Dr. Bill Creasy of Logos Bible Study uses a literary, historical approach to examine and enliven the bible for modern listeners. Dr. Creasy draws on his studies, travels, and personal anecdotes to depict a vivid picture of the works of scripture. Somewhere between a sermon and a college lecture, he delivers these audiobooks with authority but a pleasantly friendly voice and a touch of fun, using contemporary references.
In Dr. Creasy's view, the Epistles to Romans is not only the most important of the 13 books attributed to Paul but of all of the New Testament's 27 books. Though not chronologically his first work, it systematically lays out the thinking that the rest of his work draws upon. He discusses its context and teachings in depth.
Thirteen of the 27 books of the New Testament are traditionally ascribed to Paul. Although Romans is not the earliest of Paul's writings, like Isaiah and Matthew, Romans sits at the head of the epistles and letters. Written as a formal argument and structured as a scholastic diatribe, Romans presents Paul's great thesis that we are saved by grace through faith, not by works of Law. This is revolutionary! Romans, perhaps more than any other book ever written, has fundamentally changed Western civilization, and it is foundational to understanding all of Paul's other epistles and letters. Listen closely as Logos Bible Study's Dr. Bill Creasy explores this extraordinary work.

"Perfect audio study"
I was preparing to teach a bible study on Romans, and was looking for a good audio commentary. I honestly can't think of a better audio study than this! It is in enough depth to really get at the text, but is also very easy to listen to and enjoyable. One note -- it helps to have a bible in front of you, or at least to have read the book of Romans a few times before hand. Sometimes I would listen to this in the car, and when I stopped would find myself grabbing my bible and furiously taking notes!
Dr. Bill is great - he brings in just the right amount of personal anecdotes and illustrations. And a wonderful sense of humor!
At the end of the book, I found myself with a really solid basic understanding of the book of Romans, and I was able to teach a wonderful study.
I've since bought Genesis and look forward to working my way through the bible with Logos Bible Study.
"A wonderful lecture series!"
This is another great lecture series from Dr. Bill Creasy. He is always incredibly insightful and engaging. He often supplements the material with personal stories which are relevant and interesting. He has taken several trips to Israel and the Middle East where he visits the locations depicted in the Bible and he shares those first hand accounts which enables him to take you back to that point in time that the scripture is talking about.
"Learn so much from Dr Creasy"
I have been listening to each of Dr Creasy s books of the bible, studying them for several years now. He makes the difficulty --understood and gives me an insight I would never be able to get on my own.
"The letter to Roman Christians."
This work is a very good at opening the door for a deeper understanding of Romans by Paul by the way Dr. Creacy places his own levels of understanding of the times, circumstances and the people involved. This, along with the connection between the Biblical texts referenced opened up Romans for myself.
the man knows how to break down all the traditions and culture and explains it in today's common language.
"Master teacher and extraordinary story teller"
Master teacher and extraordinary story teller, Bill makes bible study interesting and alive. This is the third book we studied with a group of 5 men every Monday night.
"Bill Creasy is great."
if you are interested in bible study, this is your source! in depth and informative.
"very enjoyable lessons"
informative, enjoyable, worthwhile
He's fun to listen to and brings up aspects of the text that I had never heard or would never have seen on my own.
"Very clearly spoken and conveyed."
He knows his subject. He describes the text and the context well. Highly recommended. Looking forward to the next book...
"Not Creasy's best. But still very good."
Too many personal stories and jokes in this one. Not Creasy's best, but still very good. Would still recommend it.
