Title: Straight to the Heart (Romans)
Author: Phil Moore
Publisher: Monarch Books
About the Book:
Straight to the Heart is a series of devotional commentaries for those who appreciate the insights and sound research found in commentaries but find scholarly writing dry and lacking in personal application. The Straight to the Heart series does not cover the whole text, but focuses on key sections that communicate the main themes of each book. Although the tone is light, the text is full of useful application and backed by substantial scholarship. Its clear, thought-provoking insights will feed both mind and soul.
I took this book and used it as a starter book for my Jr. High Sunday School class. While it didn't dive really deep into the entire book, it was great to get into a basic overview for my class. They really liked the historical view that was presented to know what was going on when the book was written. If you are new to studying the Bible, I suggest you pick up on of the Straight to the Heart books to learn a little more about each book without getting too overwhelmed as many study guides tend to do.
