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.
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
