In this SGC course, Romans, you will study the Apostle Paul’s greatest masterpiece. No book of the Bible has been so instrumental in changing lives and in impacting the church as this epistle. Many of the great revivals and reformation in the history of the church have been directly related to this profound book.
In 386 A.D., St. Augustine’s life was completely transformed after reading a passage from the book of Romans. He went on to become one of the church’s most outstanding leaders and theologians.
A thousand years after Augustine, Martin Luther wrote, “Night and day I pondered Romans until I grasped the truth. I felt myself to be reborn. This passage of Paul became to me a gateway to heaven.”
Several centuries later a spiritually unassured John Wesley attended a Moravian prayer meeting where the book of Romans was being taught. “I felt my heart strangely warmed”, he later testified. “I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone for my salvation; and an assurance was given me that He had taken away my sins, even mine….” John Wesley’s conversion led to great spiritual awakening in England and America.
Your life and spiritual leadership will be greatly impacted by studying the great doctrinal themes of Romans.
