Romans Resources

In 2019, The Summit Church will study the book of Romans together. Pastor J.D. will preach through Romans all year long, and our Summit small groups will investigate the message and meaning of Romans in our small group rhythms. As we study Romans, our Summit Institute team has provided a list of recommended Romans resources to meet a variety of ministry needs.

Introductory Resources

  • The Bible Project Videos:  These videos break down the message of the book of Romans and its flow of thought.  They are broken into 2 parts: Romans 1-4 and Romans 5-16
  • The Bible Project Poster:  This poster is a visual summary of the Bible Project videos found above.
  • ESV Study Bible Introduction:  This brief introduction provides basic background information for the book of Romans, and some a proposed outline.
  • How to Teach Romans (Michael Kruger Interview):  In these interviews, Michael Kruger answers questions about how to teach the book of Romans.  Part I of the interview covers Romans 1-7, while Part II covers Romans 8-16.

Study Guides / Devotionals

  • Romans Small Group Study 1: Romans 1-3: This study is written by our very own Summit Institute team and the Summit Small Groups ministry. Each study begins with some key verses and key principles for each passage, followed by a devotional introduction to prepare our hearts and minds. Then, the Study Guide section incorporates a series of questions specifically designed to help us engage the text of Romans in personal study and small group discussion, according to the H.E.A.R. Bible Study method.
  • Read Mark Learn –  Romans:  This is a small group Bible study series that is designed to equip people to study God’s Word for themselves – and in studying it, know God’s purpose for their lives.
  • Romans: A 12-Week Study (Knowing the Bible):  “These 12-week studies lead participants through books of the Bible and are made up of four basic components: (1) reflection questions help readers engage the text at a deeper level; (2) ‘Gospel Glimpses’ highlight the gospel of grace throughout the book; (3) ‘Whole-Bible Connections’ show how any given passage connects to the Bible’s overarching story of redemption, culminating in Christ; and (4) ‘Theological Soundings’ identify how historic orthodox doctrines are taught or reinforced throughout Scripture.”


As you study Romans, consider this list of helpful commentaries that deal with the text faithfully.
