By Johanna Sawyer
A fresh interpretation of Romans (with Galatians) changed the world during the Reformation. Here, Lopez makes a compelling and plausible case that greater contextual attention to the use of certain words (wrath and salvation) along with making sure the theme adopted takes into consideration the entire epistle (including 9-11) are needed to grasp Paul’s meaning. This book greatly clarified Romans for me. Understanding his surprising thesis on “wrath” in the Bible generally, but especially in the OT, and his stunning thesis on Paul’s specific employment of the term “salvation” as he uses it in Romans show that Paul’s language is far more lucid and far less obscure than other understandings of Romans. I’d sort of given up hope of thoroughly understanding this book of the Bible, since certain passages have seemed so obscure to me. Put this in your library and give it away as gifts!
