The book of Romans is often regarded as the most profound yet also difficult statement of the Christian faith. While not overlooking the complex theology of Paul's letter, Joseph A. Fitzmyer demonstrates here that Romans is also a wellspring of devotional insight, accessible and deeply rewarding even to everyday readers.

In this book Fitzmyer recasts the text of Romans into the form of meditations for devotional reflection in spiritual retreats, Bible studies, church classrooms, small groups, and other prayerful gatherings. Styled after the famous "Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola, the book includes twenty-four meditations that can be divided in a variety of ways and fit to a range of reading schedules. Each meditation is accompanied by a set of questions that encourages reflection on the passage of Romans being considered and also a colloquy in the form of a psalm or New Testament hymn that matches the sentiment of the Pauline passage.

A truly unique approach to spirituality, this book shows the role of Scripture in properly ordering the Christian life.
