This collection of essays integrates scholarly and scriptural interpretations, Eastern Orthodox biblical scholarship, together with biblical interpretations throughout church history. Unlike the Western interpretations that read Romans in terms of theological anthropology, the Greek Fathers don’t presuppose such a concept. Each of the articles in Greek Patristic and Eastern Orthodox Interpretations of Romans invites Western scholars and students to re-read Paul’s letter with new eyes: with a greater sensitivity to the nuances of the Greek text, an openness to envision what Paul is saying from very different theological and hermeneutical perspectives, and the awareness that the Greek Fathers addressed particular contextual issues of their time.
