Scot McKnight talks about his book, Reading Romans Backwards: A Gospel of Peace in the Midst of Empire. He says “The operative terms for Paul … are Welcome one another to the table as siblings! The whole letter is found in that imperative.” He also says “Ethnicity … is at the heart of both the tension in Romans and the gospel message itself.” Listen in as he describes why he reads Romans from back to front and why he thinks you should try it too.
