Arguably no other piece of writing has had the impact that the book of Romans has had on history. Many great theological minds were converted after reading the book, hearing it preached or reading a commentary on it.

N.T wright says about the Book of Romans:

 It dwarfs most of his other writings, an Alpine peak towering over hills and villages. Not all onlookers have viewed it in the same light or from the same angle, and their snapshots and paintings of it are sometimes remarkably unalike. Not all climbers have taken the same route up its sheer sides, and there is frequent disagreement on the best approach. What nobody doubts is that we are here dealing with a work of massive substance, presenting a formidable intellectual challenge while offering a breathtaking theological and spiritual vision.

 

With this in mind we are going to look at Romans over the month of May. The instructions for following this reading plan are below. Please give this reading plan to anyone who would profit from it.

Read the Bible passage that is assigned for the day of month (e.g. read 1 on the 1st of May and 15 on the 15th of May) and meditate on what hits you from the passage about God or yourself. Pray in response to what you have learnt and then pray the prayer below that is based on Philippians 1:9-11 for yourself and two other people at Resolved.
