Richard Owen Robert's book is a very in-depth, yet practical and readable study on the need and necessity for godly repentance both for lost humanity and for the church of Jesus Christ. It helped my understanding of true repentance so much that I bought copies for my whole Bible Study class.
WOW, this book is FANTASTIC! I look back when I was first saved and how I cried many years, and still do today recalling how Jesus Christ saved me. It was not until a year or so later I learned what (Repentance) was. I did not hear it preached, but kept seeing it in the bible and realized that the Lord had granted me repentance II Tim. 2:25. This book is an INCREDIBLE study on repentance, and a MUST for any student of the bible or bible study. This is the best book I have ever read outside the bible and I recommend it to anyone who cant understand why their church members are apathetic about living a holy and righteous life before Almighty God. Its simple; they have NEVER repented and believed the gospel and without repentance, no man shall see God. Acts 17:30; 2:37-38; II Cor. 7:9-11; Luke 13:3,5; Matt. 3:1-2; 4:17; II Tim. 2:25. Shortly after I was saved I could not understand why people were so apathetic about the gospel, but learned that most people today believe that saying a prayer, walking an isle, inviting Jesus in their hearts, getting rededicated for the x number of times, or getting baptized saves them, NOT SO! Its only by true repentance that one is saved.
Roberts' book is the most thorough treatment of repentance I have yet seen. I came away from it with a strong conviction to devote more of my own preaching to this great biblical theme. Roberts is strong stuff. I recommend this practical, biblical work to every preacher and follower of Christ.
