Description: This important volume provides a contemporary reassessment of the Pauline doctrine of justification from both Protestant and Roman Catholic perspectives. The essays represent the culmination of a new ecumenical spirit and several decades of conversation between Lutheran and Roman Catholic representatives, a process that culminated in a Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification that was signed in 1999. The biblical, historical, and theological chapters in Rereading Paul Together balance Protestant and Roman Catholic perspectives. The contributors are David G. Truemper (on the Joint Declaration), David M. Rylaarsdam (patristic interpretation), Randall C. Zachman (medieval and Reformation understandings), Joseph A. Fitzmyer (Catholic interpretation of Paul), Richard E. DeMaris (responding to Fitzmyer), John Reumann (Lutheran interpretation of Paul), Margaret M. Mitchell (responding to Reumann), Susan K. Wood (Catholic reception of the Joint Declaration), Michael J. Root (Lutheran reception of the Joint Declaration), and David E. Aune (on recent Pauline scholarship).
