Overview

Simon Ponsonby presents 52 inspirational chapters, bringing Paul's greatest letter to life, and blending careful theological and historical detail with illuminating application. Romans is intellectually and theologically massive. Augustine of Hippo, the great architect of Western theology, was converted while reading Romans. Martin Luther's encounter with the text led to a personal revival and the European Reformation, and Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones refused to teach on Romans for decades until he had grappled with and understood chapter 6. This passionate, illuminating devotional will prove a potent means of grace and growth.
