In this vigorously argued commentary Holland has produced a clearer and simpler reworking of his earlier scholarly work 'The Divine Marriage' in order to engage with the less expert audience. In this highly readable analysis, Tom Holland asks the reader to rethink familiar passages in Paul's Letter to the Romans in fresh ways.

By offering numerous corrections to widespread misunderstandings of Paul, Holland's examination reveals how numerous false readings of this well-known epistle are controlled by eclectic methodologies that have in varying measure obscured the message of the biblical text. His argument for a corporate reading highlights how the forensic sense of justification should be maintained in the light of the broader covenantal context. Tom Holland's Hope for the Nations is both truly biblical and thoroughly theological. Holland shows how Romans contributes to our understanding of God's covenant arrangement with humankind.

'The commentary digs deeply into current scholarship on the Old Testament roots of Paul's teaching, yet presents its conclusions in accessible language.' -Douglas Moo, Blanchard Professor of New Testament, Wheaton College.

'Tom Holland always remains alert to the influence and relevance of the Old Testament and emphasizes the impact of Paul's thought upon the church as a community as well as on the individual as part of that community ... a very salient and practical commentary.' -Anthony C. Thiselton, Professor of Christian Theology, University of Nottingham. Tom Holland is author of Contours of Pauline Theology (2004), an internationally acclaimed work.

Review:

'The commentary digs deeply into current scholarship on the Old Testament roots of Paul's teaching, yet presents its conclusions in accessible language.' -Douglas Moo, Blanchard Professor of New Testament, Wheaton College. 'Tom Holland always remains alert to the influence and relevance of the Old Testament and emphasizes the impact of Paul's thought upon the church as a community as well as on the individual as part of that community...a very salient and practical commentary.' -Anthony C. Thiselton, Professor of Christian Theology, University of Nottingham. "I commended this well researched and well written book to the Church and believe that the reader will benefit from it as I have in my own reading. I trust and pray that the material will find a wide audience, for it is indeed most deserving of such attention. And it now takes its rightful place in that considerable library section on Romans, but stands out through both confession of true faith and courageous scholarship. Congratulations to Dr Tom Holland and the publisher for this valuable and timely contribution to studies on Romans." - Michael A. Milton, Ph.D. (University of Wales, Trinity-St. David's), Presbyterian (PCA) minister; Chancellor and CEO and the James M. Baird Jr. Chair of Pastoral Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary. "Tom's commentary invites readers to break away from fixed ideas and journey to new places. It is informed, scholarly, rich in exegetical insights, yet easy to understand. Utilizing historical and contextual hermeneutics Tom argues for a reading of Romans that is tied to the Old Testament Scriptures, rooted in Isaiah, is Christ centred and communally focused. I highly recommend it for pilgrims seeking to know God more." - Lawson Murray, President, Scripture Union Canada, 1885 Clement Road, Pickering, Ontario, L1W 3V4 Canada "Tom Holland's study demonstrates how a deeper understanding of the Old Testament, and particularly of its prophesied new exodus, can illumine Paul's theology of the person and work of Christ in profound ways. Here one will find scholarship that is not only solid but faithful, thorough and yet accessible-in short, scholarship in service of the church." - L. Michael Morales, Ph.D., Professor of Biblical Studies, Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Greenville, SC "Thorough treatment of Paul's New Exodus motif, Holland highlights the link between Ezekiel's vision of the Davidic Passover and an act of propitiation which I'd never seen before, and deals with Christ as 'the firstborn' of creation and of his people in entirely paschal terms - an argument runs quite contra to N. T. Wright's or Dunn's better known 'Wisdom' explanations for the development of high Christology, such as found in Colossians. I think these are the highlights of the book."
