Review of Romans 1-7 For You by Tim Keller

Romans 1-7 for You by Timothy J. Keller

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love the “For You” series. I’ve read a lot of the books in this series, and have found they are helpful for preparing to lead Bible studies, small group discussions, preaching, or just generally learning more about a particular book of the Bible. Best of all, they are not so academically dense that I can’t put them in the hands of a layperson as a resource for teaching or understanding.

Each chapter covers a block of scripture verses, typically about half of the biblical chapter. And each of those chapters is divided into a part one and part two, with questions for reflection at the end of each. I’m not always clear on why the additional division, except to make them bite-sized and accessible.

Tim Keller is solid, as usual. I’ve loved everything I’ve ever read by him.

Basically, this is a great resource. As I was laying out my sermon series on Romans, this was the first commentary i reached for to help organize the structure of the series.

I pastor Glynwood Baptist Church in Prattville, Alabama. I read a lot, write a little, and drink lots of coffee. I have three callings in life: surrender to Christ, be a husband to Trish, and be the best father/grandfather I can be. Everything else is an assignment, because everything else can be done by someone else.
