Book Description

18 Sep 2013
Why would Paul write his longest letter to a church he had not founded or even visited? This expositor believes the answer lies in its history, culminating in a major crisis which could have split the whole church into two denominations. Originally Jewish (Acts 2:10-11), it soon attracted Gentiles, who were left on their own when Claudius evicted all Jews (Acts 18:2). In their absence a teaching emerged which we now know as 'Replacement Theology', believing that God has rejected the Jews and turned instead to the Christian Church as his chosen people on earth, a view which, alas, is now widespread. Paul's carefully argued answer shows how much believing Jews and Gentiles have in common, both in sin and salvation, in flesh and Spirit. This approach treats 'Chapters 9-11', (divisions never in his letter) as an integral part of his appeal, reaching its climax in a threefold challenge to the arrogance of the Gentile believers in Rome (11:18, 20, 25) in not warmly welcoming back into the fellowship the Jews who were allowed to return under Nero. This 'key' unlocks the whole epistle, from the solemn warning that believers can lose their salvation (11:20-22) to the careful instruction on how to live with 'disputable matters' such as diet and days (14:1 - 15:13); and ends with so many commands to greet each other with 'a holy kiss' (16:16). However, as with most of Paul's practical counsel, all this is firmly rooted in sound 'gospel' theology.

5.0 out of 5 stars Christianity; the 'how to' 9 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
David Pawson is a fine Bible teacher and clearly a deeply committed Christian. This is a book for committed Christians, particularly those who have grown in faith. As such, it's hard hitting and a very good test. Full of deep insight and indeed theology, but immensely practical as well. Yes, Jesus Christ is my Saviour! This book answered some fundamental remaining questions and doubts some of which have been nagging for more than 40 years. A hard test, but I emerged even stronger, even more committed, and so grateful. Perhaps with the emphasis on the first word, as the introduction suggests, I also found Romans 'strangely warm', particularly after reading this book. To my brothers and sisters in Christ, it's a must.

1.0 out of 5 stars I think this misleading commentary is pretty much useless to most Christians 16 Mar 2014
By Jay Linnstrom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
David Pawson likes to shift the focus away from the glorious Gospel message explained in the Book of Romans. So he'd rather focus on a minor issue concerning Jewish believers in the Roman church. I think this misleading commentary is pretty much useless to most Christians.
