Item description for Elusive Israel: The Puzzle of Election in Romans by Charles H. Cosgrove...

Cosgrove's interpretation of Paul's letter to the Romans is a study of the identity and destiny of Israel. He realizes that language allows for many possible interpretations, saying that Bible readers can never know for certain Paul's intent, but they can establish a range of interpretations by taking the book in various contexts. Cosgrove also examines Israel as symbol and metaphor, nationalism and national differentiation in Pauline perspective, and the politics of God according to Romans 11.

Publishers Description

Many Bible interpreters assume a biblical text has only one right meaning and that it can be found if the reader uses the right methods. Charles Cosgrove, on the other hand, recognizes that language often admits multiple meanings and that scholars must deal with several sensible readings. As an example, "Elusive Israel" examines the identity of Israel in Romans 11, arguing for three equally plausible interpretations.
