The Gospel Pure and Simple - Ro24 Comes back to Philadelphia

Posted by
You can't be serious!' is one of the most common reactions when I tell people we're planning to tackle a serious study of the entire book of Romans in just under 24 hours. You can almost see their minds racing as they imagine a marathon, through-the-night, verse-by-verse exposition of the most famous of Paul's letters. So, after their panic attack has subsided, I gently tell them that's not quite what we have in mind.

Romans in a Weekend, as it was first called, began in Philadelphia back in the 80's under the leadership of ames Boice and Sinclair Ferguson. Their aim was to provide a carefully crafted overview of the book, supported by study guide materials that would allow people to feel at ease with a book that so often intimidates them. It by no means tried to say all that could be said about Romans, but it said enough to encourage people to really get into it for themselves. 

The mini-conference proved so successful in Philadelphia that it morphed into Romans in 24 Hours and effectively went coast-to-coast across the States and even as far as Scotland. Well, after over a decade since it was last aired, the idea has been revived, adapted for a 21st century audience (Ro24) and is being re-launched in Bryn Mawr, PA at Proclamation Presbyterian Church. Sinclair Ferguson will be back as one of its keynote speakers along with Liam Goligher and Mark Johnston. Dr. Ferguson will be preaching both services in Proclamation on the next day, which happens to be Reformation Sunday.

Here's a great opportunity to be exposed to a first rate introduction to the Book of Romans and discover why this book has in so many ways shaped the growth of Christians and Churches through the ages all over the world.
