SPECIAL REFORMATION EDITION

A unique opportunity that only happens once every 500 years! This revised and updated edition of Dr. Calvin Roetzel’s study of Paul’s letter to the Romans includes a opening session in observance of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, 1517-2017. Introduce your congregation and study participants to the role that Paul’s letter played in the life of seminal reformer Martin Luther and the events surrounding the Reformation. Discover why Romans is called "the most inspirational letter ever written." Appreciate why these words to the Church in ancient Rome echo still with energy and power. Encounter theology in the making as Paul wrestles with enduring issues: justification and grace, sin and salvation, a vision of unity, and the faithfulness of God—the same issues that believers, old and new, have contemplated throughout the history of the church.
