While widely acknowledged as an influential document in Christian history, ^Paul's Letter to the Romans has also attracted considerable comment. ^Standing at the head of Paul's writings in the New Testament, Romans has ^presented Paul to generations of readers: from Augustine in the 5th ^century, through the Reformation era, down to the present day. This ^commentary adopts a literary-rhetorical approach, viewing the letter as an ^instrument of persuasion designed to transform readers through a ^celebratory presentation of the Gospel.^Reflecting upon the fate of the Jews and Gentiles, Paul wins his audience ^to a vision of a God who always acts inclusively. The God who, in the ^person of Israel's Messiah (Jesus), has acted faithfully to include the ^Gentile peoples within the community of salvation, will not fail to see to ^the eventual inclusion of Israel as well. In the victory of grace ^displayed already in the risen humanity of Jesus, the original design of ^the Creator for human communities and the world begins to come true.^The interpretation of Paul's letter to Rome has accompanied and stimulated ^the path of Christian theology down to today. This volume touches upon ^virtually all the main issues of Christian theology, as well as ^presentiong an introduction to Paul and his Gospel through the letter, ^allowing Christians today to hear his voice as powerfully as it has spoken ^to past generations.
