It might be fair to say that Paul’s letter to the church in Rome is the most influential book in the history of the church, if not the world! Bold claim, but when you realise that God has used this text to awaken movements such as the Reformation, Wesleyan Methodism, and the move away from theological liberalism in the early-mid 20th century, it might not be bold enough.
Rome was the most powerful and influential city in the Empire and considered by many to be the centre of the known world. In about 57AD, Paul wrote to Roman Christians in a church that had experienced the turmoil that came with living under the shadow of the very seat of Roman power and authority. It was a church that was testament to saving power of God, but a church that was also fractured down racial and theological divides. In this letter Paul gives perhaps his clearest and most comprehensive articulation of the gospel of Jesus Christ so that the church in Rome might united around this truth and be a powerful force in taking it to the ends of the earth
