Overview

CAN YOU HANDLE THE TRUTH?

EVERY HUMAN BEING ON EARTH IS SEEKING FOR TRUTH AND MEANING - something so incredibly profound that their life will be changed forever. This commentary by Woodrow Kroll has the answer to your search. The book of Romans removes all of our alibis, all our pretenses, all or attempts at self-justification and proves that the righteousness of Christ is our only hope of redemption.

In the summer of A.D. 386, Augustine studied the boo of Romans and found the answer to his question: How can I be righteous before a holy God? At the moment Augustine came to Christ and his writings still impact the Church today.

In November 1515, a professor of sacred theology at the University of Wittenberg, Germany, began to expound this epistle to his students. As he prepared his lectures, he became more and more convinced that "the just shall live by faith". Through the reading of this epistle, Martin Luther was born into the family of God.

In May 1738, John Wesley unwilling attended a meeting where someone was reading Luther's Preface to the Epistle to the Romans. Wesley wrote in his journal, "I felt I did trust in Christ,Christ alone, for my salvation; and an assurance was given me that he had taken my sin away, even mine, and saved me from the law of sin and death. " This event, more than any other, launched the evangelical revival of the eighteenth century.

John Calvin, he great Swiss reformed and theologian said of this epistle, "When anyone understands the Epistle, he has passage opened to him to the understanding of the whole Scriptures."

No book of Scriptures has played a more significant role in the history of the Church. It has led men and woman from every nation and every walk of life to evaluate their lives and trust in God's grace. Studying Romans can have the same effect on you as it has had on other readers if your heart is prepared for change.
