Scripture Study on the Book of Romans to resume in August

Join the Little Rock Scripture Study for Part II of the two-part series as we discuss the book of Romans. Classes start August 27th.

This Little Rock Scripture Study (Part II) will make the transition covering the book of Romans, which is pivotal for those seeking to understand the faith and teaching of the Apostle Paul.  The Book of Romans is the longest of Paul's letters. It addresses the universal reality of sin in the world and the need for salvation in Jesus Christ. It explores both the strength and limits of the Law of Moses. Paul examines the new life attained in the Holy Spirit as God's gift and proclaims the mystery of God's plan to save Israel. Romans also highlights the ethical demands of the gospel.

For those joining the study for Part II, you will need to purchase a Study Set which includes the Study Guide by Catherine Upchurch (Galatians) and Clifford M. Yeary  (Romans) and a commentary, Galatians, and Romans, by Brendan Byrne (Liturgical Press).  Contact Dawn Mitchell for more information
