Overview

What does it mean to be saved? Did God choose who would be his followers, or was it a personal choice? These are just some of the questions Paul addresses in the sixteen challenging chapters of his letter to the Romans.

Reading Romans shows how some of the greatest minds in the history of the church have wrestled with, and even been changed by, Paul's words.

This book will show why, in many ways, Christian theology begins and ends with Romans.
