About the Book

The book of Romans, written by Paul during his third missionary journey, covers a lot of important theological ground both for the Roman believers to whom he was writing and for us today. The book is broken into four major parts: an explanation of justification (starting in chapter 1), an explanation of sanctification (starting in chapter 5), a look at Israel and the church (starting in chapter 9), and practical application of the theological groundwork set in the earlier chapters (starting in chapter 12).
