Riassunto: One of the best-kept secrets of the modern scholarly world and arguably one of the most overlooked but brilliant New Testament interpreters of the twentieth century, Adolf Schlatter was a prolific, controversial, individualistic, iconoclastic, and theological luminary whose academic career spanned nearly six decades. In the present climate of renewed interest in Paul and his "theology," the appearance of a translation of "Gottes Gerechtigkeit," Schlatter's profound and controversial commentary on Paul's letter to the Romans, is both fitting and timely. Schlatter's unapologetically theological understanding of Romans met with opposition from many sides during its day, and it will surely provoke controversy today as well. It is destined to raise new questions for any reader who takes seriously the writings and theology of Paul.
"This excellent translation of Adolf Schlatter's "Gottes Gerechtigkeit" renders an invaluable service to biblical studies, especially to all those involved in Pauline studies. Peter Stuhlmacher's foreword gives a helpful introduction to Schlatter, who remains to many an unfamiliar figure despite his extensive writings and profound thought. Schlatter's representation of the meaning of Paul's letter to the Romans will challenge, stimulate, and perhaps even irritate as it brings to light fresh ideas concerning the depths of Paul's theology. Schlatter's comprehensive and coherent treatment of Paul's understanding of God, Christ, righteousness, humanity, sin, the law, grace, eschatology, and the Christian life is a treasure of scholarly insights with crucial relevance to the reality of Christian faith and practice."
" Marion L. Soards, Professor of New Testament,Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary

Schlatter published Gottes Gerechtigkeit, the basis for Romans: The Righteousness of God, when he was more than eighty.
