''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, Women's Ministry Consultant, Christian Education and Publications, Presbyterian Church in America; author, Spiritual Mothering
''''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!''

There are 32 devotions that cover the first eight chapters of Romans. I do hope she goes onto prepare another books for the remaining chapters. I'd love to read her thoughts on Romans 12, in particular, one of my favourite chapters in the Bible.
Fitzpatrick takes a verse and unpacks it in a practical way that is enlightening and comforting.
Certainly this isn't a commentary of the book but Fitzpatrick credits having read many of the great commentators versions and she brings some of the fruit she gained from those in adding to her thoughts on each verse. I've been reading this alongside John Stott's commentary and have appreciated the different tone and perspective Fitzpatrick brings to the verses she covers in this book.
Romans is grace filled. That is where our hearts are transformed. The law shows the condition of our heart, but grace shows the goodness of God. Romans gives us a better understanding of the law and grace. They do are pitted against each other, but when dealt with correctly, give us great freedom to love and to be loved. There is much to love about the book of Romans and this book is a great start to get you there
