Books and commentaries on the writings of the New Testament abound. But where can a student find a short, up-to-date volume, concise yet comprehensive, on the New Testament text he or she is studying? More important, where can a student find such a volume at an afforable price? New Testament Guides have been designed to meet these and other student needs: introduction to the contents of the particular biblical book balanced survey of the important critical issues attention to literary, historical, sociological and theological perspectives suggestions about critical appropriation of the text by the contemporary reader reference to other standard works through annotated bibliographies
Anyone who tries to read through Paul's epistle to the Romans soon discovers it is a dense and difficult text. Some of the difficulties are concealed by modern translations, yet even those translations are likely to baffle the average reader with unfamiliar terms-or to mislead the well-informed reader with terms that are over-familiar through the Christian doctrinal tradition. Morgan provides a guide to Romans, to help modern readers understand what Paul intended his audience to understand. The religious language of the epistle, its use of scripture and tradition, and its impact are all clearly discussed, with the needs of students in mind.
