Welcome back to another episode of Five Minutes in Church History.


My name is not Steve Nichols.


My name is Lee Webb and yes I'm the retired host of renewing your mind and if you've joined


us in previous episodes you know that Dr. Nichols after I retired decided to send me


off to a deserted island and now I've returned to this deserted island.


I brought the books that I chose to take with me to the deserted island now I've returned and


don't you think that turned about his fair play?


I think so. So here I am back in the studio Dr. Nichols welcome to your podcast Five Minutes


in Church History and the deserted island edition.


Thanks for having me Lee. I am very much enjoying this position as guest and not host.


Well it turned about his fair play and you've been warned that you were going to be sent


off to this deserted island and warned Lee I have been waiting for this my whole life.


I can't wait to get to this deserted island.


And so you you've been able now to think about this and select the books that you would like


to take with you. Let's start with the first book.


So the first book I'm going to take is a commentary on the book. It's commentary on Romans.


It is by John Murray the longtime Scottish professor at my alma mater Westminster Theological


Seminary. This way I get to just spend time in Romans and spend time with Murray.


Who's brilliant? I mean he's brilliant at the textual exegesis and exposition at the historical


cultural stuff and especially at the theology of the book of Romans. So I've got a brand new


edition here. It's a nice hardback and I see myself already enjoying this book.


And Romans 828 will be a great comfort to you right today.
