“I found this book and bought it to give it a chance. The author always tries to use the sum of God’s word, and not only some isolated verses taken out of context. Also, he doesn’t only use the New Testament passages, but also the Old Testament passages of all the prophets! The structure is good, all the topics are presented and discussed in great detail and it is easy to follow the arguments, even for a non-native English speaker like me. I absolutely don’t regret that I’ve bought this book, because it helped me to put together a lot of puzzle pieces. I will definitely continue to use it as a help alongside my Bible for further studies.”
