Chalice Commentaries for Today - Romans

  • By John B. Cobb, Jr.
  • By David J. Lull
$19.99
($27.99)
Cobb and Lull provide a fresh look at the book of Romans, unique from other interpretations in three ways. First, they interpret Romans as concerned with community salvation rather than focused on individual salvation. Second, they see its theme as God's righteousness stemming from Jesus' faithfulness, not individual beliefs. And third, Cobb and Lull approach the book of Romans more theologically than exegetically. They seek the function of the theological findings for Paul's day and for ours. The authors take the position that Paul's teachings have been misrepresented, particularly his thoughts regarding patterns of morality, especially those focused on homosexual acts and the subordination of women to men. They claim that when Paul is more accurately read, there is much in his writings of which today's church stands in dire need. Lastly, Cobb and Lull explore the book of Romans through nineteen theses: evil, sexual excess, legalism, life in the Spirit, salvation, Jesus' death, justification by faith alone, faithfulness, Jesus's faithfulness and our salvation, Jesus and Paul, election and predestination, God's wrath and judgment, mutual immanence, the future, Christians and Jews, individualism and salvation history, hierarchical institutions, and economical and political issues.
