Solus Deus: Untersuchungen zur Rede von Gott im Brief des Paulus an die Römer
Flebbe, Jochen

Berlin: de Gruyter, 2008 pp. xiii + 509. $165.00

Series Information
Beihefte zur Zeitschrift für die neutestamentliche Wissenschaft und die Kunde der älteren Kirche, 158


Description: In previous exegesis of the Epistle to the Romans, God has scarcely ever been presented as a separate object of study. The present study is devoted to this central topic, and by analysing important sections of the Epistle to the Romans demonstrates that it is neither Jesus Christ nor anthropology that provides the decisive pattern of argument, but God. This has consequences both for Paul’s self-image and for the question of whether Paul’s thinking and his image of God are to be regarded as still being Jewish or already being Christian.

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