Romans | [Dr. Bill Creasy]

Romans

Although Romans is not the earliest of Paul’s writings, like Isaiah and Matthew, Romans sits at the head of the epistles and letters. Written as a formal argument and structured as a scholastic diatribe, Romans presents Paul’s great thesis that we are saved by grace through faith, not by works of Law. This is revolutionary! Romans, perhaps more than any other book ever written, has fundamentally changed Western civilization, and it is foundational to understanding all of Paul’s other epistles and letters.

Audible Editor Reviews

Dr. Bill Creasy of Logos Bible Study uses a literary, historical approach to examine and enliven the bible for modern listeners. Dr. Creasy draws on his studies, travels, and personal anecdotes to depict a vivid picture of the works of scripture. Somewhere between a sermon and a college lecture, he delivers these audiobooks with authority but a pleasantly friendly voice and a touch of fun, using contemporary references.

In Dr. Creasy’s view, the Epistles to Romans is not only the most important of the 13 books attributed to Paul but of all of the New Testament’s 27 books. Though not chronologically his first work, it systematically lays out the thinking that the rest of his work draws upon. He discusses its context and teachings in depth.

Publisher's Summary

Thirteen of the 27 books of the New Testament are traditionally ascribed to Paul. Although Romans is not the earliest of Paul’s writings, like Isaiah and Matthew, Romans sits at the head of the epistles and letters. Written as a formal argument and structured as a scholastic diatribe, Romans presents Paul’s great thesis that we are saved by grace through faith, not by works of Law. This is revolutionary! Romans, perhaps more than any other book ever written, has fundamentally changed Western civilization, and it is foundational to understanding all of Paul’s other epistles and letters. Listen closely as Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy explores this extraordinary work.

    "Perfect audio study"

    I was preparing to teach a bible study on Romans, and was looking for a good audio commentary. I honestly can't think of a better audio study than this! It is in enough depth to really get at the text, but is also very easy to listen to and enjoyable. One note -- it helps to have a bible in front of you, or at least to have read the book of Romans a few times before hand. Sometimes I would listen to this in the car, and when I stopped would find myself grabbing my bible and furiously taking notes!

    Dr. Bill is great - he brings in just the right amount of personal anecdotes and illustrations. And a wonderful sense of humor!

    At the end of the book, I found myself with a really solid basic understanding of the book of Romans, and I was able to teach a wonderful study.

    I've since bought Genesis and look forward to working my way through the bible with Logos Bible Study.

    If you could sum up Romans in three words, what would they be?

    informative, enjoyable, worthwhile


    What did you like best about this story?

    the subject


    What does Dr. Bill Creasy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He's fun to listen to and brings up aspects of the text that I had never heard or would never have seen on my own.

    "Not Creasy's best. But still very good."

    Too many personal stories and jokes in this one. Not Creasy's best, but still very good. Would still recommend it.

    "Dr. Creasy is great!"

    I've listened to hours and hours of Dr. Creasy's teachings. His depth of knowledge and his academic approach have re-engaged me with the Bible. This "book" on Romans explains the literary structure of the book and gives a detailed explanation of Paul's thesis. Also addresses pre-destination, alleged misogyny, and grace v works.

    "Rambling Romans"

    I found this very disappointing. Creasy has a rambling lecture style featuring suspicious anecdotes about his personal life that do not really illuminate the text of Romans. One minute he's trying to be a professor, the next a preacher and then a stand-up comic. He isn't very good at any of these roles. I will have to look somewhere else for a better commentary on Romans.
