Tom Holland’s Romans is biblical and devotional in the best sense of those terms. His striking emphasis on the theological themes of the Old Testament is uncommon among New Testament specialists. Although New Testament scholars emphasize the history and world(s) of the first century, Holland focuses on theology within the context of Scripture. Leaving room for preachers and teachers to apply Paul’s insight to their community today, Holland’s Romans will help Christians enter into deeper communion with God and one another. This work is commendable not only for preachers wanting to offer insights into Paul’s theology, it nicely disrupts current fads in Pauline scholarship. Romans: The Divine Marriage is a ‘true’ biblical theology influenced primarily by the witness of the Old Testament narrative, thankfully, without all the ‘scholarly historic fiction’ often produced by modern biblical scholars. All should ‘take and read’ in order to better understand the Bible’s narrative from Paul’s ‘perspective.’
