Product Description

This masterful study on Paul's epistle to the Romans is sure to rival the great commentaries written by Martin Luther and Karl Barth. Fitzmyer's treatment is thoroughly detailed as he deals with the most important issues of the early church. He uses the perspective of the Apostle Paul to examine the theological and ethical principles of Christianity, as well as to explain the struggle between Judaism and the new community of faith. This is essential reading for scholars, students, and anyone interested in learning about one of the most important letters ever written.

Publisher Description

Outside of the Gospels themselves, there is no single
Christian document whose influence has been greater than
Paul's Epistle to the Romans. Its explosive character has
changed lives ---- St. Augustine's, Martin Luther's and Karl
Barth's to name a few and precipitated revolutions.


This full scale commentary deals with the most important
issues of the early Christian church. And it is through the
eyes of the Apostle Paul, the major figures of this period,
that we see the dominant motifs and themes, the theological
essentials of the Christian faith. Who better than the once
pious Jew, converted to the Christian cause, to tell the
reader about the early struggles with Judaism, the reluctant
yet nurturing mother of this new community of faith.

This volume is aimed primarily at Christians, because the
Epistle to the Romans is part of their canon of Holy
Scripture. But it is equally valuable for all those who have
an interest in learning about on e of the most important
letters ever written by anyone, and in understanding the
world shaking movement of which it was an essential part and to which it gave powerful impetus.
