Reading Romans Backwards: A Gospel of Peace in the Midst of Empire

#ad
Baylor University Press #ad - Reading forward has led readers to classify Romans as abstract and systematic theology, as a letter unstained by real pastoral concerns. But what if a different strategy were adopted? could it be that the secret to understanding the relationship between theology and life, the key to unlocking Romans, is to begin at the letter’s end? Scot McKnight does exactly this in  Reading Romans Backwards.

Mcknight begins with romans 12–16, foregrounding the problems that beleaguered the house churches in Rome. Beginning with the end places readers right in the middle of a community deeply divided between the strong and the weak, each side dug in on their position. Finally, which is so often read as simply an abstract soteriological scheme, McKnight shows how the widely regarded "universal" sinfulness of Romans 1–4, applies to a particular rhetorical character’s sinfulness and has a polemical challenge.

Reading Romans Backwards: A Gospel of Peace in the Midst of Empire #ad - Zondervan. To read romans from beginning to end, from letter opening to final doxology, is to retrace the steps of Paul. Mcknight shows that paul’s letter to the Romans offers a sustained lesson on peace, teaching applicable to all divided churches, ancient or modern. It focuses all of romans―paul’s apostleship, God’s faithfulness, and Christ’s transformation of humanity―on achieving grace and peace among all people, both strong and weak.

In paul’s letter, no one gets off the hook but everyone is offered God’s grace. Reading romans backwards places lived theology in the front room of every Roman house church.
