I am anticipating great things and lots and lots of fruit as we study the book of Romans. That truth alone that we are given "a
righteousness from God" ought to cause us to fall on our faces and worship. I am reading a book right now by Jeanne Guyon(likely one of the most influential 16th century Christian writers), entitled "Experiencing the Depths of Jesus Christ." She drives home the point throughout her book that we can only be righteous as we plug into the RIGHTEOUS ONE. MHR, I believe this study of the book of Romans is going to be quite the ride...I can't wait. I'm praying for you daily as you prepare for each Sat.eve/Sunday a.m. service :-)

Preach it, brother. I started Romans recently and love it. I've finished the first five chapters. Feel free to check out what I've done: www.pontiacbible.org. Will you make your sermons available?

Piper's material on Romans is outstanding.

Hello Bill and Jan,

I've been following you guys since we saw each other last July in MI. Thanks for the great posts and I'm looking forward to reading about the upcoming series in Romans. Would love to listen to it some time.....Hope you both are well and we are still under ice in the Ozarks. Hope to see you again in the future. Miss you both. Dave and Care


There are few who dare preach such bold truths, and even fewer who do so with love. Shannon and I have you and your wife in our prayers now more than ever, for you will need it, preaching through Romans. I am convinced there is no more scary book in the Bible to Satan, than Romans.
May God bless you!


Thanks for all the encouragement and prayers as I begin this imposing trip up spiritual "Mt. Everest." And a word to Brian Bill...some of my motivation to preach through Romans came via Ray Pritchard's web site link to your sermons. Thanks for paving the way. I've waited 21 years at FBC before preaching through Romans. And to Zach...I can already tell that Satan isn't thrilled with the powerful message of Romans. Keep those prayers coming.

Congrats on beginning your journey through Romans. I first preached through it back in the early 90s. Now I'm working through it again in my weekly email sermons and discovering many truths that I didn't see the first time around. I am glad you are climbing this "Mt. Everest of Scripture" because Romans will be an enormous blessing you and to your congregation. If every pastor in America did as you are doing, our churches would be transformed.

Ray Pritchard


Thanks Ray! I'm thrilled that you've encouraged me and many other pastors to preach through the book of Romans. This book is foundational to the Christian faith and is desperately needed in this "lightweight" spiritual climate in the U.S. I'm grateful for the resources you've provided, as well as those by Brian Bill. Clearly, it's time for...Romans!
