Teaching Romans, Vol. 1 is divided into three sections, the first containing introductory materials on the text of Romans. Sections two and three work systematically through a suggested preaching or Bible study series on Romans 1-8. Preaching outlines and Bible study questions are included for each passage.
Personally, I found the structure of each chapter extremely helpful. After analyzing and explaining the meaning of the text, the author moves from text to teaching. In this section the basic theme and aim are clarified and pointers to application made. This is perhaps what lifts these volumes beyond the limits of a normal commentary. It is also what Bible teachers and study leaders will find most attractive about them. Applying the ancient text to the modern listener isn't always an easy thing to do. Under pressure to seem practical and relevant, preachers are often tempted to the sin of 'false application' by which the instructions they give are forced onto, rather than derived out of, the text.
