  • The Book of Romans

The letter of Paul to the Romans is widely regarded as one of the most influential writings of all time. It is pure gold from beginning to end. This letter has shaped the teachings of leaders like St. Augustine, Martin Luther, John Wesley and Karl Barth. It deals with the most important issue of humanity – how we are made right before a holy God. Studying Romans will transform your thinking and convict your heart as we discover the freshness of the gospel for our lives.
