"Romans 5-8 are explored, pressed, and at times--as they should be--simply celebrated. Every reader interested in Paul will benefit from this interplay of theology, exegesis, and subtle intertextuality, threaded through with church tradition. Perhaps most importantly, many of the apostle's most powerful and challenging thoughts are on display here at the hands of some of his most significant and gifted current interpreters."
--Douglas A. Campbell, Associate Professor of New Testament, Duke Divinity School
"This volume brings us into the company of seasoned Pauline scholars focused on the center of Paul's Epistle to the Romans. The conversation among these experts, all sympathetic (though not all in the same way) to the designation of Paul as an 'apocalyptic' figure, reveals richly informed engagement with the text and honest wrestling with the large questions of cosmology and anthropology raised by Romans 5-8. Altogether the essays in this volume stand as a profoundly stimulating, challenging, crucial, and timely contribution to the conversation about Paul's interpretation of the gospel in what remains for the time being contested territory."
--Alexandra Brown, Jessie Ball duPont Professor of Religion, Washington and Lee University
"We are indebted to Beverly Gaventa for this fine collection. This is an unusually strong series of studies by respected Paul scholars that should be of interest to anyone preaching and teaching from Romans, especially Romans 5-8."
--A. Katherine Grieb, Professor of New Testament, Virginia Theological Seminary
