Romans | "Listen Up" Bible Study
The uniqueness of the Listen Up! Bible Study series:
God's word is alive, with something new to say to all of us.
That's why the Listen Up! Bible Study series does not simply teach information about the Bible. It listens to God speak.
In these Bible studies, you will be encouraged to listen: listen to the Bible, listen to your own questions and responses, and listen to the honest sharing among participants in your study group. In that mix of biblical text, personal engagement, and honest speaking and listening, God's word may be heard, speaking challenge and comfort. (Browse the collection of Listen Up! Bible studies.)
Romans Listen Up! Bible Study
Paul's letter to the Romans is the first of Paul's letters in the New Testament canon, the longest of them with 16 chapters, and -- in many respects -- the most significant.
The letter is written to a congregation Paul hasn't met but hopes to visit. For this reason, Romans is Paul's introduction to his mature thinking about themes of the Christian story: sin and grace, salvation, election, and the trustworthiness of the promises of God. Paul also writes at length about the implications of the Gospel for Christian congregations.
When we study Romans, we encounter together the still-speaking God addressing our time and context. Don't be surprised if you deepen your faith in the process.
The study of Romans is divided into two parts (two booklets):
- Romans Part 1 is a study of Romans 1-8;
- Romans Part 2 is a study of Romans 9-17.
Leader's Guide included in this workbook.
