You will certainly enjoy this expanded summary of this book. Romans is the best book in the Bible for presenting the plan of God's salvation from wrong living. As such, Brad does a great job of explaining this as he moves along. Once wrong living is dealt with, He moves quickly into salvation from guilt and condemnation, explaining clearly how Romans deals with each of these issues. I love how he shows that the Gospel is indeed good news to all those caught up in the bondage of wrong living. Forty years ago I was once bound by alcoholism, fits of anger, compulsive lying and cursing, immorality, and other common problems of this world. Learning about the gospel-good news- of God's love and salvation, I took the remedy presented here from the book of Romans. Becoming free from wrong living-sin-and the resulting freedom from guilt and condemnation, literally saved my life. No wonder the Gospel is called God's good news.
Noticeably, Brad is certainly qualified to write this book. Look over his education and experience, and one can see how God can use him to explain so well this subject in such a short version. Also, his concern that this information gets out is highly commendable. As an author myself for the same reasons, concern that things are more clearly stated, has led me to also write short, and hopefully clearly, on some of these most important topics.

Brad, keep up the great work, and I will look forward to reviewing some more of these excellent short articles.
