About-

At the end of Romans 11, Paul quotes both Isaiah and Job. As with other New Testament uses of Old Testament texts, this raises several questions. What is the context of these Old Testament passages? How are they used in other Jewish literature? What is Paul's hermeneutical warrant for using them in Romans 11? What theological use does Paul make of them? How, if at all, does their use in Romans 11 contribute to the broader discussion on the use of the Old Testament in the New? In addressing these questions, this book reveals a remarkable typological connection that climaxes in the doxology of Romans 11:33-36, exalting God's incomprehensibility, wisdom, mercy, grace, patience, independence, and sovereignty.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"In the growing literature that examines how the New Testament cites the Old, this book makes its own important contribution. Writing with enviable clarity, Naselli not only carefully traces out the Old Testament background behind Romans 11:34-35, but makes a strong case for an overlooked typology that contributes a theologically rich strand to our understanding of God."
--D. A. Carson, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"Surprises are in store for the reader of this book, for Naselli conducts a helpful tour of the message of Romans, Isaiah, and Job. Furthermore, he insightfully demonstrates the typological use of the Old Testament in Romans 11:34-35. This is written with an engaging style that is typically lacking in scholarly works."
--Thomas R. Schreiner, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"This fine study fills a gap in the literature . . . It traces out Paul's reasons for doxological utterance, thereby leading readers to contemplate God in his deep knowledge, wisdom, and mystery. [It] exemplifies technical exegesis at a mature level while laying groundwork for the theological interpretation being called for today. From Typology to Doxology deserves a wide readership among all with an interest in Romans, Paul, God, or any combination of the three."
--Robert W. Yarbrough, Covenant Theological Seminary
