Introducing Romans: Critical Issues in Paul’s Most Famous Letter

Richard Longenecker’s volume by Eerdmans was sent along for review (thanks Eerdmans!).  Introducing Romans

… takes a comprehensive look at the complex backdrop of Paul’s letter and carefully unpacks a number of critical issues, including:

  • Authorship, integrity, occasion, date, addressees, and purpose
  • Important recent interpretive approaches
  • Greco-Roman oral, rhetorical, and epistolary conventions
  • Jewish and Jewish Christian thematic and rhetorical features
  • The establishing of the letter’s Greek text
  • The letter’s main focus, structure, and argument

My review is here.

  1. I still have my hardback first edition of Paul Apostle of Liberty, by Richard Longenecker (Harper & Row Pub. 1964). Simply one of the best Pauline studies!
