    1. This is an absolute classic! It's the letter to the Romans, anytime, anyplace. (I love my 1967 Special Crusade Edition, with it's funky cartoon drawings. It takes me right back to Paupers' Paperbacks in Bowling Green, Ohio.)

    2. I read this many years ago and have kept it because it has the basics that people should remind themselves about periodically. Sometimes as Christians grow they become into themselves and proud of how “religious” they are. Faith and trust are the basics that have nothing to do with how we appear to others or what we do. The church is full of religious people.

    3. Highly recommend for Christians!This was very down to earth and helped clarify some issues I struggle with. Clearly defines being a Christian using Romans.

    4. I have written in the front inside cover of this book, "The Search." I also have sheets of paper with which I answered the questions. I wrote, "The gospel-the Good News of Jesus Christ. To me, personally, this means Jesus saved my from (and I listed the difficulties that I was experiencing in my life). Through Him, I am forgiven and have eternal life."I initially read this sometime in the eighties. It was during this time that I understood the concept of Jesus emotionally for I was struggling de [...]

    5. I read this book as a young teenager, and it was a big help to me in understanding grace. I suppose it is written for a teenage audience, and if I read it today I would be disappointed that it was simplistic. But it filled an important purpose in my life, and I appreciate that.

    6. I should have read this book some 20 years ago in the beginning of my christian days. It is a spiritual milk, but milk of the highest quality. Down-to-earth, easy reading with brilliant explaining of profound truths, can't find better book for fresh converts.

    7. Loved the chapter summaries and writing exercises and the way Fritz made me think ofapplications for life today--great read for anyone wondering about the difference between being a Christian and being religious. They are not always synonymous.

    8. This is basically a practical application of Romans. Ridenour seemed to keep away from controversy without conceding truth, nor giving apologies.

    9. ini tema yang menarik. supaya kita jangan terjebak dengan seremoni belaka tetapi pada hubungan pribadi dengan Allah. diambil dari kitab roma jadi kayak pendalaman alkitab kitab roma

    10. This is a great exposition of the book of Romans. It amplifies that we are saved by grace and we need nothing else. Must read!

    11. A study of the Bible book of Romans using the Living Bible. A bit dated (it was written in the 1970's) but can still be helpful.
