Romans Bible Study

One of the great pleasures in my Christian walk is to share some of the things I have discovered in my studies.  This page provides the links to the Bible Study I am currently providing a group of men on the Book of Romans.

Most preachers and small group teachers are content to deal with the texts and passages scattered throughout Romans, to the neglect of an understanding of the whole.    Most are content to provide insight without a entire study or the complete work.  Many great passages are overlooked or deliberately bypassed.  This is an attempt to dig through the entire epistle. This is my attempt to present the entirety of this monumental work of Paul.
If I may make an analogy, this study is one great meal.  It stands before you knowing well you can not eat it all in one sitting.  There are ways to accomplish the consumption of this overwhelming meal: Eat the one what you think will taste best and ingore the rest, eat a little of each course not understanding the size and compllexity of the whole, or start at the beginning savoring each bite knowing full well as long it is on the table it will wait for you to slowly, and deliberatly consume all that there is.  It may take a life time, or in this case of Romans about 35 weeks and constant learning and exploration, but it will be worth it.
