Paul’s Letter to the Romans

Paul’s letter to the Romans has been enormously influential in the development of Christian faith, theological reflection, and practice. It has shaped and formed the thought of some of the Christian church’s most significant figures including Saint Augustine, Martin Luther, John Wesley, and Karl Barth. As you begin your journey through this powerful, historic letter, we offer a friendly word of warning: those who have gone before you have rarely emerged from their own journeys through Romans unchanged. We hope that you, too, will come out of this study “transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Romans 12:2).
