Product Description

In this narrative approach to one of Paul's most important Epistles, Katherine Grieb argues that Romans can best be understood as Paul's telling of a master story--about what God has done in Christ--and its implications for the life and mission of the Roman churches. Underlining the key moves in Paul's argument, Grieb explains why Paul tells the stories he does and shows how these stories are related to his larger narrative of God's righteousness. While for many Christians, the Epistle to the Romans has felt inaccessible because of its complex argument and syntax, Grieb demonstrates the letter's relevance today and invites contemporary readers to locate their own stories within Paul's account of God's righteousness. Making a solid contribution to Pauline scholarship and including questions for reflection, this book is a needed resource for New Testament study.

Publisher's Description

A. Katherine Grieb insightfully traces the argument of Paul's letter to the Romans and shows how it is grounded in the story of God's faithfulness to Israel. She draws together a number of crucial insights: the narrative character of Paul's thought, the apocalyptic message of his gospel, the depth of his engagement with Israel's Scripture, and the practical and political impact of his theology. She demonstrates the letter's relevance today and invites contemporary readers to locate their own stories within Paul's account of God's righteousness. Informed by recent Pauline scholarship, this book will be useful to scholars, students, and pastors.
