Encounter Romans on its own terms

Paul’s majestic letter to the Romans has impacted generations of readers. Christians regularly turn to it as a foundation for theology and practice. All too often, however, individual verses are pulled from their context or later doctrinal formulations are mapped onto the text. Are we truly understanding Paul? What if we return to Romans on its own terms?

Aaron Sherwood’s Romans commentary keeps Paul’s argument central. Sherwood traces the flow and rhetoric of Paul’s reasoning throughout. As readers reencounter the letter, detailed structural diagrams ensure the forest is never lost for the trees.

Guided by Sherwood’s careful attentiveness, readers will be rewarded with illuminating and sometimes surprising insights.

Praise for Romans

Sherwood insists that the structure of Romans should determine what is (and is not) of central importance and, breaking from traditional paradigms, offers a reading of the letter that is original, well-argued, and highly stimulating.

—John M. G. Barclay, Lightfoot Professor of Divinity, Durham University

Aaron Sherwood offers readers a gift with this commentary on Romans. You will benefit from Sherwood’s careful attention to this letter.

—Ben C. Blackwell, Associate professor of theology, Houston Baptist University

Sherwood’s work will benefit even the most seasoned reader of Romans.

—Kelly Liebengood, Professor of biblical studies and theology, LeTourneau University

Top Highlights

“The point is not one of God seeking Israel’s approval, but of the contrast between his treatment of them and Edom.” (Page 503)

“Thus, the wordplay in vv. 14–17 contributes to the idea in v. 18, that national Israel both did and did not ἀκου- at the same time: unbelieving Jews’ problem is not merely informational (i.e., hearing), but one of response (i.e., obedience).” (Page 567)

“So v. 30 makes no sense if forced to read as any sort of description or outline of a chronological sequence. Paul is giving a snapshot of a cluster of grapes, not describing links in a chain.” (Page 461)

“God has remained faithful to Israel, and shown them forbearance instead of the judgment he brought upon (equally) wicked Edom.” (Page 504)

“God does this despite—even by way of—the consequence facing national Israel (‘did so in order that he might …,’ v. 23a).” (Page 525)
