This book brings international Christian scholars together to celebrate Robert Jewett's lifelong interest in Romans by reviewing--and significantly advancing--five fruitful approaches to Paul's most influential work.

James D. G. Dunn, Jeffrey B. Gibson, and Graydon F. Snyder show where the "new approach" to Pauline theology elucidates and corrects earlier theological appropriations of the letter to the Romans. William S. Campbell, James D. Hester, and Wilhelm Wuellner illustrate different models of rhetorical criticism. Peter Lampe and Carolyn Osiek show what can be gained by a social-historical approach to Romans. Sheila E. McGinn, Elsa Tamez, and Pamela Thimmes demonstrate how a feminist hermeneutic clarifies key texts from Romans and challenges the interpretive tradition. Keith Augustus Burton, Lareta Halteman Finger, and L. D. Hurst create a conversation between Paul's letter and contemporary culture. An introduction provides context for these chapters by offering a helpful overview of recent trends in New Testament scholarship that are pertinent to Pauline studies, particularly the study of Romans.

The authors, all established teachers in academic and church settings, recognize the need for analyses of the Bible that are substantial and scholarly but also intelligible to nonspecialists. The essays in Celebrating Romans will challenge the thinking of students and scholars alike, illuminating diverse methods of biblical analysis and fostering a deeper appreciation for and engagement with this crowning literary achievement of the apostle to the Gentiles.
