Any of you clever people have any feedback to offer me on Wilckens', Der Brief an die Römer? They are selling a one volume version here in Germany at the mo, and wondered about getting it.

Thanks, Jim. Will try get it Saturday
It is in the reading list in - Douglas J. moo " The Epistle to the Romans - he highlights this commentary by saying - "I selected twelve commentators for particular careful study. Three factors informed my selection: exegetical excellence, theological sophisticationand represnentative significance. These commentaries may be called - to borrow a phrase from textual criticism - the "constant witnesses" in my commentary, and they are prceded in the list that follows with an asterisk. I regard these scholars as my exegetical " sparring partners," and I refer the reader to them constantly. I am looking for an English translation ! Eric / UK

I am New Testament Tutor at St Mellitus College and St Paul's Theological Centre, London. I'm also a Visiting Lecturer at King's College London. Less well known is that I am also the original writer of the now famous song “Beans, beans, good for your heart…”, and inventor of the “you must have fallen out of the stupid/ugly tree” repertoire of insults. I am the main proponent of the Human Faecal Matter for Brains Opening in chess (actually not what I wanted to call my brilliant and original opening Knight manoeuvre 1.Na3, 2.Nc1), and I also claim to have independently discovered the haiku™ poetry form (© Copyright Chris Tilling 2007) without any help from the Japs. My blog, Chrisendom, is primarily occupied with biblical and theological themes – especially those Apostle Paul shaped, but I try as best as I can to squeeze in a decent amount of inappropriate baloney on the way.
