John MacArthur is noted for his in-depth studies and exegesis. This excellent study on Romans comes complete with a NKJ version of the Book of Romans, with short marginal notes on what MacArthur considers commentary you should know about. There is a section included in each chapter called "Going Deeper" which is also a wonderful optional challenge for study. The questions are not easy but not overly difficult for anyone who is willing to work at it. Romans, the most doctrinal book of the Bible, is of inestimable value for any Christian to know and know well. MacArthur makes it easier, although not easy. I teach Bible studies and my mature women students are salivating to get to this, having been familiarized with MacArthur's other works. So if you really care about the Bible and about what Romans teaches you about living the Christian life, this isn't fluffy. It's serious business and highly recommended.

This is a great study of the book of Romans. MacArthur goes into such detail with the words and tense that a person can gain so much understanding by the original language. Be ready to work hard and be in the book of Romans for a while. He gives you so much to think about that you will not be able to sit down and do this study justice in a week.

This bible study is excellent! We took 2 to 3 weeks for each chapter in order to really cover the material. (Our bible study time is half study and half social.) His side column explains different words and phrases in the text and gives more meaning to the material. I just enjoyed every lesson. Now I'm using his study of James for my personal devotions and am finding it just as wonderful.

Dr. MacArthur's study guide, Romans: Grace, Truth and Redemption is excellent. I use it to teach a class at Greater Excellence Ministry School in Detroit (313-272-7887 for more information). It functions as a source of lecture material as well as a comprehensive study guide which helps students interpret the book of Romans one verse, one passage, one concept at a time. Dr. MacArthur provides great questions and guides the student through both Testaments to broaden their understanding of this doctrinal work.

The overwhelming majority of the book's 110 pages is taken up by scripture passages (which we already have access to) and blank lines for recording reflections and answers to the study questions. This study has very little in the way of actual content, instead focusing on asking sunday school style questions. The book never actually answers any of the questions or provides deeper insight, meaning that there is little to learn from this study except the thoughts that you and your study group are able to produce. For those hoping for an in-depth look at Romans that will guide you into deeper, more thorough understanding of scripture, look elsewhere. This book is a waste of your time, energy and money.

I love the detail of the verse by verse structure, definitions which clarify, the setting of the a visual scenario through the beginning context section. The Keys to the text helps to further clarify the coming text. The questions at the end of each segment are thought provoking and challenge the understanding and growing faith of the student and will reflect the students commitment, growth and true understanding through their responses. We will not limit ourselves to 12 weeks, we will take the time required to thoroughly study and absorb the material.

If there is any study on any book of the Bible you do, this has to be it. As John MacArthur says it, the Book of Romans is the Magna Carta of Christianity. MacArthur lays out all details of God's wonderful plan of justification, forgiveness, salvation in a very powerful manner.

No long-winded elaboration needed. This is the study guide you want to use in studying a most powerful book.

I needed a study over the summer and this fit the bill. It's similar in format to Bible Study Fellowship. Just enough commentary, without doing the "thinking" for me.

This Bible study is great! It is thorough and very informative. I like that it contains all the Scripture that is being studied right in the study guide, it saves time for the student. The questions are well thought through and presented. John MacArthur is a godly teacher. I highly recommend all of his books and study guides.

Compared to MacArthur's other study guides, Romans fell short of my expectations. I needed to do many online searches, as well as reference other study bibles to understand passages that this guide out. However, the questions were good, and pushed this review to "It's okay".
