Overview

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.

    as only dr. sproul can do

    this is one of the finest introductory books on the historical doctrine that split rome with the reformers... the book is concise and easy to read coming from an apt teacher who always seems to make difficult concepts easy to understand which is the true art of a teacher...this book should be read by all christians, especially evangelicals who have departed from their reformation heritage...this doctrine is, as luther said, that which the church stands or falls on.

    Back to the foundations

    R.C. shows how mainstream evangelicalism has forgotten its roots, and how many professing evangelicals have compromised the integrity of the Gospel based on faith alone in Christ alone by grace alone for the glory of God alone.

    Another good one from R.C.

    I'm an admitted fan of Sproul, and definately enjoyed this work. While not always the easiest of reading, it raises and addresses important issues about faith, grace, works, salvation, and justification. An excellent resource for those seeking a greater understanding of the underlying issues of the protestant reformation.
