Study Overview:  This study works through the book of Romans, one of the most profound books of the Bible, written by the Apostle Paul around A.D. 57 while he was in Corinth near the end of his third missionary journey, before he traveled to Jerusalem.  This book gave birth to the Reformation and the Protestant church when Martin Luther discovered in it the truth of justification by faith.  John Wesley's heart was "strangely warmed" when he heard Luther's preface to this episle in his commentary.

Using Robert Benson's commentary book to guide us through this most powerful books of the Bible our hope is that your heart will be "strangely warmed," that you to will find a Reformation experience that turns your life upside down and changes your inner world so, that it changes how you live your outer world.
