In this series of twenty-four beautifully crafted sermons, first delivered to the congregation of Boston's historic Park Street Church in 1942, Harold John Ockenga systematically works his way through Paul's letter to the Romans—explaining its key theological teachings, wrestling with some of its most difficult passages and applying those teachings to the daily lives of his parishioners.

With the skill of an artist, Ockenga challenges each of us to conform our lives and our thinking to the truth of God's Word and with the insights of a spiritual physician, he points the way to God's amazing mercy and grace. For those who yearn to grow in their understanding and experience of the Christian faith, this is the book for you.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“A leading statesman of neo-evangelicalism, Harold John Ockenga saw himself first and foremost as a pastor and preacher of the gospel of Jesus Christ. For almost 33 years (1936-1969), Ockenga led Park Street Church of Boston, a flagship evangelical church. In this volume, first issued in 1942, the young, articulate preacher opened up Romans to his congregation and to a wider New England audience by radio. Through a series of 24 sermons he extolled and evinced his deep predilection for expository preaching because it made congregations ‘conversant with the doctrines, precepts, and practices of New Testament Christianity.’ His immense depth of preparation, clarity of presentation, and conviction still speaks to us today by challenging us to take our next step of faith.”

John M. Adams, Pastor, First Baptist Church, Easley, South Carolina
