Abstract and Keywords

This article looks at the outline, form, and content of Romans. Paul's letter to the Romans is an extraordinary text with an extraordinary history. It can make a strong claim to be the most interpreted book in the Bible. Readings of the epistle have played key roles during major developments in Christian thought (Augustine, Luther, Barth, etc.), and beyond these famous episodes there lies a vast quantity of less well-known readings, analyses, and appropriations. In terms of modern scholarly literature, there is a mind-boggling array of research with seemingly endless bibliographies being a common feature of monographs and commentaries.

Keywords: Paul, Romans, Augustine, Luther, epistles, Barth
