Jewett Flattens Romans

so says Luke Timothy Johnson in the latest issue of Christian Century (January 15, 2008).  Johnson’s article, “Reading Romans,” a review of Robert Jewett’s new Hermeneia commentary on Romans, contains the following:

“…Jewett’s relentless application of current preoccupations flattens one of the world’s most powerful religious writings to the level of the banal and reveals how little theological passion and insight are to be found among contemporary New Testament interpreters.” (32)
