Series: Journey of Grace
Reformer John Calvin wrote about the book of Romans, “If a man understands Romans he has a sure road open to him to the understanding of the whole Scripture.”
John Piper has called it “the greatest letter ever written.”
J. I. Packer describes the book as “the high peak of the Bible.”
And Martin Luther, whose entire life trajectory was altered by this book, wrote, “It is worthy not only that every Christian should know it word for word, by heart, but occupy himself with it every day, as the daily bread of the soul. It can never be read or pondered too much, and the more it is dealt with the more precious it becomes, and the better it tastes.”
Those are some pretty notable endorsements!
Won't you walk through the “the most profound work in existence” (Samuel Taylor Coleridge, poet). The book of Romans, more than any other book in the Bible, lays out the gospel from beginning to end with clarity, conciseness, and conviction.
We know our world faces dark days ahead, and instability and uncertainty could cause us to cower in fear. But throughout history, it was the book of Romans that served as a catalyst to changing hearts and sparking revivals.
