Right in Romans : Studies in the Epistle of Paul to the Romans
A careful study of Church History discloses that practically every great revival and reform movement has been kindled and kept burning by a return to the Scriptures, a rediscovery of the Word of God, an opening of the draughts of inspiration from on high; it furthermore reveals that in this indispensable return to the Bible, the Book of Romans has again and again come into a place of prominence. We can readily see why this should be so, because in this letter, as perhaps in no other, we find a full and exhaustive treatment of such basic questions as the reality of sin, the need of redemption, justification by faith, the efficacy of the atoning death of Jesus, regeneration, the new life in the Spirit, and the future glorification of believers. A return to a close study of Romans as a reservoir of Christian doctrine is desperately needed in our day; for if there is one thing above all others that characterizes much of our current weak-tea variety of Christianity, it is an inadequate conception of the awfulness of sin and of the utter inability of man to find salvation apart from the redeeming grace of God in Christ.
