If the Bible were a mountain range, it is said, Romans 8 would be its highest peak. I can say after reading this study that Trillia Newbell is a sure-footed mountain guide that will help you climb this great passage and get some of its best breathtaking views of God and our salvation in Christ. I highly recommend this volume!

What would change if you really understood all that God has done and is doing for you?
Sure we know in our head that God is for us, that there's great hope in his relationship with us and salvation for us, but sometimes these truths can be hard to believe in the midst of exhaustion, busyness, and a world of spiritual and physical opposition. If God Is For Us is a devotional Bible Study on Romans 8 designed to cement in your soul the great truths of our salvation and an understanding for how the Holy Spirit guides our new life in the Spirit, all found in this beloved chapter of Scripture.
Why just the one chapter? The simple answer: there's so much there! It's no wonder that so many Christians list Romans among their favorite books of the Bible and Romans 8 as their favorite in the book. Romans is packed with profound truth after profound truth which are then followed up with life-changing promise after life-changing promise. In this 6-week study, Trillia Newbell will walk you through Romans 8 and help you cement deep inside yourself the scandalous truths of our great salvation, our inheritance, the assurance of our faith, and ultimately the love of our good Father.
Each week will include:
If you've experienced the comfort of Romans 8 before, but want to plant it more deeply in your person this is the Bible Study for you. And it's great for individual or group settings.
If you're ready to live a life that shouts: “God is for me, who can be against me,” let's get started today.
Romans 8 is probably best known for its famous verse 28. What I love about Trillia Newbell's new study on the chapter is that it gives readers the whole context of the glorious promise contained in this verse. If God Is For Us: The Everlasting Truth of Our Great Salvation, is Trillia's latest book and it is one that I have enjoyed greatly. If God is For Us takes readers through 6 weeks of looking at Romans with the emphasis on Chapter 8. One of my favorite aspects of this book is that the first week of the study is exploring Romans 1-7 which provides readers with the context of what is occurring once they arrive at Chapter 8. Each week is broken up into studies for five days which I found to be helpful as it gives readers a few make up days if they are unable to complete each study in the five day timeframe. Each study has a passage of Scripture to read followed by response questions. I'm deeply appreciative of the care Trillia invested in crafting these questions because they are challenging yet simple enough for learners at all levels. The Explore section of the study includes a passage of Scripture along with some thoughts from Trillia about the passage and is followed by the Reflect section which contains application style questions. Although I have previously read Romans a few times and studied it in depth with a group of friends years ago, I found that If God Is For Us helped me to see Romans 8 and its preceding chapters in a new light. I'm thankful for what I have learned by going through If God Is For Us and am proud to recommend it. I received If God Is For Us compliments of Moody Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
