In Thomas Aquinas on the Jews: Insights into his Commentary on Romans 9-11, Dominican theologian Steven Boguslawski, maintains that Aquinas, in Romans 9-11 uses the concepts of predestination and election to not only set forth a positive theology of the Jews, but to correct and develop the inherited tradition he received. Moreover Boguslawski integrates his study of Aquinas' treatment of Romans 9-11 with the appropriate areas in the Summa Theologica demonstrating Thomas contribution not only from his Romans commentary, but also in his most influential theological work. Boguslawski is preparing the first English translation ever of Thomas Aquinas' Commentary on Romans, and as such is a unique authority on Aquinas' thought in this regard. His translation promises to fill a much needed gap in biblical commentary, and provide fresh insight to this highly controversial text.
The author maintains that Thomas Aquinas in his Commentary on Romans uses predestination and election as hermeneutical keys to understand Romans 9-11 and to sustain a positive theological view of the Jewish people.
