Cobb and Lull provide a fresh look at the book of Romans, unique from other interpretations in three ways. First, they interpret Romans as concerned with community salvation rather than focused on individual salvation. Second, they see its theme as God's righteousness stemming from Jesus' faithfulness, not individual beliefs. And third, Cobb and Lull approach the book of Romans more theologically than exegetically. They seek the function of the theological findings for Paul's day and for ours. The authors take the position that Paul's teachings have been misrepresented, particularly his thoughts regarding patterns of morality, especially those focused on homosexual acts and the subordination of women to men. They claim that when Paul is more accurately read, there is much in his writings of which today's church stands in dire need. Lastly, Cobb and Lull explore the book of Romans through nineteen theses: evil, sexual excess, legalism, life in the Spirit, salvation, Jesus' death, justification by faith alone, faithfulness, Jesus's faithfulness and our salvation, Jesus and Paul, election and predestination, God's wrath and judgment, mutual immanence, the future, Christians and Jews, individualism and salvation history, hierarchical institutions, and economical and political issues.

About the Author:

John Cobb Jr. is Ingraham Professor of Theology, emeritus, at Claremont School of Theology. He is the author of more than twenty books, including The Process Perspective and Lay Theology, from Chalice Press.
David Lull is Professor of New Testament at the Wartburg Theological Seminary and an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church; formerly the director of the Bible Translation and Utilization program of the National Council of Churches of Christ in the U.S.A., executive director of the Society of Biblical Literature, and associate professor of New Testament at the Yale University Divinity School.

Review:

"Interest in and ferment about the epistle to the Romans continue at a fresh and suggestive pace because everything is at issue for Christians in the claims of Paul's letter. Cobb and Lull pursue what they term 'process-relational thought' in a rich way to contribute to the current rereading of the letter. Their focus is upon Paul's representation of the gospel beyond the 'law-keeping' community of Jewish-Christian believers. Readers will find their exposition an important challenge, notably in such extended discussions as the 'exchange' of creature for creator in chapter 1, and on the vexed issue of 'atonement' in 3:25. The book teems with vigorous and daring connections to the crisis now before the Western Church."
