Comforts from Romans [eBook]
Celebrating the Gospel One Day at a Time
Although we may go to bed at night believing the gospel, we wake up every morning needing to hear it again. Yet most of us don’t have time to dive into a lengthy commentary on the book of Romans—the book Paul wrote in order to showcase the glorious riches of the gospel.
Thankfully seasoned counselor and author Elyse Fitzpatrick makes the message of Romans readily accessible in 31 devotional-like chapters on what Martin Luther called “the very purest Gospel.” Perfect for even the busiest of us, Elyse helps us grasp the practicality of the gospel message and experience the deep comforts articulated in the book of Romans.
Elyse M. Fitzpatrick (MA, Trinity Theological Seminary) is a member of the National Association of Nouthetic Counselors, a retreat and conference speaker, and the head of Women Helping Women Ministries. Fitzpatrick has authored over fifteen books, including Because He Loves Me.
“There is nothing soft or sentimental about the comfort offered in this book. Instead, it opens our eyes to see the miseries of our self-absorption and self-effort salvation and then applies the substantive, solid comfort of abundant grace, imputed righteousness, purchased peace, blessed wretchedness, no condemnation, no separation.”
—Nancy Guthrie, Bible Teacher; author, Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament Bible study series
“Elyse’s gratitude for God’s grace spills out onto every page of this book as she opens the pages of her life and comforts us with the comfort she has received from God’s Word. Her theological precision and her joy in God’s extravagant love instructed my mind and thrilled my heart.”
—Susan Hunt, former Director of Women’s Ministries, PCA; author, Women’s Ministry in the Local Church
“Martin Luther called Paul’s letter to the Romans ‘the most important piece in the New Testament…It is purest Gospel.’ My dear friend Elyse captures the purity and power of Romans here. In bite-size, digestible chunks she devotionally and practically unpacks the ‘now-power’ of the Gospel, showing that the gospel doesn’t simply free us from the past and free us for the future. It also frees us in the present from being enslaved to things like fear, insecurity, anger, self-reliance, bitterness, entitlement, and insignificance. Being both a seasoned counselor and a top-notch theologian, I can’t think of anyone better to comfort sinners through Romans than Elyse!”
