Book Description

31 July 2013
Robert Jewetts 1,000-page commentary on Romans in the Hermeneia series (2008) was a landmark in the interpretation of Pauls most complexand some would say, most importantletter: a new benchmark for the genre (David deSilva); readable and profound (Luise Schottroff); the new authoritative reference work for scholars (Daniel Patte). It has also been the focus of international conferences and conversations ever since its publication.Taking account of those far-reaching conversations, Jewett now brings the best insights of the larger commentary into a more compact and accessible form, ideal for use in college and graduate courses.

Product Description

Review

This freshly minted and admirably readable exposition of Romans may be short but it is certainly not shallow. Those who already know Robert Jewett s long commentary, no less than those who do not, will benefit from learning what he himself has chosen to highlight in Paul s most celebrated letter and in his own celebrated interpretation of it. --Victor Paul Furnish, Southern Methodist University

With Romans: A Short Commentary, Robert Jewett s monumental Hermeneia commentary is now available in a more student and pastor friendly format and price, and will receive its much-deserved use in the classroom and pulpit. Shifting Luther, Calvin, and Wesley from the center of the interpretation of Romans, Jewett finds in the letter a gospel opposed to the perverse, imperial honor/shame system with its exceptionalism in virtue and honor. Whether or not you agree with this radical paradigm shift in the history of the interpretation of Romans, your wrestling with it will enrich your reading of Paul s letter. --David J. Lull, Wartburg Theological Seminary

A portable version of his magisterial Hermeneia commentary, this book makes Jewett s groundbreaking work with Romans eminently accessible for study and teaching purposes in multiple settings. It will contribute to unlocking the transformative potential of Paul s key letter as a challenge to imperial paradigms past and present, and as a powerful resource for rethinking the common future of humankind across split lines of status, privilege, and class. --Brigitte Kahl, Union Theological Seminary

5.0 out of 5 stars Jewett's Important Work 19 Nov 2013
By P. E. Hall - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This scaled down version of Jewett's over 1,00 page commentary provides a manageable and insightful look into the very important Pauline letter to the churches in Rome. Jewett's scholarship is impeccable and fresh. He refuses to bow to traditional understandings of the epistle and through careful research and interpretation he offers a era appropriate contextual look at Paul's letter. I bought this book for a class on Romans and Galatians and I am so glad I did. Excellent!
