have the Romans volume. If it is similar in depth I would describe it as introductory and not likely to suffice.  I imagine the NICNT volume by Moo is more of what you're looking for.

Joe Miller:

I am getting ready to preach through the book of Romans.  What is the best commentary on Romans Logos has to offer and what makes it the most valuable to you?

In my opinion, the best commentaries on Romans that are available from Logos is Volume 1 and 2 of the MacArthur NT Commentary on the Book of Romans. Easy to understand, yet detailed enough to provide a comprehensive preaching overview for your congregation.  What makes MacArthur's commentaries my choice is that they're not only for the serious seminary student, or working preacher, but also for the lay person.   And they're affordable!  $$$

Regards, and God Bless.  

Charles

FWIW, bestcommentaries.com gives Moo's The Epistle to the Romans NICNT (Eerdmans, 1996) one of the highest scores of any commentary:

I'm going to reply simply to raise up some other possibilities:

Romans by Robert Jewett in the Hermeneia commentary.

Romans by C. K. Barrett in the Black's commentary.

Paul Achtemeier's commentary in the Interpretation series.

Ben Witherington's commentary in the Socio-Rhtetorical series.

Luke Timothy Johnson also has a commentary called Reading Romans, a literary and theological commentary.

It's not free, but if you want/need Tom Constable's notes in Libronix format, they are available from several sources. I think Galaxie is actually the publisher, but you can buy it online here if I recall.

ICC on Romans is $90 for volume 1. That is $180 for all of Romans.

Pillar is $40 for one Volume on all of Romans.  
Which is the best value?

Also...

Barnhouse is $94 for 4 volumes.  How does that compare to ICC and Pillar in value?

Joe

Barnhouse is a sermon series while the other two are commentaries. Other than that, I cannot make the comparison, although I believe that the ICC is more highly respected among scholars. Since you are seeking resources for sermon research, the Pillar might be a better investment. I have Barnhouse, but I have not read much in them. He preached those sermons over a three year span, so there must be either a lot of meat or several thousand rabbit trails (I hope that is not a strictly southern metaphor).

I would think it would depend on whether or not you think ICC or Pillar is the better commentary.

Joe Miller:
A few folks mentioned Boice. I only see his commentary in the set. Does Logos sell just the Romans part separately? I don't see it, but just wondered if I am missing it.

Logos only have it in the complete set, which I own in the printed version.
