Combining thoughtful interpretation with contemporary insight for daily living, James Montgomery Boice explains the meaning of the text and relates the text's concerns to the church, Christianity, and the world in which we live. Whether used for devotions, preaching, or teaching, this authoritative and thought-provoking series will appeal to a wide range of readers, from serious Bible students to interested laypersons. "Christianity has been the most powerful, transforming force in human history," says Boice. "And the book of Romans is the most basic, most comprehensive statement of true Christianity." This third volume in the Romans collection develops a Christian view of history.
"No religion is stronger than its god," says James Montgomery Boice, "and in the case of Christianity, no Christians have ever been stronger than their knowledge of the true God and their desire to obey and glorify him."

Boice discusses: "The Potter and the Clay" (9: 19-21) "Two Kinds of Righteousness" (10: 3) "Heart Belief and Mouth Confession" (10: 10) "The Outstretched Hands of God" (10: 21) "A Future for God's Ancient People" (11: 23-24) This expositional commentary on one of the Bible's most popular books combines careful scholarship and clear communication in a verse-by-verse and section-by-section reading of the biblical text.
