I like Schreiner for stressing my emphasis on justification as a declaration, Johnson gives a good overview of my feelings on community, Campbell appreciates what I was trying to do in Romans 5-8, and Nanos helpfully reminds folks that I really, really was Jewish. Some good stuff here, we should all go out for schwarma some time.
