“Excellent Resource on Romans!”

(Review written for 'Romans For You Set')

Keller absolutely hits a home run with this series on Romans! The 16 chapters that make up the book of Romans contain no small amount of majestic teaching. Romans teaches on important topics such as the nature of God (and His righteousness specifically), mankind and their sinfulness, justification by faith alone, the Christian life in dealing with sin, the Holy Spirit, election, Israel and the church, civil authority, Christian liberty issues, and more. In other words, there is a lot to cover in this wonderful book of the Bible! And yet Keller so humbly, wisely, and pastorally (and I don’t use that term loosely; Keller teaches the Bible with the warmth of a shepherd caring for his sheep) works verse by verse through this glorious book. I would recommend this book for that reason alone! Another important aspect of this series of books written by Keller that I want to point out is how Keller approaches the difficult topics found in Romans. Whether it be election or homosexuality, Keller is very thorough in his treatment, and yet quite concise. He says a lot with few words! This is again where Keller’s wisdom shines forth. He does an amazing job of expositing the text in a very clear and understandable manner. He doesn’t stop there, though. He also helps the reader to apply the teaching to life. This is also where the questions at the end of the chapter are rather helpful.

I absolutely love this set of books by Keller! These are only the second (and third) volumes that I’ve read in the “God’s Word for You” series, and I have found them to be excellent guides to better understanding God’s Word, and to better applying that Word to my life. For this reason, I can’t recommend these books on Romans enough! Buy them both, and be amazed at God’s Word and the glorious Christ that they are about! Take up and read.

We're using this in our home group and it's very helpful in understanding Romans. It provides a good background, easy to understand comments, and excellent discussion questions. We're also using it with the "Good Book Guide to Romans", also by Timothy Keller, that serves as a companion for the more detailed "Romans for You".

It is good and excellent


“A thorough and meaningful book”

(Review written for 'Romans 1 - 7 For You (ebook)')

I find Timothy Keller Romans 1 to 7 a brilliant book. It gives a thorough understanding of Romans and teaches so much. it shows where believers are and their understanding of salvation and how easy it is to live life in a direction where people depend on their own righteousness rather than on the Almighty and that they have lost their way,
Romans is fantastic a great teaching letter.
I believe that the book adds to the understanding of Romans
which was used for the unification of the churches to help spread Christianity through the roman empire and to civilisation as we know it.
The book is better than a study and time should be spent going through it. Notes should be written to help mediate on its contents
Well done Timothy and the good book organisation
Keep up the work and the effort


“A must read”

(Review written for 'Romans For You Set')

I've been a Christian a long time, but these books were completely mind blowing. Paul goes through so many basic parts of Christianity that it can be easy to forget. Tim Keller puts it in a really simple explanation, even when dealing with tricky biblical doctrines. A must read for young and old Christians!


“An excellent tool”

(Review written for 'Romans For You Set')

I have always found some parts of Paul's letter difficult. Understanding the exact meaning of the text in the past has been challenging. I find these books easy to follow and a life changing explanation of the text.
Thank you Timothy (and Paul).


“Excellent unpacking of the text”

I found this book very helpful in enhancing my understanding of Romans, especially Keller's analysis of the words expressing the purpose of suffering in chapter 5. That part is so good I plan to memorise it!


“A breakthrough moment”

I have always known that Romans contains the most treasured truths of Scripture - salvation by faith alone, in Christ alone by grace alone - but have often struggled to see this shine out through the complexity of the letter. Until now. Keller unpacks even the most complex verses in the first seven chapters of Romans with a clarity which not only helps with comprehension, but also painfully points out how it is personally relevant. I am already looking forward to the second volume!

My breakthrough moment came in Keller's exposition of Chapter 7 whereby the Apostle Paul realises he is 'dead' in his sin because of his inability to keep the commandment "You shall not covet". Keller explains that this commandment tripped him up because it refers to an inward attitude of the heart, rather than an external action. He explains that coveting is an idolatrous longing for more than you have, failing to love God enough to be content, and therefore the essence of sin. This helped me to understand how none of us can keep the law perfectly and save ourselves. We all have idolatrous drives and desires and are indeed dead in our sin.

In addition to understanding that we cannot save ourselves, I have come to understand that we cannot obey by ourselves either, despite our best efforts! Keller's exploration of the rest of Chapter 7 draws out that it is only the Spirit's power that can conform us to the likeness of Jesus Christ. Through his Son God has rescued us, and through his Spirit he is changing us. "Thanks be to God - through Jesus Christ our Lord!" (Rom 7:25)
