Reading Romans with Contemporary Philosophers and Theologians explores the recent works by philosophers and theologians who engage Paul's letter to the Romans by scholars in the fields of New Testament studies, theology and philosophy from North America and Europe. The first part of the volume is an engaging discussion of the recently published commentary Romans (Chalice Press, 2005) by co-authors John Cobb and David Lull with Jouette Bassler and David Odell-Scott. The second part of the volume offers engaging articles by Val rie Nicolet Anderson, Alain Gignac, Theodore Jennings and Ola Sigurdson which discuss recent works on Romans by continental philosophers Giorgio Agamben, Alain Badiou, Jacob Taubes and Slovoj Zizek, and which explore the influences of Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Levinas, Benjamin, and Derrida on the recent interest in Saint Paul. The final chapter by Kathy Ehrensperger is an exploration of the possibility of a dialogue between Paul of Tarsus and Emmanuel Levinas.
