The Book of Romans, with its compact yet all-encompassing summary of the Christian faith, has greatly influenced the church through the centuries. Augustine, Martin Luther, and John Wesley all trace their spiritual renewal to a reading of Romans. Great revivals in church history have been sparked by studying it. And the doctrinal truths within Romans are foundational to all of the late Dr. Francis Schaeffer's work.
Now available for the first time ever in print, Schaeffer's landmark commentary on the first eight chapters of Romans--drawn from his recorded talks to a group of students more than three decades ago--provides fresh insight into Schaeffer's thinking and the message of this most remarkable epistle, as well as an arresting perspective on our own times.
"Dr. Francis Schaeffer was God's gift to a generation of doubters and questioners. The power of his mind and the greater power of God's spirit in him continues to draw thinking men and women, not to religion, but to Jesus Christ." --Cal Thomas, nationally syndicated columnist
"This book further establishes Schaeffer as one of the outstanding ministers and expositors of our time. It's a valuable addition to the library of every pastor. " --Pastor D. James Kennedy, founder and director of Coral Ridge Ministries
"Francis Schaeffer helped many of us understand the drift of our culture and to think biblically about it. I'm grateful to him for encouraging Christians to know and defend God's unchanging truth in a changing world." --Joanne Kemp, Schaeffer Foundation board member
"Francis Schaeffer's books are the reason I have a theology of music today--one that is in harmony with Scripture and that beats with the rhythm of the heart of God." --Charlie Peacock, record producer and author
"Francis Schaeffer understood the collision of Christian truth with neo-pagan cultures. His insights are even more valuable today than when they were first expressed." --Pastor R.C. Sproul, founder and director of Ligonier Ministries
"Anyone who has ever read one of my novels or heard me speak is benefitting from the influence Dr. Schaeffer has had in my own life and thinking. Now more than ever, his work could prove essential in clarifying the Judeo-Christian worldview to a new generation." --Frank E. Peretti, best-selling fiction author
"It was my privilege to know Francis Schaeffer for most of his life as a Christian public servant. I recommend his writings most heartily." --C. Everett Koop, M.D., former U.S. Surgeon General
