Katherine Grieb argues that Romans can best be understood as Paul's telling of a master story - about what God has done in Christ - and its implications for the life and mission of the Roman churches. She explains why Paul tells the stories he does and shows how these stories are related to his larger narrative of God's righteousness. She encourages readers to relate these stories to their own lives, and relates them herself to contemporary issues such as poverty, racial prejudice and drug abuse.
Katherine Grieb insightfully traces the argument of Paul's letter to the Romans and shows how it is grounded in the story of God's faithfulness to Israel. She draws together a number of crucial insights: the narrative character of Paul's thought, the apocalyptic message of his gospel, the depth of his engagement with Israel's Scripture, and the practical and political impact of his theology. She demonstrates the letter's relevance today and invites contemporary readers to locate their own stories within Paul's account of God's righteousness. Informed by recent Pauline scholarship, this book will be useful to scholars, students, and pastors. Book jacket.
