Anyone who tries to read through Paul's epistle to the Romans soon discovers it is a dense and difficult text. Some of the difficulties are concealed by modern translations, yet even those translations are likely to baffle the average reader with unfamiliar terms-or to mislead the well-informed reader with terms that are over-familiar through the Christian doctrinal tradition. Morgan provides a guide to Romans, to help modern readers understand what Paul intended his audience to understand. The religious language of the epistle, its use of scripture and tradition, and its impact are all clearly discussed, with the needs of students in mind.
