Elevator Pitch: The Good News in One Chapter, Romans 8

Elevator Pitch: The Good News in One Chapter, Romans 8

The theology of the gospel is an endless source of books, papers, dissertations, and blog posts. But isn’t there a simplicity to the gospel that can both be easily conveyed to the unfamiliar, and yet also readily rediscovered by those for whom it’s perhaps become too familiar, like a song you haven’t heard in a long while? If so, where might you look? Many have found the eighth chapter of Paul’s letter to the church at Rome as the simplest and strongest summary of the gospel. Think of it as the proverbial “elevator pitch”—the main idea designed to capture your attention. 2020 may offer us the opportunity to make plain the gospel in simplest terms; Romans 8 may prepare us for it. But the year ahead may also find us most in need of hearing again the essence of what first captured us.
