General view of Romans

The Epistle to the Romans or Letter to the Romans, often shortened to Romans, is the sixth book in the New Testament.  This is the longest of all the Pauline epistles, as a dense sublime book about the justification and salvation of Jews and Greeks alike by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ.  However, it is not a systematic theological essay nor a summary of Paul’s lifework.  Nevertheless, many consider it his masterpiece.  It dwarfs most of his other writings, even though there have been frequent disagreements on the best approach to this work.  What nobody doubts is that we are dealing with a work of massive substance, presenting a formidable intellectual challenge, while offering a breathtaking theological and spiritual vision. What is the most important work that you have ever read?
