What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Praise for If God Is For Us

If the Bible were a mountain range, it is said, Romans 8 would be its highest peak. I can

say after reading this study that Trillia Newbell is a sure-footed mountain guide that will

help you climb this great passage and get some of its best breathtaking views of God and

our salvation in Christ. I highly recommend this volume!

Tim Keller, cofounder, Redeemer City to City

So often we encounter the message of Romans 8 in fragments, its best-known verses

lifted from their context and lightly quoted to suit the need of the moment. With a

careful hand, Trillia Newbell mends our fragmented reading by guiding us into the text,

orienting this crucial chapter within the book of Romans as a whole, and tracing its cohesive

message from start to finish. If God Is For Us is six weeks well spent for any earnest

student of the Bible.

Jen Wilkin, author and Bible teacher

Trillia Newbell is a gift to the church. I can think of few people whose lives more authentically

display the work of God and the fruit of His Spirit. This study on the eighth

chapter of Romans will bless, encourage, and challenge you to grow further into Christ.

Within these pages, Trillia serves as a faithful guide to help you better understand and

apply God’s Word to your life.

Russell Moore, President, The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the

Southern Baptist Convention

Like a delicious meal, Romans 8 is packed with truths to be savored as they are slowly

enjoyed. If God Is For Us helps us to slow down and ponder the riches in this beloved chapter

line by line, one verse at a time. Trillia Newbell’s warmth and wisdom will guide and

encourage you with truths that will refresh and revive your soul.

Melissa Kruger, director of women’s content for The Gospel Coalition and author of

In All Things

Some in the church eschew discipleship and study because they “don’t have time” or

“don’t know how.” Written like a letter from a good friend, If God Is For Us offers a deep

and digestible look into Paul’s intimate writings in Romans 8. Trillia explores in detail

the radical, existential transformation made possible through Christ. If you’ve hesitated

on Romans because it seems overwhelming, If God Is For Us is an excellent doorway to

understanding, living, and sharing the “exchanged life.”

K. A. Ellis, Cannada Fellow for World Christianity at Reformed Theological Seminary

I’m so thankful for Trillia and this thorough study on Romans 8. Trillia does a beautiful

job encouraging us to be in God’s Word without leaving us to do it alone. Her insights

and personal illustrations make studying this foundational chapter of Scripture accessible

and inviting. I encourage you to get a group of friends together and pick up a copy of If

God Is For Us.

Kelly Minter, Bible teacher and author of No Other Gods

If God Is For Us is an extraordinary study and one I wholeheartedly recommend. I have

read and studied Romans 8 at length, as it is one of my favorite chapters in the Bible,

and God has used it to free me and transform me. And yet, through this six-week study

with Trillia, God opened the eyes of my heart anew to the beauty of the gospel, and

deepened my gratitude for the unwavering love of our Father and the gift of His precious

Son, Jesus.

Jeannie Cunnion, author of Mom Set Free

Trillia Newbell’s passion for God’s Word leaps off each page of this exceptional 6-week

study. Wisely, she sweeps through the early chapters of Romans first, preparing our

hearts for a deeply satisfying walk through Romans 8, verse by powerful verse. Her scholarship

is impressive, and her questions are probing. Above all, her honest confessions and

personal discoveries bring home the life-altering truths contained in this beloved chapter

of the Bible. A wonderful resource!

Liz Curtis Higgs, bestselling author of Bad Girls of the Bible

Trillia Newbell’s If God Is For Us is an insightful, accessible, and in-depth study of one

of the Bible’s most treasured chapters. It offers a fresh and practical Bible study methodology

that inspires the reader to want more. In a season when women are searching

for strong theological representation and quality biblically based resources, Trillia has

certainly delivered.

Missie Branch, Asst. Dean of Students to Women, Southeastern Baptist Theological


Trillia’s study encourages us to mine for deep treasure in one of the most gospel-rich

chapters of the Bible, as she seamlessly shifts between deep inductive study and thoughtful

devotional reading. This curriculum will be a blessing to many!

Emily Jensen and Laura Wifler, cofounders of Risen Motherhood

Depending on your relationship with Scripture, studying a chapter for an entire month

can seem boring, but this study guide highlights the importance of patient study over

broad study. Yet, its focused style is far from intimidating to those who have an avoidant

posture toward learning. Trillia Newbell offers a highly accessible and introspective study

into Romans 8, which rightfully seeks to lead us to the main elements of the text and

also gives us a chance to see ourselves more clearly. In this study, we see the faithfulness

of God, the grace offered in repentance, and the reality of suffering for Christ’s sake, if

we are in the Lord. Newbell reminds us that, “Because we are Christ’s, we keep on fighting

sin, knowing that grace is available when we fail.”

Christina H. Edmondson, Dean for Intercultural Student Development at Calvin


It’s easy to think that believers are somehow immune to the shackles that once bound

our souls. The truth is, like the Israelites who questioned God’s goodness in the desert,

quickly forgetting how awful slavery really was, we sometimes slip into believing that

maybe God isn’t really for us. In our pain, our confusion, our flat-out tiredness, our

Bibles gather dust and our half-hearted prayers get drowned out in the lure “of just one

more episode” or “only five more minutes of scrolling.” Two hours later, we are still tired

and maybe even a little jaded that life has become a series of just getting through the days,

hoping for something to give us the spark we once had. Of course, we wouldn’t dare say

these things out loud. The truth is, under the surface of things, we’re desperate for revival.

We could all use some resurrection, some life out of the daily deadness we so often

feel. In If God Is For Us, Trillia Newbell takes us into Romans 8 and asks us to let God

remind us of who He is, who we are to Him, and where life is found and hope is more

than a trite offering.If you’re in a season where life feels like it just keeps coming against

you, like you can’t get a break, If God Is For Us is the study your soul is longing for.
