The apostle Paul lived within a swirl of controversy. False Christians—Judaizers—dogged his every step, slandering his motives, denying his apostolic authority, and seeking to overthrow his Gospel teaching. They argued their case loudly, and Paul knew that he must give the literary performance of his life. The result was the Epistle to the Romans, in which he demonstrates the truth of his Gospel—a Gospel for all men—and thereby vindicates his apostolic authority. In The Epistle to the Romans: A Gospel for All, Farley works from a literal translation of the original Greek and examines Romans section by section, explaining its meaning in contemporary language.

“Faith in Christ—expressed in Holy Baptism, manifested in a life of holiness in the Church—is all that God asks.” (Page 21)

“What Paul reminds us of is the implication that this union with Christ is also a union with Him in His death—that we have not just been baptized into Christ as our Teacher, but also baptized into His death.” (Page 78)

“To be baptized into Christ means to initiate a relationship with Him and to become His disciples (just as for Israel to be ‘baptized into Moses’” (Page 78)

“Now is the time for vigilance! For in the mortal body surge powerful desires, lusts, and appetites, which must be controlled.” (Pages 81–82)
