What People are saying about this

From the Publisher

"In a world where the biblical depiction of Christ is often distorted or denied, this book serves as a tremendous defense of orthodox Christian belief. But its value is more than just apologetic. Its Christ-centered focus makes For Us and for Our Salvation a recommended read for anyone who wants a clear picture of the Savior."
John MacArthur, Pastor, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California; President, The Master's College and Seminary

"With clarity and brevity, Stephen Nichols presents the intriguing development of the doctrine of Christ over the early centuries of the church. His account of the key councils and theological proposals is written in a very simple and readable style, and the reader is made aware of how much was at stake 'for us and for our salvation' in these very crucial debates."
Bruce A. Ware, T. Rupert and Lucille Coleman Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"By interweaving original sources and explanatory chapters, Nichols has given us a genre of historical theology that is both informative and interesting."
Millard J. Erickson, Distinguished Professor of Theology, Western Seminary, Portland

"A wonderfully readable book about one of the most important eras of the Christian church. I would encourage everyone-pastors, teachers, students, and laymen-to 'take and read.'"
Brian Vickers, Assistant Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"A great idea and a valuable contribution to the church. Stephen Nichols provides a wise selection of classic excerpts on the doctrine of Christ, and he places them in the context of a readable story with helpful explanations that ordinary Christians can follow."
Dan Treier, Associate Professor of Theology, Wheaton College
