Faith Alone: The Evangelical Doctrine of Justification

Status: Available

Faith Alone The Evangelical Doctrine of JustificationBook Description

The Reformers broke with the Roman Catholic Church when they insisted that people are justified by faith alone. Today, many Protestants fail to grasp that keystone of faith, and yet the biblical, Reformation view of the doctrine of justification is vital for us to grasp the power of the gospel and proclaim it far and wide. In Faith Alone, R. C. Sproul clearly explains the doctrine of salvation, including why Protestantism and Roman Catholicism split over justification in the first place and why that division remains an uncrossed chasm.

The Spirit of Revival: Discovering the Wisdom of Jonathan Edwards

Spirit of Revival CoverStatus: Available

Publisher’s Description

America is gripped in an ongoing war that has divided our nation over issues of sexual morality, the relation between church and state, the collapse of the family unit, the emergence of a drug culture, and a radical change in the customs of polite speech. Because of this cultural war, America desperately needs revival.

In The Spirit of Revival R.C. Sproul and Archie Parrish take the classic work by Jonathan Edwards, The Distinguishing Marks of a Work of the Spirit of God, and make it more accessible to the common reader. Edwards’ original discourse is carefully broken down into powerful sections, allowing theologians and the common lay worker the opportunity to recognize the true marks of revival: love and humility.

Saved From What?

Saved From What CoverStatus: Available

Book Description

Saved From What? is a penetrating look by well-known pastor and teacher R. C. Sproul at what the Bible really teaches about the nature of salvation.

Christians speak of “being saved,” but all too often don’t follow the phrase to its logical reply: “Saved from what?” How do we answer this question when we share the gospel with others? Far from being a matter of semantics, the issue holds critical importance for believers and non-believers alike. Is it really sufficient to say that we are saved from our sins?

R. C. Sproul uses Scripture to show that the question, in its most important sense, should be phrased, “Saved from whom?” The answer: God himself. God, in righteous wrath, stands against us in our sin. But the glory of the gospel is that the one from whom we need to be saved is the very one who saves us. It is when we truly grasp the significance of Christ’s redeeming work that we begin to understand the serious demands and joys of repentance. Thoughtful readers will be strengthened and challenged by this insightful volume. Now available in paperback.

The Holiness of God

Holiness of God CoverStatus: Available

Book Description

Central to God’s character is the quality of holiness. Yet, even so, most people are hard-pressed to define what God’s holiness precisely is. Many preachers today avoid the topic altogether because people today don’t quite know what to do with words like “awe” or “fear.” R. C. Sproul, in this classic work, puts the holiness of God in its proper and central place in the Christian life. He paints an awe-inspiring vision of God that encourages Christian to become holy just as God is holy. Once you encounter the holiness of God, your life will never be the same.

Getting the Gospel Right: The Tie that Binds Evangelicals Together

Getting the Gospel Right CoverStatus: Available

Book Description

Christian unity is important. And unity in the gospel is essential. Yet that unity was tested by the release of two documents, Evangelicals and Catholics Together and The Gift of Salvation, which appeared to surrender the historic doctrine of sola fide (faith alone). Then a new level of unity was achieved with the release of a statement called The Gospel of Jesus Christ: An Evangelical Celebration.

This sequel to Sproul’s popular Faith Alone contains the complete text of The Gospel of Jesus Christ along with thorough, point-by-point discussion and exposition. The significance of this affirmation is summed up by Christianity Today: “A number of people have been stunned by the broad acceptance of this statement.” It has been signed by “Methodist and Presbyterian, Pentecostal and cessationist, Baptist, Lutheran, Anglican, and free church” leaders.

As Sproul explains, unity in the gospel touches the soul of the church itself and all of its members. “To be faithful to the Great Commission,” writes Sproul, “we must get the gospel right.”

Faith Alone: The Evangelical Doctrine of Justification

Faith Alone The Evangelical Doctrine of JustificationStatus: Available

Publisher’s Description

What can we add to God’s mercy to be saved? The Reformers broke with the Roman Church when they answered that Christians are justified by faith alone. But evangelicals no longer seem certain about that keystone of faith.

In Faith Alone, a Gold Medallion finalist and Evangelical Book Club main selection, R. C. Sproul discerns a softening of the doctrine of justification and explains why Christians must return to the biblical, Reformation view. He provides biblical evidence and theological reasons why Protestantism and Roman Catholicism divided in the first place, and why that division remains an uncrossed chasm.

Now in paperback, Faith Alone offers a clear explanation of classic Protestant teaching on salvation, helping readers understand why this teaching is so important.

Chosen by God

Chosen By God Cover

Status: Available

Publisher’s Description

With nearly 200,000 copies sold in its 25 years, Chosen by God is a contemporary classic on predestination, a doctrine that isn’t just for Calvinists, says Sproul. It is a doctrine for all biblical Christians.

In this updated and expanded edition Sproul shows that the doctrine of predestination doesn’t create a whimsical or spiteful picture of God, but paints a portrait of a loving God who provides redemption for radically corrupt humans. We choose God because he has opened our eyes to see his beauty; we love him because he first loved us. There is mystery in God’s ways, but not contradiction.
