The Mystery of Romans: The Jewish Context of Paul's Letter
Mark D. Nanos
From The Publisher:
1996 National Jewish Book Award
Paul's letter to the Romans, says Nanos, is an example of Jewish correspondence, addressing believers in Jesus who are steeped in Jewish ways—whether of Jewish or gentile origin. Arguing against those who think Paul was an apostate from Judaism, Nanos maintains Paul's continuity with his Jewish heritage. Several key arguments here are:
"Nano's construction is fascinating and 'productive'. . .and will stay in my head as I continue to read and ponder Romans."
"Takes seriously the notion that Paul was a Jew within the Jewish community and yet also a person for whom the experience of Christ made an imporatnt difference."
—Alan F. Segal
"Student discussions always return to the new perspective presented by Nanos."
—David M. May
