Reading Romans Backwards: A Gospel of Peace in the Midst of EmpireBaylor University Press #ad - To read romans from beginning to end, from letter opening to final doxology, is to retrace the steps of Paul.

Finally, mcknight shows how the widely regarded "universal" sinfulness of Romans 1–4, which is so often read as simply an abstract soteriological scheme, applies to a particular rhetorical character’s sinfulness and has a polemical challenge.

To read romans front to back was what Paul certainly intended. Mcknight shows that paul’s letter to the Romans offers a sustained lesson on peace, teaching applicable to all divided churches, ancient or modern. The strong assert social power and privilege, while the weak claim an elected advantage in Israel’s history.
