I was looking for some further Biblical studies on the book of Romans and certainly found it here! This is a great book. It breaks down chapter per chapter and verse per verse for easy reading and understanding. There are some terrific quotes from some of the great theological minds as well. I would highly recommend this book for anyone from beginner to advanced levels. I found soul purpose upon reading and studying along.
