Overview

Though the Christian church has achieved a worldly sort of success-big numbers, big budgets, big outreaches-attendance is declining, and it is increasingly difficult to distinguish so-called "believers" from their non-Christian neighbors. In other words, these are not good days for evangelicalism.

The late James Montgomery Boice believed that our ignorance of God and neglect of the gospel of grace is the root of the problem. But he also believed that full-scale revival can be ignited in this generation if God's people will forego the spirit of the age and recover their commitment to the confessional statements of the Reformation-Scripture alone, Christ alone, grace alone, faith alone, and glory to God alone.

"A church without these convictions has ceased to be a true church, whatever else it may be," he wrote, but "if we hold to these doctrines, our churches and those we influence will grow strong."

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher
"Boice was right to point out that to mischaracterize worldliness 'is to trivialize what is a far more serious and far more subtle problem.'"
Burnside Writer's CollectiveBurnside Writer's Collective

"Boice explains how the five doctrinal truths that transformed the world during the Reformation not only offer the solution but can shape a renewal today among God's people."
