The Cross Focused Reviewers share their thoughts on 90 Days in John 14-17, Romans & James by Timothy Keller & Sam Allberry.

“I look forward to working slowly through this book over a 90 day period so I can soak up all of these benefits and more. I couldn’t more highly recommend a 90-day daily devotional!”
Reviewer: Chrys Jones
Rating: 5 Stars

“I would personally recommend the Explore by the Book series and specially this volume to anyone looking for a resource to guide them in personal study. The guided but flexible format allows the resource to be tailored to everyone’s learning style and schedule.”
Reviewer: Zach Kendrick
Rating: 4 Stars

“Keller and Allberry do a great job in leading the reader through the pages of the Bible. This book is not meant to take the place of deep Bible study, but to give everyone a taste in reading and studying the Bible on a deeper level… I am looking forward to see more devotionals like this one.”
Reviewer: Chris Land
Rating: 5 Stars

“I do recommend this book for anyone desiring to study the Bible. Personally, my church is going through the book of Romans this year and I have found the section on Romans to be quite helpful for that. I am thankful for good tools like this that help you faithfully and correctly study the Bible.”
Reviewer: Angela Parsley
Rating: 5 Stars

“Keller and Allberry say that obedience to God is a sign that we have genuinely been saved and that not all who profess to be Christians are actual Christians. I think that the two ideas run contrary to each other, at least in terms of the psychological effect that they can have on the believer. The first idea is comforting, the second, not so much. The tension is understandable, though, considering the different biblical texts with which Keller and Allberry are interacting, and the co-existing themes of grace and practical righteousness within the Bible.”

“I highly recommend you grab a copy of 90 Days in John 14-17, Romans, James, or one of the other volumes in this series. You’ll be glad you did!”
Reviewer: Jeff Randleman
Rating: 5 Stars

“Great content. Great format. I really cannot think of any reason that these volumes should not be at the top of any Christians to-be-read list.”
Reviewer: Josh Skinner
Rating: 4 Stars

“If your Bible study is done with the use of devotionals, you need this one. Brief and to the point…”
Reviewer: Bledi Valca
Rating: 4 Stars

“This is a wonderful devotional and study book for anyone and especially for those newer to the Scriptures. The format helps in keeping one organized and the study method is very effective and enjoyable.”
Reviewer: Joanne Viola
Rating: 5 Stars

“I encourage you to get a copy of this, or any in the series… if you are needing a boost to your devotional life this is a good one because it forces you to get into the Bible for yourself. And when you get into the Bible for yourself the Word of God will do the work of God, conforming you to the image of Jesus.”
Reviewer: Ben Wilson
Rating: 5 Stars

“This is my first exposure to the Explore by the Book series but given the quality of this devotional it will be a series I explore further. If you’re looking for a devotional that will aid that will attract you to the word rather than distract you this should be at the top of your list.”
Reviewer: Steven Dresen
Rating: 5 Stars

“This is precisely the kind of devotional I like to start my day with.”
Reviewer: Mandy Johnson
Rating: 5 Stars

Explore by the Book is a wonderful concept that is best used with the hardback edition of the book and a physical copy of your Bible open.”
Reviewer: Bill Pence
Rating: 4 Stars

“As far as a devotional is concerned I think this is an excellent option. Structurally it stands out from most other devotionals in that it is hardbound and yet contains the blank ruled page for the reader to interact with the day’s text. It also stands out from many other devotionals in its doctrinal emphasis and pastoral application. I personally think this would be an excellent book to use as a family and would only require a quick “on the fly” simplification of a few words or a kid-friendly interpretation here and there for any younger children.”
Reviewer: Aaron Cerda
Rating: 4 Stars

“All in all, this looks like a helpful tool for the believer who appreciates some guidance for times of private worship.”
Reviewer: Ben Franks
Rating: 4 Stars

“This devotional is designed to cause the reader to deal with the text of scripture before dealing with the content added by the authors. They want to engage the reader with the words of God and in so doing, want to effect a change of heart as one sees the beauty and clarity of the revelation of God.”
Reviewer: Don Haflich
Rating: 4 Stars

“This book would make a great gift for someone you know who wants to study the Bible but doesn’t know how, or doesn’t have much time to sit and do a regular study. What a great tool!”
Reviewer: Alex Houston
Rating: 4 Stars

“Keller and Allberry go through the four chapters in John and Romans and James verse-by-verse highlighting important events and topics that will help you apply God’s Word to your life and situation.”
Reviewer: Jill Jones
Rating: 4 Stars

“Perhaps the greatest value of the book is the help it offers in thinking about how scripture should be understood and applied. The model employed might be applied to any Biblical text. In other words, the book helps one understand how to take the raw Biblical text and think about how it should look in one’s life.”
Reviewer: Mark Lugg
Rating: 5 Stars

“I love the Bible. The upper room discourses & Jesus’ high priestly prayer, the book of Romans and James, contain some of my go-to passages. If you are looking for a devotional or guided study to discover these sections of scripture, this is a good choice.”
Reviewer: James Matichuk
Rating: 4 Stars

“I would highly recommend this book and have already given a copy away to a newer believer and may be buying more. A great resource thank you!!!”
Reviewer: Jonathan Roberts
Rating: 5 Stars

Explore By The Book: 90 Days in John 14-17, Romans, and James will lead the reader into a great understanding of what God’s Word means and how it can be applied in life. What many devotionals lack, The Good Book company has produced in Explore By The Book. If you are a Christian who desires substance in their Bible reading, then pick up a copy of this volume.”
Reviewer: Theron St. John
Rating: 5 Stars

“This book would be useful as a light, very basic introduction to those important portions of Scripture. Also format and production qualities are good.”
Reviewer: Douglas Wallace
Rating: 3 Stars

“Keller & Allberry do great work in exposition of each text to confirm proper biblical interpretation so that clear and whole application takes place in the reader’s life. This is another great resource to get you into God’s Word so that God’s Word gets into you.”

Romans 1-7 For You by Tim KellerThis week the Cross Focused Reviewers are participating in a book review blog tour for Romand 1-7 For You by Timothy Keller. Excerpts and links to the reviews will appear below as they are available:

“The style of writing is sermonic—clear explanation coupled with heart-penetrating application. It serves both as a model for Bible study and for sermon prep. It inspired in me the same kind of delight I have had in the best Bible studies that I can remember having participated in.”
Reviewer: Andrew Wencl (andrewwencl.blogspot.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“If you have ever wondered what exactly all the discussion about Romans 1-7 was about and how it relates to you as a believer, Keller’s Romans 1-7 For You is an excellent place to start your journey through Romans.”
Reviewer: Michael Boling (IntelMin.org)
Rating: 5 Stars

“I would highly recommend this easy to read commentary to any believer to supplement their study of Romans 1-7. It’s size and style is neither highly technical or overbearing, but rather easy to read and separated into small manageable portions.”
Reviewer: Joey Parker (parkerjreviews.blogspot.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“Allow Keller’s insights in Romans 1-7 For You to inform your study. Glean helpful insights and illustrations to use in sermons or small group studies. But even as you do, read it with the good of your soul in mind, recognizing afresh all Christ has done on your behalf, and grasping anew the glory of the gospel in Romans.”
Reviewer: Aaron Armstrong (bloggingtheologically.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“Despite his reputation in some reformed circles, Keller does a very strong study of Romans 6 and the balance of law and grace. In fact, the study of that chapter is some of the most balanced language I have ever read on the subject, walking the razor thin line between legalism and antinomianism in a faithful and biblical way.”
Reviewer: Coralie Cowan (lifemoreabundant.me)
Rating: 5 Stars

“This book is great for anyone longing for a deeper understanding of Romans as well as life-change by the gospel. Very few books do a good job of being both devotional and exegetical/theological; Romans 1-7 For You accomplishes this. You will come away from this book with both a clearer understanding of what the biblical texts mean, as well as greater love for God and a greater desire for grace-empowered obedience.”
Reviewer: Jennifer Guo (jenniferguo.wordpress.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“I would commend Romans 1-7 For You to anyone looking to work through Romans. It’s handy for personal devotional use, basic teaching, or as another source alongside your heavy reference works. It does not replace a good, academic commentary, but supplements one nicely.”
Reviewer: Doug Hibbard (doughibbard.com)
Rating: 4 Stars

Romans 1-7 For You is a great place to start for personal or group study. I look forward to reading the next book on Romans by Keller.”

Rating: 5 Stars

“Whether you are a new Christian or a seasoned student of Romans, Romans 1-7 For You will help you learn what Romans teaches and the importance of its message to your daily life. I highly recommend this resource on romans and pray the Lord uses it to help lay readers into understand Romans 1-7.”
Reviewer: Dave Jenkins (ServantsOfGrace.org)
Rating: 5 Stars

“Keller is one of my favorite pastor-theologians. He does a great job of explaining the text. I certainly appreciated walking through Romans again (reading it along side my Bible). I think that it will serve as a helpful teachers resource for anyone seeking to hand on the truths of this Epistle. As I got to the end of the book, I was disappointed that I have to wait to see how Keller treats the last half of Romans (which has some truly fantastic and difficult to understand stuff). I eagerly await the next installment!”

Romans 1-7 for You is a fantastic little resource, and I feel confident giving it a high recommendation.”

“I highly recommend that you grab a copy of Romans 1-7 For You. It doesn’t matter if you use it as a sermon resource, or for personal study, you will benefit greatly from this incredibly helpful resource.”
Reviewer: Jeff Randleman (jeffrandleman.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“Like Phillip accompanying the Ethiopian eunuch, who was lost in the confusion of Isaiah, Pastor Keller sits down with the reader and in a very palatable way, offering his insight and explanation. It is not a commentary on Romans, it is not even a devotional on Romans, it is in fact a pastoral guide through a very important section of Scripture so that the reader can be both enlightened and compelled to heed the Gospel’s call.”
Reviewer: Ryan Rickard (declinationblog.wordpress.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“Keller does not stop with his explanation of the text, but moves on to explaining both theological and practical issues raised in the text.”
Reviewer: Scott Slayton (ScottSlayton.net)
Rating: 5 Stars

“Keller’s study Romans 1-7 for You is truly a gift to its readers that points to Christ as the Author of our story.”
Reviewer: Mike Tiede (VickiTiede.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“This expository guide through the first half of Romans by Pastor Tim Keller is a helpful synthesis of Paul’s Epistle with an eye toward the pastoral and practical implications of the gospel.”
Reviewer: Spencer Cummins (spencerdeancummins.blogspot.com)
Rating: 4 Stars

“I have yet to see a more exciting and accessible resource to help lay-level readers genuinely study (and not simply think about) God’s Word – even as challenging a portion of God’s Word as the epistle to the Romans!”
Reviewer: Josh Dear (joshdear.wordpress.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“The book’s accessibility, Keller’s obvious love for Jesus, and his emphasis on personal application all commend it, though I’d also suggest using it in tandem with something else (Moo and Stott come to mind, both listed in Keller’s bibliography) for the sake of balance and thoroughness.”
Reviewer: Abram Kielsmeier-Jones (abramkj.com)
Rating: 3 Stars

“This book works great as a reference tool, but was designed to be read straight through too. I read it that way and found it a devotional feast. Many volumes billed for such usage usually fail at one or the other, but where they failed this volume succeeds.”
Reviewer: Jimmy Reagan (reaganreview.wordpress.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“All in all, the series is a great concept, and in this third book of the series Keller has in my opinion done an outstanding job of helping us better know and love what God said, who God is and what God has done.”
Reviewer: Paul Reynolds (paultimothyreynolds.blogspot.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“This book is a must have for anyone wishing to have a better gospel-perspective from the book of Romans. It is well worth your time reading wherever you are in your theological growth.”
Reviewer: Kevin Thompson (kevinjthompson.wordpress.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“Keller engages the important doctrinal truths of Romans and explains them in ways that the reader can easily grasp. These truths are foundational to one’s understanding of the gospel. Keller knows this and puts the cookies on the bottom shelf without compromising the integrity of the message.”
Reviewer: Cliff VanNostrand (vannostrand.wordpress.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“I will be completely transparent with you about my experiences reading anything from Keller. Typically, I begin one of his books feeling that I am in a healthy place spiritually. A chapter or so in one his books and I find myself repenting for sin issues in my own life that I need to overcome through God’s spirit. My experience with Romans 1-7 For You is no different. Included in the appendix of the book is a section on Identifying the Idols of the Heart. It is powerful. Heart-rending. Life-changing.”
Reviewer: Sharra Badgley (thehomeschoolmarm.blogspot.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

Romans 1-7 For You is an accessible, and deep, commentary on one of the most impactful books of the Bible.  The pastoral care and nurture flowing from each page of Keller’s book is a needed breath of fresh air in the world of commentaries on Romans.  No matter if you are a new Christian, or have been saved for 50+ years, this commentary will help you grow deeper in your walk with God and develop a greater appreciation for the Savior who redeemed you with His precious blood.”
Reviewer: Joshua Davis (servantsofgracebookreviews.org)
Rating: 5 Stars

“His position on Romans 7 is that it describes the struggles believers continue to face after salvation. Keller is careful not to force the reader into a theological mold but encourages them to see the text and feed on it. His practical insight and emphasis on application combine to provide a commentary that doesn’t stop with the head but moves to the heart quickly. It can be read as a devotional book with benefit, or used as a text for an adult Sunday School class or small group study. I highly recommend it.”
