In How the Gospel Brings Us All the Way Home, Dr. Derek W.H. Thomas explores Romans 8, which he calls "the best chapter in the Bible." Dr. Thomas begins at Romans 8:1 with "the best news imaginable"—believers' just and deserved condemnation before God has been taken away by Jesus Christ's work on the cross. He then contrasts earthly minded and spiritually minded people, showing that only those who are spiritually minded know life.
"While Christians may believe that the gospel merely begins our Christian lives, Derek Thomas shows us convincingly that the gospel is the beginning, middle, and end of our lives—indeed, that it is status-shaping, holiness-motivating, and glory-providing. Moving through the grand biblical themes of Romans 8 that shape our understanding of who and whose we are, believers will see that our union with Jesus determines everything about us."

"The best books are those that instruct the mind, engage the imagination, and ignite the heart with love for God. Dr. Derek Thomas' How the Gospel Brings Us All the Way Home does all three. With theological care, textual precision, and a pastor's heart, Dr. Thomas holds Paul's glorious meditation in Romans 8 to our eyes and helps us remember again just how great is the salvation Jesus won for His people."
