The Apostle Paul is the author of the Book of Romans. The overarching goal of Paul’s writing is to clarify several concepts critical to understanding the purpose of Christ’s mission on Earth; salvation-through-faith-alone, the value of righteous living in multiplying His family, and how it is that a sinner is redeemed-to-pre-Fall-purity to be able to stand before a perfect God.
