2017 E.P. Wahl Lectures
Reading Romans Missionally, featuring Dr. Michael GormanMikeGorman 100w

Taylor is excited to welcome an exceptional scholar whose work on Paul’s writings has generated significant discussion recently. Dr. Michael GormanRaymond E. Brown Professor of Biblical Studies and Theology at St. Mary’s Seminary, will be speaking on “Reading Romans Missionally.” Dr. Gorman is a Methodist who teaches and preaches in churches of all traditions, he is the author or editor of a dozen books, including Apostle of the Crucified Lord; Cruciformity: Paul’s Narrative Spirituality of the Cross; and Becoming the Gospel: Paul, Participation, and Mission.


Reading Romans Missionally

Romans is arguably the most influential Christian letter ever written. But it is neither a systematic theology nor a treasure chest full of proof texts about the gospel, salvation, and mission. Rather, it bears holistic witness to Paul’s perspective on God’s mission in the world, and on his—and our—participation in that mission.


Presentation # 1              
How (Not) to Read Romans Missionally

In the first presentation we consider inadequate ways of reading Romans in general, and with respect to mission in particular. We then take a bird’s-eye view of Romans to discern some of its major themes and how they reveal Paul’s agenda, as well as God’s mission, for our context.


Presentation # 2.            
Reading Romans 1-8 Missionally
In this session we look carefully at the major claims of the first half of Romans, focusing on Paul’s understanding of the human condition and how the saving mission of the Father, Son, and Spirit addresses that human predicament then and now. 




Presentation # 3              
Reading Romans 9-16 Missionally

In our last session we first consider the place of Israel in Paul’s missional theology. We then examine Paul’s vision of a multicultural community characterized by holiness, hospitality, justice, joyful worship, and public witness—and what all that means for the church today.
