A Classic from the SBL Dissertation series now back in print

This dissertation from the SBL Dissertation Series defines the problem of the ‘Romans debate’ as the quest for the purpose(s) of Paul’s letter to the Romans. Miller proposes that Paul wrote to the Romans in order to shape ‘a community of the new age’ thereby heading off opposition to his gospel before it could take root among the Roman Christians during his absence. Miller concludes that Paul’s letter to the Romans was a preemptive strike against opposition that Paul expected would arrive in Rome before he did.

Features:

  • Clear case for purpose behind Romans
  • Six-page appendix addresses the authenticity of Romans 16:25-27

James C. Miller is Professor of Inductive Bible Studies and New Testament at Asbury Theological Seminary in Orlando, Florida.
