Charles Cranfield (1915-2015)

I just heard via the BNTC FB page the sad news that Charles E. B. Cranfield passed away.

Cranfield will be best remembered for his two volume ICC commentary on Romans published in 1975-79. While some of you young whipper-snappers might not remember, once upon a time the only substantial Romans commentaries around in English were by Dodd, Barrett, Lenski, Kasemann, Bruce, and Cranfield. If you did Greek exegesis courses on Romans between 1975-1995, then odds are that your go to book was Cranfield.
