This is perhaps the most extensive expositional preaching of the book of Romans. It is not painstakingly slow but rather rich with challenging content. I recommend it any reformed seminary student.

This is a phenomenal exposition of the book of Romans by Pastor John Piper. It is a series of sermons each about 35-45 minutes long through Paul's letter to the Romans starting with Chapter 1 verse 1 and proceeding to the end of the book. The original time taken to record this was several years (somewhere between 4 and 8), and Piper jokes about it throughout.
Piper has an amazing gift to be able to provide a thorough understanding of the text and really help understand the intent of Paul's greatest letter. Piper's teachings are both academic and pragmatic. He does not over spiritualize the topics and often provides very thoughtful illustrations and analogies to help the listener better understand complex topics.
From a technical perspective, the audio quality is great and it is a joy to listen to. The download is split into 18 parts with each sermon coming as a single chapter. This is a long series; but, it is very easy to go back and forth between them if you'd like to listen again, which you likely will.
I highly recommend this title to all those interested in a deeper understanding of the Christian faith and how it relates to its origins in Judaism, our response to Jesus as the Christ, what it means to live a holy life, and how to walk in the Spirit of God. It continues to be an extremely helpful resource in my spiritual development and is a joy to listen to during my commute or in my private study time. My understanding of the Gospel is still deepening as a result of this selection.
Bottom line: This is a true 5-star selection. At only 1 credit, this is a steal. Download it today to deepen your understanding and faith.

If there was a Modern Preachers who is most known for his preaching on Romans it has to be John Piper.
Piper has preached through Romans for the dureation of his ministry. A great number of years.
He is very good at cross refering the thing he is teaching on.
He is a very clear communicator.
Some of the sermons are definitely hit and miss but one thing needs to be said, these are rare indeed.
It *is* worth noting that this is not an audio book per se but rather the sermons he has preached over many many years collected into a huge audio collection [about 150 hours].
The up shot of thisis that the audio quality varies greatly. I didn't find that this affected me adversely.
If you love the Bible and love Biblical preaching, you will love this collection of Piper's sermons.

This book is 100 + hours, divided into 18 files, but there is no way to distinguish them one from another. This means wasted hours starting, downloading and rejecting each file till you happen across the one you want. I love John Piper teaching, but this failing, common to all audible books comprised of multiple files, is a disappointment

give honor where honor is due and I honor Ps John Piper for His diligence over not 8 years and countless hours poured into this study of Romans but His life He has poured out to giving our Savior And Mighty Gracious Heavenly Father all Glory . All Glory to God forever. I will listen again and again
