Item description for The Romans Debate: Revised and Expanded Edition by Karl Paul Donfried...
Overview In 1977 a collection of essays appeared that quickly became a standard for studying the purpose and occasion of Romans. Now The Romans Debate: Revised and Expanded Edition is available in a newly designed and enlarged format. Besides the original essays, the new edition includes thirteen of the most cogent, recent articles on this subject; a comprehensive bibliography; and an index. This is not a volume for the "already decided." Spanning the spectrum of interpretation, these essays attempt to challenge opposing views, complement points of consensus, and above all contribute to our understanding of Paul's controversial letter to the Romans. In its own unique way, each of these articles compels the reader to return to the text and to listen anew to the message of Romans both for Paul's day and for ours.

good collection Aug 24, 2001
The Roman's Debate, edited by Karl Donfried, is collection of papers by respected scholars on Paul's letter to the Romans. This covers much of the major studies up to 1991. The papers deal with various ways Roman's has been approached; as Paul's last will and testament, the study of rhetoric, the Jewish and Roman Christian audience, form criticism, historical and sociological settings, structure and theology. The book has a great bibliography and index. Much of this is still fresh, even after 10 years. I recommend it for the serious Pauline student.
