Sinner is trulysaved Jul 8, 2007
THis book is fantastic. Our Lord said we must repent, He sent the disciples out in twos to tell us we must repent and Peter said we must repent to be saved. THis book explains why a Christian must be repentant and what it truly means to repent.
Repentane The First Word of the Gospel Apr 12, 2007
I've been a Christian for nine years, and have read countless books. By far, this is the BEST book I have read outside of the Bible. In a day and age when the Gospel is being watered down so much, people need to know what it means to REPENT. Without repentance, no one can enter heaven. Regardless of what position they hold in a Church, how long they have been going to Church, or what their father, mother or grandparents did. Each person will stand before God on judgment day, and if one has never repented and believed the gospel they will perish. This book is CHALK FULL of scripture from Genesis to Revelation pleading with men and women to repent. This book is PERFECT for a men's or women's Bible study, I highly recommend it!!! [...]
A must read on repentance Jul 13, 2006
One can go to any of the major Christian bookstores and not find one honest, straightforward book on repentance. This is one from a man who has walked out his repentance for over 50 years. I read through it in a few lengthy and painful evenings and it's time to read it again.
May those who are honestly seeking Jesus find this book helpful. It's much like Brother Roberts' particular style, which tends to be both instructional and convicting.
In short, this is a must read for any serious disciple of Christ.
One of a kind Aug 10, 2005
This is the only thorough-going work on repentance I have found. And thorough it is, being used by several seminaries. The fact that it is published by the highly reputable Crossway Books speaks of its integrity, and I can personally speak of its breadth and depth. A warning: this is not an easy book to read because it exposes personal areas that need to be addressed through repentance. It is not a theological abstract. Roberts, in typical fashion, with scholarship and compelling examples and illustrations, thoroughly fleshes out the biblical requirement of repentance and calls the reader to practice it.
