Aspiring To Righteousness: A Study of Romans

The early church came of age during the reign of the Roman empire. As the cultural and political center of the world, it is no surprise that Paul was interested in equipping the believers in Rome. In one of the most well-known books of the Bible, Paul addresses the great controversy of the early church – is faith enough? Two thousand years later, we are still wrestling with this question. What should the Roman believers think about the law? Are there required behaviors for them to be considered people of God? Paul addresses these questions by showing the path to righteousness, meeting counter-arguments head-on, and inspiring us all toward a life of faith.
