Romans: An Introduction to the World’s Greatest Book

by Dale Partridge

The epistle to the Romans is Paul’s magnum opus—his most exceptional work. It is the text of Romans that the Lord used to convert men like St. Agusitine, Martin Luther, and John Wesley.

In this episode, pastor Dale Partridge begins his journey preaching through this important New Testament book. However, it is always wise to examine the terrain prior to embarking on any journey. For that reason, Dale looks at the historical and cultural context of Romans, the author, location, recipients, and the purpose of this magnificent book.

Why Study Romans?

Why should you be willing to labor to understand this book? Why should you commit to reading and re-reading this ancient Christian text? Why should you commit to following this journey through Romans?

The answer is simple: Because when you know Romans will know God. 

Jeremiah 9:23-24 says, “Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.”

If you want to understand and know God, join pastor Dale Partridge as he preaches verse-by-verse through the book of Romans. If you want a stronger grasp of the Gospel, if you want to be able to defend what you believe and communicate clear Gospel doctrine to others, if you want to see the doctrinal diamonds and jewels of the Christians faith and the pearls that anchor a person to Jesus for eternity, join us as we journey through Romans.
