His book is easy to read (he has a great sense of humor too) and yet very thought-provoking and carefully researched.

Format: Paperback
This book deserves 5 stars for the use of scripture to back up all of his statements. David Needham explains why we cry for meaning to life, page 23.Why do we have a vague feeling of loneliness and emptyness? Who am I? Becoming a Christian is not just getting something. It is becoming someone. Am I aware of who I really am? Am I aware that the intention of the Holy Spirit is to bring me into the light of the glory of God? see page 194. This book teaches all the basic Biblical truths on the purpose of God for my life and how this can be accomplished. All of this is backed up with scribture. Can I truly say "Yes" to Matthew 22:37?

The best commentary on the Biblical book of Romans ever written. Sheds much-needed light on the controversy over whether we are really new creatures in Christ or whether this is just "positional truth" that does not affect us in our day-to-day living. Needham answers, "Yes!", we are indeed new creatures and can live accordingly.

I read the original Birthright in college over twenty years ago and still have the original book which now has yellowed pages. I highly value Birthright and give new free ones to friends and family as if it were a priceless treasure...which it is. Birthright will start you on a journey in the book of Romans that will change your life. I still re-read Birthright occasionaly and find new nuggets of truth in the Bible to this day. A true Christian identity is hard to find, but I have found it thanks to David C. Needham! Trace F.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Robert W. Kellemen on January 21, 2006
Format: Paperback
"Birthright" is the updated, revised, expanded edition of Needham's earlier work by the same title.

Needham has done Christians a great service in biblically explaining the nature of our new nature in Christ. He teaches from the Scriptures with precision, clarity, and practicality who we are in Christ.

Carefully and graciously, he describes how the notion that Christians are not saints is inadequate. With depth, he demonstrates that the flesh and the old nature/sin nature are not the same.

The result is an increased joy in our regeneration and an increased confidence in sanctification through Christ.

Reviewer: Bob Kellemen, Ph.D., is the author of "Beyond the Suffering: Embracing the Legacy of African American Soul Care and Spiritual Direction," "Soul Physicians" and "Spiritual Friends."

My dad wrote this book, so I am a little biased, but it is a fine work, straight from his heart. It is worth far more than the price Amazon is charging for it. But it today and you won't be sorry.
Good job dad!

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By William M. French on August 12, 2000
Format: Paperback
I have begun a search over the past few years to understand the meaning Spirit (or spirit) in my life. Now that I am Messianic (Christian) and believe in Jesus (Yeshua), the Bible says I am born again. Athought, I have "experienced" this, I also seek to understand this mystery, the mystery "Christ in me the hope of glory". To understand it means I should be able to explain it. My Senior Pastor of a few years ago recommended me this book. Of course, it was the orginal from 20 years ago, but I was glad to wait for this to be published. It has been very helpful, in understanding the Christian life. I once agian experienced the Joy of my salvation and freshness of explaination. Of course Romans itself has been the most helpful reading.

Of all the terrific books I've read, there are only a few to which I return again and again; "Birthright," by David Needham, is on that list. I do not return to it simply to remember a concept, like a reference book. I keep this book close at hand because I need it, again and again.

Needham is a master at clarifying his thoughts on paper. If you have ever wanted to get past the "churchy" terms to understand what the book of Romans is really about, this is a book for you. It especially deals with how we are positionally in our relationship with Christ. Because I found Nedham's commentary to be so rich with truth, I had to read this book slowly so I could savor every morsel. Great book!
