BIBL 110-DO8 LUO Prof. William Floyd Biblical Worldview Essay Paul wrote the book of Romans to teach Christians of that area a godly view of life. Paul is sharing the way God wants us to view nature, our identity, our relationships, and how to deal with culture. Romans 1-8 has a lot of information to understand about how to live within these subject matters. This books show definitely the trouble we have as humans living within these subjects.
