Product Description

Ben Witherington III exegetes Romans in this volume of his series of socio-rhetorical commentaries and offers fresh insights and a new translation of the Greek text of Romans. Demonstrating how post-Reformation interpretations have been too reliant upon Augustinian readings, he suggests studying the epistle in light of early Jewish theology, Rome's historical situation, and Paul's own rhetorical concerns. Each section of the commentary ends with a brief discussion titled "Bridging the Horizons," which suggests how the ancient text of Romans may speak to us today.

Ben Witherington III is professor of New Testament at Asbury Theological Seminary, Wilmore, Kentucky.

    Ben Witherington is brilliant scholar and an engaging writer, and anything he writes is worth purchasing. While the vast majority of commentaries on Romans are written from a Calvinist-Reformed perspective, this one bucks that trend, making it all the more useful even if one disagrees with the author's conclusions. Some parts of the book get bogged down with detailed rhetorical analysis and the author's interaction with scholarly literature, but for most of the time Witherington gets straight to the point so layreaders will get a lot out of what he has to share. Each chapter ends with a "Bridging the Horizons" section that focuses on how the book of Romans speaks to us today.
