Free Doug Moo Course On Romans

I’m excited to announce that the always impressive Biblical Training site has added a course by Dr. Doug Moo of Wheaton College on the book of Romans. The course was recorded during a D.Min graduate seminar at Carolina Graduate School of Divinity, just recently, in May 2012. Click here for the course. Especially noteworthy for this blog will be the fact that Dr. Moo is anti-new perspective on Paul, is complementarian on gender issues, and is one of the best New Testament exegetes that the Reformed world has to offer. (So, his stuff on Romans 8 and 9 will be helpful for the Molinism debates that we’ve been having). Plus, even a formidable critic of Moo like N.T. Wright, has nothing but praise for the man:

Moo is in a different category again. Doug Moo, I would say, is a much greater Pauline scholar than either of the two I just mentioned [D. A. Carson and John Piper]. One of the things I really respect about Doug Moo is that he is constantly grappling with the text. Where he hears the text saying something which is not what his tradition would have said, he will go with the text. I won’t always agree with his exegesis, but there is a relentless scholarly honesty about him which I really tip my hat off to.
