The Book of Romans has long been seen as one of the clearest and most concise explanations of the Gospel. Throughout the book, vast and lofty theological concepts are described and illuminated in an approachable way, demonstrating that the good news of Jesus is for all people. Romans was written to a community of believers as an encouragement—a springboard into a life spent in pursuit of the beauty and peace God desires for humanity.
In addition to outlining what we believe, Romans is also quick to express the importance of how our beliefs are lived out in our daily lives. This is a book of unity and solidarity. In the midst of our diversity—of experience, perspective, and background—we are joined together in our identity as children of God. The miracle of Jesus is for each and every one of us, and we are all of us in need of the love and grace of our Creator. The Book of Romans urges us to set our differences aside in favor of partnering together in God’s vision of restoration for the world.
