Practical Lectures on Romans : Greatest Book in the Bible
This is the climax of God's revelation of His will to a lost world, and given through the greatest mind of all times. What a blessing it has been to my soul, these studies, made on our tour clear around the world. I studied it night and day. It was my meditation on land and sea. Whether in the snow-capped majestic Alps or in the desert sands of Arabia, whether in the storms of the Atlantic, or in the quiet calm of the "Pacific, my soul fairly rejoiced in this the greatest, the highest mountain peak of divine revelation. Often I would bow my head in humiliation, confess my sins, that I would ever complain or hesitate one second's time to proclaim the gospel of the Son of God. I could wish I could roll back the hands of time and begin once more the simple ministry of an earnest country preacher.

About J Frank Norris
J. Frank Norris was born in Dadeville, Alabama. He was graduated from Baylor University in Waco, Texas, and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. He was ordained to the ministry in 1899 and soon after began his long, stormy career by serving as editor of The Baptist Standard, the official voice of Texas Baptists. He aided Dr. B.H. Carroll in the founding of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. In 1909 he accepted the pastorate of the First Baptist Church of Fort Worth and remained there until his death. In 1935 he also accepted the pastorate of Temple Baptist Church, Detroit, Michigan, and held joint pastorates of these two great churches separated geographically 1,300 miles for 15 years. During those years, the combined attendance of both churches, under the leadership of one pastor, constituted the world's largest Sunday School.
