Bible Study Of The Book Of Romans


The Art Of Preaching

An Informal Exposition of Scripture


By reading Scripture within a particular framework of time, you, too, can learn how to take a book of the Bible down to 280-310 words, composing your very own “Bible Quick Read” !

© 2007 K R Amerine


This technique was taught to the group leaders of a Bible study through BSF, the Bible Study Fellowship program.  We began by setting up a 32 week schedule of reading and studying a cherished book of God’s word!


I will be presenting an exposition of our study of the Book of Romans. The study ran for 32 weeks and was then divided down into the following weekly chapters studied during that set interval.

Here Is How You Will Begin!

Now that you have seen the breakdown of the study verses with a Titled Sub Heading, the rest should be easy for you!  Commit yourself now to reading God’s Word from Romans.


Homeletics is just a matter of “doing the outline” of the verses listed for study. You learned how to “outline” when you were in Middle or High School.  I will be presenting several of my own “out-lines” chosen randomly from the above verses to show you how I got the Subject Sentences.




You Are Learning How To Prepare Homiletics!

Let’s Begin:


Your outline will consist of:


A  What Is it About?


(Topics or events to outline, you will need 10-20.  You may use phrases if you like.)


B  Divisions


(Titles, 3 or 4 short  sentences.  These are squeezed down content from your “What Is It About?” paragraph.


C  Subject Sentence


(In TEN WORDS, this is further condensation.  Look at the Divisions and take them down to ONE SENTENCE.  This becomes the FIRST LINE of your ”Quick Bible Read.” © 2007 K R Amerine)


Now, that wasn’t hard, was it?
