Norman begins this magnificent study of Paul’s great letter by laying a foundation of God’s universal truths: God’s love-nature; His purpose in creating mankind; evil as the un-manifested side of God; the necessity of opposites to reveal everything we know; the origin of evil and its place in God’s purposes. He also explores freedom, choice, faith, and the need for a total disillusionment to prepare us for the way of faith to receive a new life–the life of Christ. Norman brilliantly treats some of the most disputed topics of Christendom: the sovereignty of God, the hardening of Pharoah’s heart; the statement, “Jacob have I loved and Esau I have hated”; God’s creating some vessels for honor and some for dishonor. Finally, Norman discusses the word of faith and how we function on this highest level of spiritual experience. This series would be ideal for a group Bible study.
