Hey Zach,

One of the most thorough commentaries available on Romans is Douglas Moo's The Epistle to the Romans in the NICNT series - detailed, exegetical, clear, and very helpful.

A second one I would definite recommend is Thomas Schreiner's commentary on Romans, in the BECNT series - also exceptional.

For a slightly less technical one, take a look at John Stott's The Message to the Romans in the BST series.

For the parables, see Craig Blomberg's Interpreting the Parables.

Hope that helps, let me know if you've got any follow up questions...

Peace,
Jason

For the parables I suggest Snodgrass' Stories with Intent (Eerdmans) which, unfortunately, is not available in Logos.

++ on this recommendation.

Also, depending on what kind of study you are doing, a great exegetical resource is the handbook from SIL series Semantic and Structural Analysis. Ellis Deibler did the one for Romans, which I've used when preaching through the book. It can be found here: http://www.ethnologue.com/show_product.asp?isbn=9781556710728

Consider also

Murray, John: The Epistle of Romans (old NICNT but can also be found as a stand alone book), Good for theological sensitivity.  Not available in Logos format

Cranfield, C. E. B: Romans 2 vols in ICC (available in Logos format). must consult for detailed exegesis of the text (a knowledge of Greek is required)

Osborne, Grant: Romans in IVPNT ((available in Logos format)

I have found Moo's "Encountering the Book of Romans" to be a refreshing read and a good primer during teaching preparation.

thank you everyone for your help! i went with Moo's "Encountering the Book of Romans" and Blomberg's "Interpreting the Parables" and so far I have been pleased with the layout of both although I have not really had a chance to use either much.

Thanks for this link.

I second the suggestion of "Stories with Intent" by Snodgrass, for the parables.
