Superb
Really helpful in getting to the crux of the book and summarising the main points. Thank God for clear teaching like this.

A tease for more!
Just like Judges For You, Timothy Keller writes another great exposition of the book of Romans to you. The book is richer in theology (well, it is based on the book of Romans, after all) compared to Judges For You but it should serve only as an “appetizer” for you to read the whole book of Romans in the bible and study them yourselves.

The book is almost 6 hours long, but you probably won’t notice it. Timothy Keller successfully transfers the study and application of the book of Romans in words that you can relate and understand. He also discusses current controversial topics such as homosexuality and what the Word of God has to say about it. In the end, though, I feel that the book is just not enough to cover the whole book of Romans 1-7 thoroughly, except for the essentials (which is probably not a bad idea unless if you want to listen to a 20-hour audiobook).

Like Judges For You, Timothy writes out reflection questions at the end of each chapter, which helps you to ponder on God’s Word and applies it to your daily lives. The questions also help you to dig deeper and grasp the truth about sin, God’s righteousness, and God’s grace to mankind.

The Narrator, Maurice England, does a great job in delivering the book into your ears. He pauses briefly and tries to use different intonations during the read to keep things interesting. However, he definitely can’t be compared to Timothy Keller’s charisma (I’ve seen him speaking a few times) and I’m positive that the audiobook will be so much better if Timothy Keller himself can narrate it himself.

not a perfect pair
England's narration is one that is not easy to miss. With a characteristic, slightly husky, voice, England commands attention of the audience by stating the facts more so than waxing over them. Each sentence he narrates carries an authority to it that pairs up well with Keller's works. Combining an authoritative writer with an authoritative narrator provides one option: an authoritative audiobook.

With this in mind, the content presented is right up the alley of Keller's works and what one would expect of him. However, with this content in mind, perhaps a smoother voice would be best. Given the studious nature of the material, England's narration for this particular text does not enhance my understanding, but rather overwhelms my ears. Give England a speech from the Awakening and he's set. This work is not one of those speeches. While the writing does establish facts, it is better suited for an academic feel that allows individuals to relax while reading, not sit up, stressed and anxious.

In all, three stars. England does a great job. Keller does a great job. For this exact title, however, they don't match as well as one would hope.
