Interview with Dr. Sylvia Keesmaat and Dr. Brian Walsh: Resisting Empire in the Book of Romans

This week Biblical Scholar Dr. Sylvia Keesmaat and Theologian Dr. Brian Walsh talk about what Paul was up to in the book of Romans. We visit topics like salvation and politics and how maybe those words don’t mean what we thought when it comes to the New Testament.
