What is ultimately at stake in alternative readings of Romans is the universal nature of the human predicament and the manner in which Christ saves. It is the fundamental nature of the Gospel that is under contention in this key letter.
The overall theme guiding the effort is the practical nature of salvation in Christ as it addresses the immediate issue of a Subject grounded in deception and oriented to death. New life in Christ is not simply a promise for the future but it is the ontological ground of an alternative Subject no longer oriented to death through deception but one who has found new life in the Spirit.
Issues of the extent of salvation, the role of the Church in relation to the state, women in leadership, and the nature of human transformation are also covered.
