Review

Dr. Steve Lawson is one of the most committed and capable biblical expositors of this generation. The intensity and clarity of his commitment to biblical preaching to true expository preaching is the hallmark of his ministry. Beyond this, Steve Lawson understands that the text of the Bible presents a consistent witness to God's sovereignty and the panoramic display of God's glory. All this is evident in his preaching ministry and in his writing ministry as well. Dr. Lawson is a remarkable man driven by a remarkable passion. --R. Albert Mohler, Jr., President, SBTS

Faithful pastor Steve Lawson, in Foundations of Grace, traverses the rich and varied terrain of the Bible to introduce you to the one true God and his sovereign saving love from the whole of Scripture, in ways that you may never have fully appreciated before. The doctrines of grace and the sovereignty of God are joy-giving, life-changing, Christ-exalting, God-glorifying, missions-motivating, evangelism-encouraging, and discipleship-promoting truths. If you think that the teaching of God s sovereignty in sinners salvation is a man-made idea, you ll think again after you ve walked through the Bible with Dr. Lawson. But beware, this truth, when understood and embraced, is soul-transforming, heart-animating, and life-altering. Dr. Lawson himself is a man changed by this truth. He has boldly and bravely and gladly proclaimed it, at great personal cost, but much to the glory of God, the good of the church, and the joy of sinners who have been found by the amazing grace of God. Prepare to delight in the lovingkindness of the Lord, which lasts forever! --J. Ligon Duncan III, PhD, Senior Minister First Baptist Church, Jackson MS

Format: Hardcover
Steven J. Lawson has begun a project that only be called ambitious. Through a series of five volumes, he has set out to trace the long line of godly men who have taught the foundational truths of God's sovereign grace. He will begin with the Bible itself and the godly men found there and history these individuals throughout history to the present. Lawson begins with this book, Foundations of Grace, which spans the years 1400BC - 100 AD.

Never before to my knowledge has such work been attempted. With such am ambitious goal, my expectations for this book were high. But Lawson did not disappoint.

Lawson begins in chapter 1 - "A Long Line of Godly Men" - with something of an overview of the book. Lawson talks about the foundations of the reformed theology finding root in the Bible itself, and shows briefly how those truths were brought into sharp focus in the reformation, spread throughout Europe, crossed the Atlantic to the Americas and continue to be cherished today. He also traces what these central themes of the reformed faith are - the sovereignty of God in life and salvation, the primacy of the glory of God, man's depravity and need of God's sovereign grace, and the doctrines of grace as a lens to see God's saving work accomplished and applied.

From there in chapters 2-8, Lawson begins with Moses and takes the reader through to the very end of the Old Testament with the Minor Prophets, demonstrating the continuing teaching and belief of these same truths about God, his sovereign grace, and man's need of them.

In many ways, the apex of the book comes in the controversially titled chapter "Christ, the Calvinist" (chapter 9).

Format: Hardcover
Steven Lawson is the senior pastor of Christ Fellowship Baptist Church in Mobile, Ala., and is widely known for his vibrant expository preaching.

This is the first volume in a planned series of five that will chronologically survey 3,500 years of men who believed in and upheld the doctrines of grace. This volume moves through the pages of Scripture and displays more than 40 biblical authors who delighted in the doctrines of grace and God's sovereignty in salvation. Volumes two through five will take their biographical studies from the pages of church history in the following manner:
Volume 2: Pillars of Grace (2nd - 16th centuries)

Volume 3: Forces of Grace (16th - 17th centuries)

Volume 4: Progress of Grace (17th - 19th centuries)

Volume 5: Triumph of Grace (19th century - present)

An excellent 13-page foreword by John MacArthur opened the book with "Divine Immutability and the Doctrines of Grace." He answers the question of "Why did God determine to elect the redeemed?" by showing the inter-Trinitarian relationship of love and promise and glory. I am glad to see this teaching in print because my audio tapes of MacArthur's sermons on these texts (Titus 1:1-2, 2 Timothy 1:9) wore thin from listening to them so much. I think that this Trinity-in-eternity understanding of the "promise of redemption" did more to help establish the beauty of sovereign grace in my mind than any other dimension of the doctrine.

Right from the beginning, Lawson establishes his belief that true revival comes to the church when biblical theology and doxology ignite the church in a flame of passion for the glory of God.

Format: Hardcover
Stephen Lawson corresponds in this sizable book with the Christian who has a thirst for the grace of God. In all its magnificence, the men of faith who grace the Bible of God, is played out before us from the theocentric view of God. Beginning with Moses the lawgiver, Lawson delves into their lives as represented to us in the Word. Drawing out texts, Lawson reveals the 'ability of God' (grace) in their lives as sovereign, thereby resulting in what God determines. The aspect of our understanding that most lacks fruitfulness in this regard, is our limited view of time and life. God purposes and determines all man's ways. Illustrated time and again, Lawson beautifully resonates the heavenly directive will of God, brought to bear in the lives of the men of faith, linking generations of godly leadership.

'Regeneration is open-heart surgery, a soul-reviving work of the Spirit that probes to the deepest level of a person's being.' p 97

'Despite Israel's unfaithfulness God continued to call forth a chosen remnant from within the nation to be His elect people.' p 95

Yes, the doctrines of grace are expounded in true Calvinistic form, for therein the glory of God is brought to bear most beautifully: he systematically and extensively highlights the doctrines through-out the book, employing a helpful section heading denoting the particular doctrine under discussion. A likeable feature are the references throughout to expositors and Bible teachers, from Matthew Henry to John MacArthur, and an extensive Scripture index reveals a comprehensive and healthy respect for the Word. Lawson makes easy and light reading of a difficult topic, and reduces our intellect to that which it rightfully is: only enlightened once grace has entered our sinful lives.
