Romans, Paul’s greatest work, is placed first among his thirteen epistles in the New Testament. While the four Gospels present the words and works of Jesus Christ, Romans explores the significance of His sacrificial death. Using a question-and-answer format, Paul
records the most systematic presentation of doctrine in the Bible. Romans is more than a
book of theology; it is also a book of practical exhortation. The good news of Jesus Christ is
more than facts to be believed; it is also a life to be lived—a life of righteousness befitting
the person "justified freely by His [God’s] grace through the redemption that is in Christ
Jesus" (Ro 3:24)." - Wilkinson, B., & Boa, K. (1983). Talk thru the Bible. Nashville: T. Nelson.
