Item Description...
If the God of Israel has acted to save his people through Christ, but Israel is not participating in that salvation, how then can this God be considered righteous? Unlocking Romans is an intriguing study of Paul's letter that is directed in large extent toward answering this question in order to illuminate the righteousness of God the book of Romans reveals. J. R. Daniel Kirk explains that this God is best understood not in abstractions, but in the particularity of Israel's story. This story contextualizes the identity of God and the quality of God's righteousness. The answer here, Kirk claims, comes mainly in terms of resurrection. Even if only the most obvious references in Romans are considered - and Kirk certainly delves more deeply than the obvious - the theme of resurrection still appears not only in every section of the letter, but also at climactic moments of Paul's argument. The network of connections among Jesus' resurrection, Israel's Scriptures, and redefining the people of God, serves to affirm God's fidelity to Israel. This, in turn, demonstrates Paul's gospel message to be a witness to the revelation of the righteousness of God. Unlocking Romans is a clear and inviting theological study of what many consider the Bible's most theological book.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Viewing Romans from the empty tomb  Jan 27, 2009
Unlocking Romans shifts from the standard theme of righteousness and views it through the lens of resurrection...Christ's, and humankind's. Resurrection becomes the leitmotiv of Romans. In answering the question of how far the fatherhood of Abraham may extend, "The resurrection functions as Paul's hermeneutical key for reinterpreting the identity of the people of God" (83). Although Professor Kirk travels through the epistle, this is not a commentary but a critical analysis and a fresh perspective. Romans also serves as Paul's "theodicy project" in which God is vindicated as faithful to His promises to Israel. A must-read for those wishing to understand Paul and (what many consider) his most important epistle.
