Solving the Romans Debate
Das, A. Andrew

Minneapolis: Fortress, 2007 pp. xii + 324. $24.00


Description: Scholars have long debated the "double character" of Romans. Why did Paul address a long discussion of Jewish themes to a Gentile audience? Das provides a fresh understanding of the identity and attitudes of the Gentile Christians in Rome and of the expulsion of Jews from Rome under the emperor Claudius. His reading offers new insight into Paul's concern for the Jewish roots of the Christ movement.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Pauline Epistles, Romans, Literature
