Nickel's work was one of the books the Lord used over a decade ago to bring me to a reformed understanding of the Faith. The book was a watershed for me then. Now, this 2nd and expanded edition, is even more thorough in its explanation of the Christian worldview and application to all of life. Currently, I have the pleasure of not only enjoying the book again, but reading through it with my oldest son. God is very good!
