Romans 5-8 revolve around God's dramatic cosmic activity and its implications for humanity and all of creation. Apocalyptic Paul measures the power of Paul's rhetoric about the relationship of cosmic power to the Law, interpretations of righteousness and the self, and the link between grace and obedience. A revealing study of Paul's understanding of humanity in light of God's apocalyptic action through Jesus Christ, Apocalyptic Paul illuminates Romans 5-8 and shows how critical this neglected part of Romans was to Paul's literary project.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Romans 5-8 are explored, pressed, and at times -- as they should be -- simply celebrated. Every reader interested in Paul will benefit from this interplay of theology, exegesis, and subtle intertextuality, threaded through with church tradition. Perhaps most importantly, many of the apostle's most powerful and challenging thoughts are on display here at the hands of some of his most significant and gifted current interpreters." -- Douglas A Campbell, Associate Professor of New Testament, Duke Divinity School
"This volume brings us into the company of seasoned Pauline scholars focused on the centre 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 & 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
