Welcome to the Romans blog!
Here you will encounter what many believe to be the the most wonderful document of all times, the apostle Paul’s letter to the Romans, in a way that you have never done before:
The picture above is a visual narrative of the book of Romans. The design is based on an age old memory trick called a memory palace or an architectural mnemonic (See the About page to find out more). It will enable you to walk through the book of Romans like you would walk through a shopping mall. The fringe benefit of this trip is that you will remember where everything is situated!
If you are interested to travel through Romans in this way, you can do one of two things:
- You can click here to surf the Romans “big picture” above and to have an interactive encounter with each character (Highly recommended!). The links will ultimately direct you back to the commentary section of this blog. For a short video tutorial on how to get started, watch this.
- You can click here for the site map of this blog. It will give you links to the commentary of each chapter, as well as to an Introduction and Overview section. (Please read through the introduction and overview before starting a serious study of Romans, as it will greatly help you to grasp the “big picture” of Romans.) You will also find links to videos of the Romans course.*
If you want to know more about the story behind the picture, and the development of its course material, click here.
If you want to find out what some famous people had to say about Romans, as well as get an idea of the main theme of Romans (and a sample of where all of this going!), click here.

If you are interested in Big Picture Thinking (the type of thinking that has birthed the picture above), you can click here for some posts.
*(The blog is currently under construction, so only the Introduction and Overview section and Chapters 1 and 2 are active on the site map. On the Romans picture, only chapter 1’s links are active. Links to the videos of the latest Romans: The Big Picture course are added weekly from February 2023.)
