Many Christians, pastors, and laymen alike, consider the Apostle Paul's Epistle to the Romans the richest lode of theological truth ever written. Its themes of justification by faith, abounding grace, freedom from sin and from the old nature, living sacrifices, God's sovereignty/man's responsibility, and much else have both challenged and nourished followers of Christ for centuries. A systematic theology, a practical presentation of the Christian life, an apologetic for the gospel of Jesus Christ—the Book of Romans is all this and more. In this helpful commentary, Pastor R. Kent Hughes brings all his talent for clear exposition, pointed application, and literary expression to bear on this power-packed Pauline letter.
