Synopsis:

Is your greatest passion for God? Do you want Him to change you however He desires and bring you into more intimate fellowship with Him?

Even if you're not living out that desire right now, but you long to move in that direction, A Passion for God--drawn from the book of Romans--can help renew the love of God within you.

Romans has inspired more leaders of the faith throughout history and spawned more revivals within the church than any other book in the Bible. Augustine, Martin Luther, and John Wesley all pointed to a reading of Romans as the beginning of their spiritual renewal. Indeed, of all Paul's letters, this one, sent to the citizens of the most powerful empire of ancient days, is the most compact, sophisticated, and all-encompassing in its summary of the Christian faith. It is the apostle's divinely inspired admonition that Christ held the answers to all of life's crucial questions.

With its dynamic new paraphrase of Romans and the inspiring thoughts and prayers that accompany each passage, A Passion for God translates the truths of this epistle into personal worship. Through this book you will clearly come to see how a thoughtful reading of the biblical message, when applied to your devotional life, can blossom into a living affection for your Creator.

As Christians, we need to be empowered by the gospel above all. If you hunger to be rekindled by the holy flames of revival, A Passion for God can created such a fire in your life and ministry.

"A Passion for God certainly exudes its purpose in stimulating personal worship. It achieves a unique and thoughtful blend of doctrine and devotion which should prove both helpful and encouraging to the diligent believer." --John F. MacArthur, Jr., pastor and teacher, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, CA

"This thoughtful paraphrase of Romans, coupled to appropriate heart-felt prayers of response and suitable quotations from Christian leaders of the past, is a fresh, helpful and stimulating approach to the greatest of Paul's letters. A Passion for God is a book not to be rushed through, but to be read carefully and with prayer. Your own prayers of praise and a fuller measure of devotion to God will be an inevitable response." --Dr. James Montgomery Boice, minister, Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, PA

"Too often, study of the Letter of Romans is focused exclusively on academic and theological issues that are not brought home to Christian life and devotion. By bringing together a marvelous selection of comments and prayers, Dr. Ortlund forces us to view the Letter to the Romans with the kind of devotional application that our reading of Scripture should always have. The prayers and devotional readings are reflective of accurate exegesis of the text." --Doug Moo, chairman, New Testament Department, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"Read this book slowly. It is warm with one man's affair with God, and if you read it too fast, you will speed past the Temple and never see it. Above all, thank the Father that here and there, in a world over-concerned with popular Christianity, comes a man who cares more for Christ than Christianity. Read this book and, as you read, you will again see the glorious Christ high and lifted up." --Calvin Miller, author
