Item Description...
Overview
While widely acknowledged as the single most influential document in Christian history, Paul's Letter to the Romans has also attracted the most comment. Standing at the head of Paul's writings in the New Testament and so eloquently delivering his Gospel, Romans has presented Paul to generations of readers: from Augustine in the fifth century, through the Reformation era, down to the present day. This commentary adopts a literary-rhetorical approach, viewing the letter as an instrument of persuasion designed to transform readers through a celebratory presentation of the Gospel. Reflecting upon the fate of Jews and Gentiles, Paul wins his audience to a vision of a God who always acts inclusively. The God who, in the person of Israel's Messiah (Jesus), has acted faithfully to include the Gentile peoples within the community of salvation, will not fail to see to the eventual inclusion of Israel as well. In the victory of grace displayed already in the risen humanity of Jesus, the original design of the Creator for human communities and for the world begins to come true. The interpretation of Paul's letter to Rome has accompanied and stimulated the path of Christian theology down to today. Romans touches upon virtually all main issues of Christian theology as well as presenting a rewarding introduction to Paul. Byrne facilitates full access to Paul and his Gospel through the letter, allowing Christians today to hear Paul's voice as intelligibly and powerfully as it has spoken to past generations. Includes an updated bibliography and appendix.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Very good book on the theological issues of Romans  Apr 20, 2002
I have been looking for a "scholarly" Catholic commentary of the Bible for awhile. Navarre is limited in complex ideas, such as the justification question presented in Romans, and Collegeville is not detailed enough. Other commentaries, of course, come with a decidedly Protestant interpretation, watering down several key verses. With the Sacra Pagina Romans book, however, I have found an outstanding book. It details the many key words necessary to explore Romans, such as Paul's use of justification, salvation, and the righteousness of God. These terms are key (and what separates Catholic from Protestants, to a large degree, on faith/works, justification, etc.) to understanding Paul. The theological depths of the book is just what I was looking for. While Catholic, there is not a "Catholic apologetic" tone. The facts are laid out in a very user-friendly way. I am still debating whether to continue purchasing books of the Sacra Pagina series, as I didn't much care for the Matthew book. But the Romans book is an outstanding scholarly approach that details many lines of theological thought that ALL Christians will find useful. A well done book.
 
Excellent commentary on Paul and related contemporary issues  Apr 24, 2001
This is a truly outstanding book by one of the more profound thinkers on Pauline theology working today. The format of the book is extremely helpful as well--clear, logically laid out, and the relationship between text and commentary is robust and very useful for both the casual browser and the scholar seeking to elucidate a particular passage.

One of the most interesting features of this commentary are the author's thoughts on one of the thorniest, but potentially most exciting issues in Christian theology today--the relationship between early Christianity and Judaism. There is much misunderstanding and sorrow associated with this subject, and there have been extremely exciting and potentially healing advances made in the scholarship in this area over the last twenty years or so.

This book can serve as an introduction to, or a companion to, the books of Krister Stendhal, W.D. Davies (including the Cambridge History of Judaism which he edited), E.P. Sanders, and others from the Christian side, as well as the works of Segal, Mark Nanos and Daniel Boyarin from the Jewish side. Paul's central role in the relationship between Judaism and Christianity--much misunderstood--is well worth revisiting, and has implications for the spiritual life and personal conduct of any reader today.

This is a humane, stimulating and apposite work. Highly recommended!
