There is perhaps a no more beautiful single chapter in all of Scripture than chapter 8 of Romans. From declaring our complete lack of condemnation in Christ to the assurance that nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ, Paul’s proclamation of the gospel is never clearer.
In the book How the Gospel Brings Us All the Way Home, seminary professor and pastor Derek Thomas takes us on a journey through that glorious chapter, detailing what Christ’s sacrifice means for us now and for our lives to come. Thomas does a great job of bringing together other passages in Scripture to exposit and support the almost inconceivable truths of the gospel in Romans 8.
In the expanse of redemptive history, Thomas explains how vast the problem of sin is and yet how much more is the plan that God has made to reconcile his people to himself, ultimately for his own glory. “Not until sin is eradicated will creation yield the glory that God deserves.”
No matter how extensive your knowledge of this indelible chapter is, I am sure that this book will once again inspire and bless you by its presentation of the truth of God and the assurance of his grace.
