Reading Romans with Eastern Eyes

Reading Romans with Eastern Eyes

Reading Romans with Eastern Eyes

According to Jackson W., some traditional East Asian cultural values are closer to those of the first-century biblical world than common Western cultural values. In this work Jackson demonstrates how paying attention to East Asian culture provides a helpful lens for interpreting Paul's most complex letter, and we see how honor and shame shape so much of Paul's message and mission.
