Summary: Chapters 9-11 of Romans remains one of the most contested biblical texts in scholarship today. Theological discussions often limit the focus of this passage to God's sovereignty or to Paul's defense of God's faithfulness, but less attention has been devoted to the form and style. Wallace demonstrates how Paul weaves two distinct Jewish literary forms together--lament and midrash-into a logical narrative concerning Israel's salvation. Attention is given to Paul's poetical structures, key literary terms, and use of Old Testament contexts.
