To The Church In Rome


“This letter is truly the most important piece in the New Testament. It is purest Gospel… it seems that St. Paul, in writing this letter, wanted to compose a summary of the whole of Christian and evangelical teaching which would also be an introduction to the whole Old Testament.” ~ Martin Luther

Romans is more than a collection of proof texts for Reformed theology. It is an exposition of God’s plan to take back the world.

In this new commentary, Douglas Wilson tackles Paul’s meaty letter passage by passage, explaining Paul’s central message of the Gospel: Jesus’s death and resurrection have transformed the world. God has brought an end to the old covenant and ushered in a new covenant, joining Jews and Gentiles in one new people. And if Jesus is Lord, then Caesar is not, and thus the Gospel requires faithful Christians to defy tyrants when they usurp Jesus’s place.

If Romans hasn’t seemed so before, then certainly by the end of this commentary it will appear to you as it did to Protestant theologian Frederic Godet-as “the cathedral of Christian faith.”
