SUGGESTED BOOK OF THE MONTH
Comforts from Romans
by Elyse Fitzpatrick
In the book Comforts from Romans, Celebrating the Gospel One Day at a Time, Elyse M. Fitzpatrick takes the first eight chapters of Romans and breaks them into 31 devotional-like chapters, beginning with our ruined righteousness and ending with how nothing can separate us from God’s love. She is quick to point out that the book of Romans is not a book about us, but it is a book about all that Christ has accomplished for us.
Many devotional books turn out to be fluff with a verse tacked on at the end. This is not the case with Comforts from Romans. Elyse unpacks Romans 1-8 in a way that is, at the same time, convicting, encouraging, healing, full of hope, and full of proclaiming the greatness of Jesus our Savior and how the gospel can and should affect us every day.
If you are looking for a good devotional to start off the New Year, this is a great one!
