The author presents us with a detailed, comprehensive, yet readable account of Paul's Letter to the Romans. He seeks to show how Paul's contemporaries would have perceived his work as literature. What kind of literature was Paul writing, and why? At the same time, the author does not shy away form the profound theoolgical questions raised by the text. Indeed, he regards them as inseparable from the literary.
Bryan approaches St. Paul's letter to the Romans with a number of aims in view. First, he wants to show which literary type or genre would have been seen by Paul's contemporaries as being exemplified in the letter. He also attempts to determine what we can surmise of Paul's attitude and approach to the Jewish bible. The study involves discussion of and comparison with other literature from Paul's time, place and milieu --- including other writings attributed to Paul.
