Saint Paul’s Epistle to the Romans: A Pastoral Commentary

The Most Reverend Dmitri, Archbishop of Dallas and the South

Saint Paul’s Epistle to the Romans: A Pastoral Commentary is the second complete commentary on a book of the New Testament offered by His Eminence Archbishop DMITRI of Dallas and the South (OCA). His previous commentary, on the Epistle to the Hebrews, was preceded by several other New Testament studies based on selected themes from the canonical gospels and reflective of the usage of the gospels in the liturgical lectionary and sacramental rites of the Orthodox Church. The present work is similar to the volume on Hebrews in its coverage, verse-by-verse, of an epistle of the Apostle Paul. Its exegesis of the text, however, is considerably more extensive, and its methodology involves much more detail. [...T]he careful research and study involved in the composition of this Pastoral Commentary make it a reference for many purposes. Clergy may use it extensively in teaching and in preparing homilies (the Epistle to the Romans is the first of the Pauline Epistles read liturgically in the Orthodox Church after completion of the Acts of the Holy Apostles during the Paschal season). It may be used for spiritual guidance and edification. It may provide clarifications to those involved in secular and religious dialogues, where certain ungrounded assumptions are often made and serve to stall serious discussions. Permeating every page of the Pastoral Commentary, however, is the fact that it is the work of an Orthodox bishop, a person of apostolic rank who for many years has lived his life, as the Orthodox prayers of consecration to the episcopate say, ‘under the yoke of the Gospel.’ It is written in a style reflective of a lifetime of reading the Holy Scriptures and the Church Fathers who comment on them, as well as of extensive participation in that ‘great school’ of the Church: Orthodox liturgical worship.”
