Rather, it offers new and perhaps truer views of Pauls actual concerns and objectives in writing the letter--and to the arguments he makes in it. According to Tobin, Paul wrote this letter as a response to the Roman Christian communitys suspicion of him because of his controversial past and writing, rethinking and revising some of the positions he took earlier in his letters to the Galatian and Corinthian churches.Tobin argues that, while recent ecumenically minded works have moved beyond long-standing denominational interpretations to offer a broader perspective on Romans, they have still not broken through the basic framework itself of these interpretations.

For example, while most interpreters have moved beyond taking denominational positions in the interpretation of Romans on such topics as justification by faith, salvation, or the works of the law, the belief has remained that these topics are, indeed, what Pauls letter to the Romans is about.This substantial reevaluation of Romans provides a rich array of fresh perspectives on the book, offering new ways to understand and use the letter, both in the interpretation of early Christianity and in contemporary theological discussion.

Scholars and pastors alike will find the bibliography, outline, and indexes useful.
