Most scholars agree that St. Paul’s letter to the Romans is his most important work. But they often disagree about what it means. In fact, Martin Luther’s misreading of Romans was a significant factor in launching the Protestant Reformation. In this study, Scott Hahn shows how St. Paul’s proclamation of the Catholic Gospel emerges from paying careful attention to Paul’s original audience and his use of the Old Testament.

Ed Becker –
I got this many years ago when it was a collection of cassette tapes! Now I’m getting it again on CD because it is so excellent. It really changed my whole understanding of the book of Romans and gave me a much greater appreciation for the Church. When I first got this, I had an anti-Catholic protestant roomate who was constantly trying to use the book of Romans against my Catholic faith. This is an excellent resource for understanding what Paul is really talking about when he uses terms like “works of the Law” and “the righteousness of God” and “all have fallen short…”. He puts these statements in context and shows very clearly how Paul uses such phrases and what they mean in context of the letter. This is a great resource for understanding, defending, and spreading the faith! – Thanks Dr. Hahn!
