Paul’s epistle to the Romans has been influential at critical moments in church history and with church leaders throughout the ages. Men like Augustine, Martin Luther, John Calvin, George Whitefield and John Wesley point to the book of Romans as having a special part in their conversion. But it is not only church leaders who have been affected by the book of Romans. Countless, ordinary Christians have also lived transformed lives as a result of reading Romans, right on up to the present day.
Why is this? One reason is because in Romans, Paul clearly sets out a theological framework for us to understand the Christian faith. In this great book, we are given a comprehensive description of the way that God offers salvation to humankind – and it is ‘Good News’ of the highest order.

The Church today evidences its great need of massive doses of the truths of Romans. R C Sproul and Christian Focus have done us a great favour in making the content of Romans more available to a wider audience. You will find this book a great tonic for your soul.” ~David Cook, Principal, Sydney Missionary and Bible College

“I used The Gospel Of God extensively when preparing for my year-long sermon series on Romans. Own it. Read it. Return to it often.” ~ Daniel Montgomery, Senior Pastor, Sojourn Community Church, Louisville, Kentucky
