    Paul’s epistle to the Romans changed the lives of many great Christian thinkers, including Augustine, Martin Luther, John Wesley and Karl Barth. However, while Romans has been among the most influential books of the New Testament, it has also been the subject of some of the church’s most heated debates. What is justification by faith? What is the relationship between law and grace? What is God’s ultimate purpose for Israel? Without losing sight of the simplicity of the gospel, F. F. Bruce guides us along the difficult but rewarding paths of this great letter.

    The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series.
