The Reformation's Conflict with Rome - Why it Must Continue
His book "The Reformation's Conflict with Rome" is succinct but highly informative especially with regards to a truthful assessment concerning the modern rapprochement between two differing bodies of belief systems (faith alone vs.faith "plus" or "and" good works).
Dr. Raymond represents and promotes a classic protestant and reformed theological position which I am not in agreement with. But I do believe there is great value and insight in this book.
