Practical, inspiring, uplifting, relevant -- and the daily readings are just the right length for busy people. Concise but not superficial.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never thought I'd want to be wrecked! 15 Jan. 2013
By Happymom - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Most of my life I have fought bravely to have a "stiff upper lip", "keep it together", or "be strong". As I began reading "Comforts from Romans" I was struck with the thought that really, I want to be wrecked! I want to be undone in my own attempts at morality, independence, and self-sustenance! I want to be like Paul whose system of "righteousness" was utterly wrecked when he was exposed to God's amazing grace. We should start a movement and make our own t-shirts WRECKED BY GRACE! Whose with me!?!?!

5.0 out of 5 stars Captures the essence of Paul's gospel message found in first 8 chapters of Romans 1 Feb. 2016
By Ian Acheson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Elyse Fitzpatrick has done it again with this superb set of 32 devotions on Romans. Fitzpatrick has a way of unpacking the wonder of the gospel in a way that makes you want more of Jesus. Her words sooth, challenge and provoke you to soak in God's immense love for us. Not only does she engage the mind but more significantly she stirs your heart in wanting more of that immense love.

There are 32 devotions that cover the first eight chapters of Romans. I do hope she goes onto prepare another books for the remaining chapters. I'd love to read her thoughts on Romans 12, in particular, one of my favourite chapters in the Bible.

Fitzpatrick takes a verse and unpacks it in a practical way that is enlightening and comforting.

Certainly this isn't a commentary of the book but Fitzpatrick credits having read many of the great commentators versions and she brings some of the fruit she gained from those in adding to her thoughts on each verse. I've been reading this alongside John Stott's commentary and have appreciated the different tone and perspective Fitzpatrick brings to the verses she covers in this book.

Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't miss the Grace in Humility and Weakness 11 Feb. 2014
By Jeanie S - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
How many times should we hear the gospel? If our hearts grow calloused of hearing it, then there is something wrong with our hearts. As Ms. Fitzpatrick so wonderfully says, we should be like children saying again! again!. Romans, is the gospel. Israel missed Jesus because his glory was hidden in weakness and humility and we too can miss him for the very same reasons, when we do not apply the Gospel in our every day living. Each short chapter is walk thru Romans and how to apply to Gospel. It is as simple as believing. in faith, when we believe in the work of Christ, we are transformed with grace and thankfulness. The law shows our utter despair and to go from trusting in ourselves to trusting ourselves to God, believing that he is as good as his word.

Romans is grace filled. That is where our hearts are transformed. The law shows the condition of our heart, but grace shows the goodness of God. Romans gives us a better understanding of the law and grace. They do are pitted against each other, but when dealt with correctly, give us great freedom to love and to be loved. There is much to love about the book of Romans and this book is a great start to get you there

Elyse is such a wise and godly woman. She has studied the Word and is so adept at putting it in terms easy to understand. I highly recommend this volume for those who would find comfort in Christ.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's like a conversation from Romans 18 Feb. 2014
By Beth - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Amazing grace.....really! Romans is a powerful epistle and definitely meaty. Ms. Fitzpatrick uses a daily devotional style to treat many of the more well taught verses in a conversational and relational tone that draws her reader. Having recently and suddenly lost my beloved husband of 40 years, who also labored with me the past 18 as a b & B innkeeper, eating a meal solo is sometimes painful. I've looked forward to "lunch with Elyse and Jesus' word" over the past month. I have been reminded over and over of reasons for rejoicing and purposes for praising. I've sent copies to four friends and anticipate reasons to order more. We may come from differing traditions on baptism, but God has used her writing for my ongoing growth.
