ROMANS [in a sentence]

It is very clear that Tom Wright knows the Apostle Paul. This is evidenced in that he writes obscenely long sentences that are tough to follow, just like Paul. Here is a prime example [from pg 180 in "Justification"]:
Romans is a book about God, and the primary thing it is saying about God is that he is the God of faithful, just, covenant love, that this has been unveiled in the gospel message about Jesus, the crucified and risen Messiah, and that through this gospel message, and the radical unveiling of God's covenant justice and faithfulness, God's saving power is going out into the world, and will not rest until creation itself is set free from its slavery to corruption and decay and shares the liberty of the glory of God's children.
