Course Description

Our culture does not encourage thoughtful reflection on truth. Yet living the gospel in a postmodern culture demands that Christians understand and internalize the truth about God and his plan for the world. Paul's letter to the Romans remains one of the most important expressions of Christian truth ever written. Its message forces us to evaluate who we are, who God is, and what our place in this world ought to be.

The Romans course, taught by Douglas Moo, brings the meaning of Paul's great letter into the twenty-first century. Moo comments on the text itself, explores issues in Paul's culture and in ours that help us understand the ultimate meaning of each passage, and suggests ways in which the eternal theology of Romans can be understood and lived out in our modern culture.

By completing this course, you’ll gain:

  • familiarity with the overarching organization and literary flow of Romans
  • insights into the passage-by-passage meaning of Paul’s letter to the Romans
  • a greater grasp of the book’s application for Christians today
  • confidence in your growing knowledge through personalized review sessions and unit assessments
