“Christianity has been the most powerful, transforming force in human history,” says James Montgomery Boice, “and the book of Romans is the most basic, most comprehensive statement of true Christianity.”

Volume 1, Justification by Faith, discusses the full impact of justification by faith alone. Boice uses stories and hymns to present the thoughts of Paul in a poetic form and provides word studies based on the Greek text to add meaning and enrichment to Paul’s words. Chapters and verses discussed include:

• “A Reputation Worth Having” (1:8)

• “Not Ashamed” (1:16–17)

• “Lifting the Lid on Hell” (1:29–31)

• “Not Hearers Only, but Doers” (2:12–15)

• “Amazing Grace” (3:22–24)

• “The Steps of Faith” (4:12)
