Dale Leschert has written - "Paul's epistle to the Romans may possibly be the most influential letter ever written. Apart from its immediate impact upon the first century, it has indirectly altered the direction of the church and secular history through its instrumentality in the conversion of several of Christianity's most outstanding leaders." Augustine, Luther and Wesley are amongst those who relate their trust in Christ to this book. Romans is all about the revelation of God's righteousness in freely offering salvation to all people through faith. Written about AD 56 or 7 in Corinth whilst he was on his way to Jerusalem, Romans historically fits into the book of Acts near the end of Paul's third missionary journey.
