Product Description

Klaus Haacker, a respected expert on Paul’s writings, presents a compelling introduction to the theology of the Letter to the Romans. This volume completes Cambridge’s successful New Testament Theology series. In keeping with the series, it explores the distinctive ideas and issues of the Epistle at greater length than is possible in commentaries or theological dictionaries. Professor Haacker focuses on themes such as righteousness, suffering and hope and the mystery of Israel in the age of the gospel. Engaging with Paul’s rhetoric strategy, he shows how both ancient Rome and the spiritual heritage of Israel provide contexts for the Letter and help us to understand its message to the original readers and its abiding impact on Christianity. The book will be of interest to teachers, pastors, and students of theology and the New Testament.
Features:
  • Emphasises the biographical basis of Paul’s theology and the place of this Letter in his missionary career
  • Focuses on Paul’s creative reinterpretation of the heritage of Israel (the Law and the promises)
  • Examines the rhetoric of Romans, especially Paul’s attempt to contextualize the gospel for the cultural climate of ancient Rome
