About-

I. Howard Marshall described Tom Holland's groundbreaking Contours of Pauline Theology as a "remarkably fresh and creative study which makes one rethink familiar passages in new ways," while Anthony Thiselton remarked that "many of its arguments offer corrections to widespread misunderstandings of Paul."

Here in his new study the insights of Holland's former work, with its central "New Exodus" paradigm, impact radically upon earlier readings of Paul's Letter to the Romans, revealing that these readings were controlled by eclectic methodologies that have in varying measure obscured the message of the biblical text.

Those who have already encountered Contours will be eager to discover how a corporate reading of the Apostle Paul's greatest contribution to the New Testament unfolds, and how--to highlight but one issue--a forensic sense of justification is to be maintained in the light of a broader covenantal context.

Many readers will be amazed that yet another study of a biblical text that has been subjected to so many fingertip searches in the past can yield such fresh evidence. All in all, Tom Holland's new commentary will not only affect the way one reads Romans, it will change the way that one looks at the Bible as a whole.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"As the subtitle indicates, Tom Holland's Romans is truly both biblical and theological, as the letter is set firmly in its unfolding canonical context. 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. Above all, Tom Holland deploys his scholarship to produce a very salient and practical commentary."
-Anthony C. Thiselton
Professor of Christian Theology, University of Nottingham

"This vigorously argued commentary seeks to allow Old Testament themes and thought patterns, not misguided scholarly conventions, to control Romans' message . . . Scholars of Romans will be stimulated by interaction with this canonically alert, creative, and frequently contrarian exposition and synthesis of a Pauline classic."
-Robert W. Yarbrough
Associate Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"All agree that Holland has moved the debate on Paul decisively forwards and that a significant counter-proposal to the proponents of the New Perspective on Paul has been launched."
-Peter Wilkinson
author of Open Source Theology

"If there is intellectual integrity in the evangelical world, I am convinced this reading of Romans will win the day eventually."
-Colin Hamer
author of Finding God's Will: Reaffirming the Sufficiency of Scripture
