Combining the biblical content of a commentary with the life applications of a Bible study, bestselling authors Bruce Bickel and Stan Jantz distill important Bible truths in userfriendly portions and communicate them with amazing clarity. Pauls letter to the church in Rome is his clearest explanation and application of the Good News about Christ... the power of God at work.
This fresh new study of Romans assures readers that the gospel is Gods answer to every human need and helps them catch Pauls burning desire to spread the message of salvation. Thirteen chapters blend helpful background information with uptodate applications of the gospel to everyday life. Individual readers and groups will appreciate the openended, thoughtprovoking questions following each chapter.
The book takes Romans apart chapter by chapter with eye catching at-a-glace panels to summarise the important themes such as Romans as a field manual for survival as a Christian, and information including a time line of Pauls journeys and letters.
The book opens with a note from the author giving sound advice on how to study alone and on studying in a group. This is followed by a short biography of Paul and an account of his conversion.
The first chapter covers questions of who wrote Romans, why, and what its all about. Subsequent chapters are followed with relevant, though provoking questions. The last chapter invites you to dig deeper with pointers to more help, information, study and life application.
