Description:

Paul's epistle to the Romans has been influential at critical moments in church history: The conversion of Augustine in the early church; Influencing Martin Luther and John Calvin during the Protestant Reformation; Changing the lives of George Whitfield and John Wesley in the evangelical revival of the eighteenth century. But it is not only those who have become leaders in the church who have been affected by the book of Romans; ordinary Christians have lived transformed lives as a result - up to the present day. One reason is because in Romans, Paul clearly sets out a theological framework for us to understand the Christian faith. It is a comprehensive description of the way that God offers salvation to humankind - and it is 'Good News'.

CLC Book Reviews

"It was no accident that the Reformers, Luther and Calvin, each wrote the first two of their many Bible commentaries on Romans and the Psalms. The Church today evidences its great need of massive doses of the truths of Romans. R C Sproul and Christian Focus have done us a great favour in making the content of Romans more available to a wider audience. You will find this book a great tonic for your soul."

David Cook, Retired Principal, Sydney Missionary and Bible College, Sydney, Australia

"Sproul has given the reader an excellent, easy to read, six-page summary of the epistle that whets the appetite to read on... This book reflects Sproul's gift of making the Bible easier to understand for laymen and teachers."
