Romans was hailed by the Reformers, as it has been by many since their days, as Paul's supreme masterpiece, and a key to the rest of the Bible. But it is a hard, heavy, close-packed theological argument, and studying it is as demanding in its own way as climbing Everest. This series aims to present at least the dimensions of the letter, in the manner of a helicopter flying around Everest, enabling one to view it from all angles. The important problems of interpretation will be noted, and the main lines of implication and will be drawn our in general terms. Lectures include:
