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 fourth volume in the Romans collection covers sixty lessons on such topics as church and state, the law of love, and Christian liberty.
"It is changed people who change everything," says James Montgomery Boice. "If you have been called to faith in Jesus Christ, you are part of the radically changed community, the new humanity."

Calling all Christians to renew their understanding of the great doctrines of Christianity, Boice shows how we can live by these teachings even today. He discusses: "God's Good, Pleasing, and Perfect Will" (12: 2) "Right Living at All Times" (12: 17) "To Each His Due" (13: 6-7) "Understanding the Times" (13: 11) "Check-off Points for a Good Church" (15: 14) "The Full Measure of God's Blessing" (15: 29) 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.
