“It is hard to imagine a better approach to inductive Bible Study than we find in this series.” — Diane Schreiner, women’s Bible Study leader for 20+ years

In The Gospel of God: A Bible Study on Romans for Women (Vol 1), wise and helpful questions guide you deep into the text using the three basic steps of all sound Bible study: Observe, Interpret, Apply.

  • This is an 18-week inductive study guide for women
  • Each week’s chapter is divided into sections for 5 days of study
  • Volume 1 covers Romans 1:1–8:39
  • Ideal for small groups, individuals, or 1-on-1 mentoring
  • Lots of extra white space for journaling
  • Spiral-bound for lay-flat ease of writing

When we study the Bible inductively we want to know what the author meant when he wrote to his original audience. This involves reading Bible passages in context and asking questions about the text. The goal is to find the meaning and significance from the text itself.

We do this automatically every day when we read news, social media, or even recipes! Not surprisingly, it is also the best way to study God’s word.

At the beginning of this study you’ll find a brief, helpful introduction, including optional Notes for Leaders. This is followed by clear, simple questions that will help you to Observe what is being said, Interpret what Paul was communicating to his original readers, and Apply the book of Romans in your own life.

The Gospel of God: A Bible Study on Romans for Women (Vol 1) is part of the Delighting in the Word series by Keri Folmar, from Cruciform Press. Each study in the series will impress the truths of Scripture upon your heart and strengthen your Bible study skills. Come delight in God’s word, and be encouraged to live more effectively for Jesus and his gospel!

The growing Delighting in the Word Series:

  • Includes studies on the Gospel of Mark, Romans, Ephesians, Philippians, Titus, and James, with more to come
  • Endorsed by Kathleen Nielson, Kristie Anyabwile, Diane Schreiner, Connie Dever, Gloria Furman, and many more
  • Loved and trusted by churches and Christians worldwide since 2014


Passionate about encouraging women to delight in the Scriptures, Keri runs women’s Bible studies at the United Christian Church of Dubai where she’s privileged to teach fascinating women from every inhabited continent. In addition to the Delighting in the Word Bible study series, she has written The Good Portion: Scripture, a book that encourages women to discover the treasure and enjoy the sweetness of God’s word. Keri is the wife of John, who is the senior pastor of UCCD, and they have three grown children. In a previous life, as chief counsel of House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Keri was staff writer of the Partial Birth Abortion Ban.

Praise for Keri Folmar’s Delighting in the Word Inductive Bible Studies for Women

“With simple clarity, Keri Folmar guides us in learning to study the Bible…Keri encourages us to read God’s Word carefully, to understand clearly, and to apply prayerfully…This study points the way into the biblical text, offering a clear and effective guide…she encourages her readers first and foremost to listen well to God’s inspired Word.”
Kathleen Nielson is author of the Living Word Bible Studies ; Director of Women’s Initiatives, The Gospel Coalition; and wife of Niel, who served as President of Covenant College from 2002 to 2012.

“Keri’s Bible study will not only bring the truths of [Scripture] to bear upon your life, but will also train you up for better, more effective study of any book of the Bible with her consistent use of the three questions needed in all good Bible study: Observation, Interpretation, and Application.”
Connie Dever is author of The Praise Factory children’s ministry curriculum and wife of Mark, senior pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church and president of 9Marks.

“It is hard to imagine a better inductive Bible study tool than this one. So many study tools wander from the biblical text, but Keri Folmar’s study concentrates on what [the biblical author] says…unfolding its message with accuracy and clarity…The questions are inductive and applicable, helping us to understand [the biblical author’s] intent and what [the book] means for our church involvement and our personal lives…I recommend this book for both individual and group study, for it will enable you to grow in your faith”
Diane Schreiner, wife of professor, author, and pastor Tom Schreiner and mother of four grown children, has led women’s Bible studies for more than 20 years.

“Keri lets the Scriptures do the talking! No cleverly invented stories, ancillary anecdotes, or emotional manipulation here. Keri takes us deeper into the text, deeper into the heart of [the biblical author], deeper into the mind of Christ, and deeper into our own hearts… Each new week of study provides a review of the previous week, to help us keep in context what we’ve studied. The subsequent days are for gold digging, and there are rich treasures to discover…I appreciate the way Keri consistently challenges us to apply God’s Word to our own hearts, and also to our relationships in the body of Christ. This is a great study to do on your own or in partnership with someone who is not yet a Christian, or with someone who struggles with assurance or expresses a desire to have a vibrant life of faith and service to Christ…I highly commend this study.”
Kristie Anyabwile is a North Carolina native and graduate of NC State University with a degree in history. Her husband, Thabiti, serves as a pastor in Washington, DC, and as a Council Member for The Gospel Coalition.

“We have no greater need than to hear and obey and love the Word of God. Keri Folmar’s Bible studies are specifically designed to help you do just that…Keri is convinced that God is God-centered and that for the sake of our joy, we should be, too…She skillfully created these rich resources—and not only that, she has put the tools in your hands so you can study God’s word for yourself…I highly recommend that you embark on these studies with some other ladies. Then you can all watch in amazement at how God gives you contentment in him as he shows you the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus as Lord.”
Gloria Furman is a pastor’s wife in the Middle East , and author of Glimpses of Grace, Treasuring Christ When Your Hands Are Full, and The Pastor’s Wife
