Chapter Summary

This chapter argues an approach to interpreting Paul's letters that emphasizes closely connected points: interpretation or reading is not fully determinate even at the level of word division, punctuation, or textual arrangement, and historical interpretation should focus on readers and reading rather than on some metaphysical conception of the author. These points are not just intensively discussed and generally accepted principles in fields of literary study and philosophy. The discussion in A Rereading of Romans attempts to illuminate the kind of interpretive habits and skills that various ancient readers might have employed. Anderson's way of posing the issue of Paul's rhetorical knowledge makes it difficult to deal with the seeming anomaly of the last two sentences.

Keywords: Greek philosophy; Paul's rhetorical education; Rereading of Romans
