    The Apostle Paul wrote in an obtuse style that has baffled theologians for centuries. One issue has been his economy of words. As best they can, scholars have interpreted his works consistent with their doctrinal theme, but to my mind, have needed to perform linguistic contortions to squeeze passages into doctrine, rather than seek interpretations more consistent with observed reality. Resulting has been an incoherent and in places, a contradictory message of the process of salvation. It is into this space that Jonathan Williams has ventured. Describing this doctrinal incoherence as a "Contradictory Reality", he asks the obvious questions: How can we be "dead to sin" yet still sin as much as we do? Why are we exhorted to not let sin reign in our bodies if the Messiah conquered sin? How is it that we put on the new man but the old man is so obviously still present?

    Re-examining Scripture with fresh eyes, the author has sought meanings that demystify some of Paul's more ambiguous statements in Romans 6, and has done a masterful job in demonstrating how his new interpretations better fit what we know to be true. I have long been frustrated by commentaries that resort to "Christian-speak" to get past passages without really addressing them. Reading this exposition by Jonathan Williams, I have been moved to loudly sigh: "At last!" I look forward to further work from this author. He has demonstrated both courage and humility in seeking to challenge traditional interpretations, and to offer alternate explanations that are not only more consistent with the message of the Messiah, but do a far better job of clarifying the writings of the Apostle Paul.

    With all my heart I pray that his message is widely spread, encouraging others to put aside the strictures of traditional doctrine and tackle those passages that they know in their hearts, simply make no sense as currently taught. Jonathan Williams has blazed a new trail with intellectual integrity. The title of his book, "Dead Men Rising", expresses his understanding of Paul's message in Romans. In it I see another message: dead theology rising to be examined with fresh eyes and purpose. This is a wonderful book: enlightening and encouraging, relevant and accurate, offering insights that can be applied to the exegesis of other passages. Please take time to study this work - you will be rewarded and enriched.
