From Rome to Beijing: Symposia on Bob Jewett’s Romans commentary

Just got this memo to SBL members:

K. K. Yeo and Robert Jewett

We want to announce the release of From Rome to Beijing, a selection of essays delivered in twenty-six symposia devoted to the evaluation of the Hermeneia commentary on Romans. Leading scholars in Asia, Africa, Europe and North America offered their assessments of this commentary, resulting in conversations about its contemporary relevance in the global environment. The direction from Rome to Beijing marks the opening of new interpretive arenas that move far beyond the traditional parameters of Pauline debate. This book will provide a provocative resource to stimulate discussion by students and scholars around the world.

This volume appears in a new monograph series, Kairos Studies, and can be ordered at Amazon or Barnes & Noble. The paperback price of this 499-page volume is $35; the hardcover price is $42; and the e-book price of $9.99. Since the book is being marketed in an inexpensive form without the resources of a traditional publisher, we would be grateful if you would forward this announcement to your librarian; the ISBN number is 978-1-937216-38-2.

Great news!
