Supernatural Living for Natural People: The Life-giving message of Romans 8
Romans eight is a favourite of many Christians for it contains verse after verse of pure spiritual gold. It opens up to us peace with God, the ministries of the Spirit, the urgency of personal reformation, the glory of our eternal inheritance, the power of God’s goodness at work in our daily lives and the invincibility of his loving intentions toward us.
In this thoughtful and perceptive book, Ray Ortlund delves deeply into Romans 8. Our appreciation and understanding of the chapter will be thoroughly revitalized.
“Ray’s confidence in the power of the Spirit-energized Word of God shows forth on every page of this wonderful, Christ-exalting study of Romans 8. Get it. Then let it get you!”(Sam Storms)
On the front cover, Eric Alexander tells us that this is a good book. On the back cover, he is joined by five other authorities, who tell us the same. And they are all correct – the book is to be whole-heartedly recommended.(Evangelical Times)
“The overwhelming impact of this study is to fill us again with wonder at the greatness of God and the greatness of the salvation he gives to all who come to him through Christ.”(Mark Johnston)
“Dr. Ortlund mines the depths of this chapter, but what he produces is a book of such practical and spiritual riches as we seldom read today.”(Eric Alexander)
“rarely will one find a pastor as keenly informed on the biblical languages, historic theology, current issues, as thoroughly committed to a ministry of the Word in proclamation and print, and as lovingly sensitive to the souls of his parishioners as is the author of this book.”(Tom J. Nettles)
Here exegetical skill is employed with the practical day-to-day life of the believer always in plain focus. I heartily commend this valuable work to both pastors and lay people alike.(John Armstrong)
“Ray Ortlund in his exposition of Romans 8 has succeeded in weaving together both truth and application, both theology and the realities of everyday life.”(Thomas R. Schreiner)
