Product Description

The Paideia series approaches each text in its final, canonical form, proceeding by sense units (pericope's) rather than word-by-word or verse-by-verse. Ths the commentary follows tghe original train of thought as indicated by the author and not necessarily modern artificial distinctions. On account this approach, one is able to grasp not only the exegetical-historical information of teh passage, but also will eb able to see thought in its coherent and theological expression.

Each sense unit is explored in three sections: (1) introductory matters, (2) tracing the train of thought, and (3) key hermeneutical and theological questions. The commentaries shed fresh light on the text while avoiding idiosyncratic readings and attend to theological meaning without presuming a specific theological stance in the reader.

Finally, this series is enormously helpful and practical through its usage of small visual presentations of historical, exegetical, and theological information. Highly user friendly, and a great resource for college students or those who are at the intermediate level in study of the Bible.Aimed squarely at university and seminary students, this series is eminently useful for professors and preachers. It will also be of interest to theological libraries.

About the Paideia series:Paideia Commentaries explore how New Testament texts form Christian readers by:
  • Attending to the ancient narrative and rhetorical strategies the text employs
  • Showing how the text shapes theological convictions and moral habits
  • Commenting on the final, canonical form of each New Testament book
  • Focusing on the cultural, literary, and theological settings of the text
  • Making judicious use of maps, photos, and sidebars in a reader-friendly format

Endorsements

Matera wisely distills and dispenses the massive scholarship on Romans. Students will find here an excellently organized, clear, and substantial description and discussion of this important and complex letter. Matera's personal passion for Paul's magnificent convictions in Romans energizes this fine introductory commentary."
--L. Ann Jervis,
professor of New Testament, Wycliffe College, University of Toronto

"Matera has produced a remarkable commentary that is simultaneously nuanced and accessible. He is in clear conversation with the best biblical scholarship, but there is not a pedantic word in his lucid writing; rather, this commentary is unusually engaging. Attending to the literary, historical, and theological dimensions of Romans, Matera judiciously guides his readers in a careful study of the biblical text. All who are interested in Romans will be grateful to Matera for this fine work. I recommend it with enthusiasm!"
--Marion L. Soards,
professor of New Testament studies, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary

"Frank Matera's commentary focusing on God's saving righteousness revealed in the gospel is a lucid exposition of Romans. It introduces the major interpretive options for key issues, provides careful exegesis in conversation with other interpreters, and both highlights and engages the letter's profound theological claims. It is therefore a great gift not only to students but also to seasoned interpreters of Paul."
--Michael J. Gorman,
professor of Sacred Scripture and dean of the Ecumenical Institute of Theology, St. Mary's Seminary and University, Baltimore
