    Paul's Letter to the Romans is one of the most influential writings of Christian theology. From the time of Augustine it has been central in discussions about sin and salvation, about guilt, fear of God, and gratitude for God's mercy. In this groundbreaking reinterpretation, Stanley Stowers argues that Christian tradition has interpreted Romans in an anachronistic fashion fundamentally. This essay summarizes my book The Deliverance of God: An Apocalyptic Rereading of Justification in Paul in two main stages. First it describes the book’s distinctive account of a problem in modern Pauline scholarship in relation to several key debates and some of their most important representative figures—Wrede, Sanders, Stendahl, and Martyn.

    The deliverance of God: an apocalyptic rereading of justification in Paul / This book breaks a significant impasse in much Pauline interpretation, pushing beyond both " Lutheran" and "New" perspectives on Paul to a non-contractual, "apocalyptic" reading of many of the apostle's most famous, and most troublesome, texts. As we undertake these studies in Romans, our primary effort should be to familiarize ourselves with the Bible text itself. This we may do through careful reading and rereading. Following Dr. James M. Gray in his book, How to Master the English Bible, we suggest the following five rules for this reading.

    Towards a Pauline Theory of Gender: Rereading Romans Romans , but it must be confessed that Badiou never, in the course of his book, discusses Romans See. 3 after what Paul is doing with it in the verses leading up and coming to their climax immediately prior. Having thoroughly discredited JT in parts , Campbell offers his rereading of Romans in part four. In chapter thirteen, he describes the circumstances that led to the writing of Romans.
