The book of Romans has rightly been called "the Constitution of Christianity." In this one letter are recorded the doctrines of justification, sanctification, divine condemnation, divine election, the perseverance of the saints, total depravity, the last judgment, the fall of man, the revelation of God in nature, and so much more. In his commentary, Dr. Kroll indicates that the letter to the church in Rome was Paul?s way of depositing a handbook of Christian doctrine into the capital of the Roman Empire. No other writing has more powerfully confronted the mind of man with the mind of God. The book of Romans brought St. Augustine, Martin Luther, John Wesley, and John Calvin to an understanding of man?s need for Christ?s righteousness. Every argument that man can muster against the claims of God is thoroughly demolished with unanswerable logic by the apostle Paul. Sometimes these arguments seem complex and beyond our understanding. Dr. Kroll, in the clarity and succinctness he is known for on his radio broadcasts, breaks down Paul?s arguments into clear, relevant points and helps the reader apply them to his or her own relationship with Christ. Study questions at the end of each chapter are designed to further clarify the teachings of Paul to individuals and Bible study groups.

In May 1738, John Wesley unwilling attended a meeting where someone was reading Luther's Preface to the Epistle to the Romans. Wesley wrote in his journal, "I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone, for my salvation; and an assurance was given me that he had taken my sin away, even mine, and saved me from the law of sin and death. " This event, more than any other, launched the evangelical revival of the eighteenth century.
John Calvin, he great Swiss reformed and theologian said of this epistle, "When anyone understands the Epistle, he has passage opened to him to the understanding of the whole Scriptures."

It has led men and woman from every nation and every walk of life to evaluate their lives and trust in God's grace. Studying Romans can have the same effect on you as it has had on other readers if your heart is prepared for change.
