A Commentary on Romans by David Pawson and published Anchor Recordings Ltd
The author writes: "Martin Luther, struggling with Paul’s letter to the Romans, saw this phrase ‘the righteousness of God’ and could not think what it meant. He thought it meant that God will punish me, that God will send me to hell for my sins. It does mean that, but he couldn’t see anything more. Then one day the light shone in his monastery cell. One day he saw its truth. One day he realised that the righteousness of God is his righteousness not mine, and it is a righteousness that he wants to give me. His chains fell off, his heart was free, and the Reformation had begun – because a man realised that the new way to be right with God, the new way to be good, is not to try to be good, not to try to keep the commandments, but to receive by simple faith the righteousness of God as a free gift. That is the good news."
