"This freshly minted and admirably readable exposition of Romans may be 'short' but it is certainly not shallow. Those who already know Robert Jewett’s ‘long commentary,’ no less than those who do not, will benefit from learning what he himself has chosen to highlight in Paul’s most celebrated letter and in his own celebrated interpretation of it."
—Victor Paul Furnish
Southern Methodist University
"With Romans: A Short Commentary, Robert Jewett's monumental Hermeneia commentary is now available in a more student and pastor friendly format and price, and will receive its much-deserved use in the classroom and pulpit. Shifting Luther, Calvin, and Wesley from the center of the interpretation of Romans, Jewett finds in the letter a gospel opposed to the perverse, imperial honor/shame system with its "exceptionalism in virtue and honor." Whether or not you agree with this radical paradigm shift in the history of the interpretation of Romans, your wrestling with it will enrich your reading of Paul’s letter."
—David J. Lull
Wartburg Theological Seminary
"A portable version of his magisterial Hermeneia commentary, this book makes Jewett's groundbreaking work with Romans eminently accessible for study and teaching purposes in multiple settings. It will contribute to unlocking the transformative potential of Paul’s key letter as a challenge to imperial paradigms past and present, and as a powerful resource for rethinking the common future of humankind across split lines of status, privilege, and class."
