Staff member Sparky recommends a book he recently read, An Unjust God?: A Christian Theology of Israel in Light of Romans 9-11,  by Jacques Ellul, published this summer by Wipf & Stock Publishers.

According to Sparky:

“Quite simply the best theological treatment of Paul’s argument made in Romans 9-11. It is also the first English translation. A worthy read, though it is a little more demanding as Ellul always is. But worth it.”
