Reading Romans Backwards

£19.99

As Paul’s Epistle to the Romans comes to an end in Chapters 12-16, we are offered fascinating insights into the everyday life of the church to whom Paul writes, and essential contextual details which shed light on the rest of the epistle. But the rest of the letter is so notoriously dense that these vital details are often missed, and the earlier chapters are read is if they were merely written for theology lecturers to expound rather than for the local church to ingest. In ‘Reading Romans Backwards,’ renowned New Testament scholar Scot McKnight demonstrates that fresh light can be thrown on Chapters 1-11 by first taking a deep look at Chapters 12-16. Reading the letter in this new way, McKnight explores how Romans offers a message of deep reconciliation and living in fellowship as siblings – a message of vital relevance to today’s church.
