The apostle Paul makes his appearance in the Bible as an ambitious Pharisee who is determined to destroy the early church. But his religious world comes crashing down when he meets the risen Jesus on the road to Damascus. Paul is never the same, and soon he is traveling across the world to spread the gospel. At one point, Paul writes a letter to a church in Rome, outlining in clear terms the central truths and doctrines of the Christian faith. Romans reads like a first-century course in theology, culminating in the incredible truth that God has made a way-through the sacrifice of Christ-for all to find salvation.
