Item description for Reading Israel in Romans (Romans Thorugh History and Culture Series) by Cristina Grenholm & Daniel Patte...
Overview This is a book much needed in the liberal theological seminaries and the communities they serve.
Publishers Description Applying the insights of reception theory to biblical criticism, the contributors to this volume propose a scriptural criticism which encourages scholars and ordinary believers to engage in a dialogue about their interpretations of particular texts. Grenholm and Patte suggest that the relationship between various theological and ecclesiastical readings of Romans can be clarified by discussing the ways that each interpretation is framed analytically, contextually, and hermeneutically. The inaugural volume in this series, this book applies scriptural criticism to Romans 4 and 9-11, examining the ways that Christians read Israel in Romans and relate to Jews. Each essay contains notes that indicate how, when, and in what way a given writer frames his or her interpretation of the text. Contributors to the volume include Thomas Parker and Robert L. Brawley, McCormick Theological Seminary; Joseph Sievers, Pontifical Biblical Institute, Rome; Gunter Wasserberg, Christian Albrechts University, Germany; William Campbell, University of Wales; Mark Nanos, University of St. Andrews; Daniel Boyarin, University of California, Berkeley. Cristina Grenholm teaches at University of Karlstad, Sweden. She is the author of The Old Testament, Christianity and Pluralism (Tubingen). Daniel Patte teaches at Vanderbilt University. His previous books include The Challenge of Discipleship (Trinity) and Discipleship According to the Sermon on the Mount (Trinity). For: Seminarians, Pauline scholars, those interested in Jewish-Christian relations and biblical interpretation>
