"This volume brings us into the company of seasoned Pauline scholars focused on the center of Paul's Epistle to the Romans. The conversation among these experts all sympathetic (though not all in the same way) to the designation of Paul as an 'apocalyptic' figure, reveals richly informed engagement with the text and honest wrestling with the large questions of cosmology and anthropology raised by Romans 5-8. Altogether the essays in this volume stand as a profoundly stimulating, challenging, crucial, and timely contribution to the conversation about Paul's interpretation of the gospel in what remains for the time being contested territory."―Alexandra Brown, Jessie Ball duPont Professor of Religion, Washington and Lee University
"We are indebted to Beverly Gaventa for this fine collection. This is an unusually strong series of studies by respected Paul scholars that should be of interest to anyone preaching and teaching from Romans, especially Romans 5-8."―A. Katherine Grieb, Professor of New Testament, Virginia Theological Seminary
"...this handsomely presented volume is surely welcome as an excellent sampling of the rich interpretive possibilities of apocalyptic for coming to grips with the cosmic dimensions of Paul's thought, not only in Rom 5–8 but in his letters in general. It will serve well as an introduction to apocalyptic for advanced students of Paul and as a scholarly contribution to the theological interpretation of Romans."―Timothy Gombis, Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, Review of Biblical Literature
"A fine introduction to the apocalyptic Paul."―Michael J. Gorman, St. Mary's Seminary and University, Interpretation
"Treat yourself to the complexity of this volume, but do so with your favorite translation of Romans 5-8 close in hand, never far from the artistry of Paul's narrative and the complexity of his own voice[Gaventa's collection] is a rich feast for those who hunger to learn ― and be challenged ― in our ongoing conversation with the Apostle Paul."―Sean Miller, Pastor of Potomac Presbyterian Church, The Presbyterian Outlook
"This book is a fantastic addition to Pauline and New Testament studies...All scholars, pastors, and students will find this book to be both intellectually stimulating and a helpful aid."―Jared Brown, Wheaton Blog
