Tom Wright is widely regarded as the most exciting and influential interpreter of Paul today. In this fresh look at Romans he takes a deep dive into Paul's greatest letter and invites you to explore with him the priceless treasures that lie beneath the surface.
With a special focus on Romans 8, Wright leads you on an eye-opening journey, clearly explaining the many ways in which Paul throws light on so much else that God reveals in Scripture: God the Father, Christology and the Spirit; Jesus' Messiahship, cross, resurrection and ascension; salvation, redemption and adoption; suffering and glory; holiness and hope.
Into the Heart of Romans will help you become familiar with the book of Romans in a deeper way that will also deepen your understanding and appreciation of the Gospel itself.
If you only have time to read one book on Paul this year, you can do no better than this brilliant study. It will plunge you deeply into the heart of Paul's thought and lift you out again - freshly illuminated, spiritually invigorated, and eternally thankful for all that God has done in Christ.
