An exhaustive analysis of the doctrine of justification by faith alone. . . . There are plenty of people. . . who in their concern for "togetherness" are in danger of marginalising the gospel. It is to such people that Sproul speaks. The book is not a light read, but it is interesting and the author has taken care to provide plenty of helps in hard places. . . .it is certainly a book that many of us need to read today. Highly commended -- Mike Adams
Dr. Sproul writes with clarity and regularly shows the implications of his propositions. . . .his primary purpose was to give his readers a solid understanding of justification by faith alone and what is at stake in defending this great doctrine. This he has done, and those committed to the infallible Scriptures need to understand and appreciate it -- Calvin R. Malcor
In a day of rampant theological confusion and compromise, R. C. Sproul provides a voice of conviction deeply rooted in biblical truth and the faithful heritage of the gospel. He makes clear what is at stake in current patterns of evangelical compromise-the gospel itself -- R. Albert Mohler, Jr., president, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
R. C. Sproul has done a masterful job of reminding us of the true nature of the gospel. Faith Alone is one of the most important books to be published in this decade -- Jerry Bridges, The Navigators Community Ministry Group
The doctrine of justification is at the heart of everything. When theres an assault on the doctrine of salvation, we would expect Sproul to stand up on the front lines. As a stalwart, he has done just that in Faith Alone. With characteristic clarity he marshals historical and biblical defense against those who would undermine the foundation of orthodoxy and tolerate another gospel -- John Macarthur, president, The Masters College and Seminary
The evangelical church is in a perilous condition, even to the point of abandoning the gospel which brought it into being. In this timely and relevant book, R. C. Sproul recalls us to the true apostolic gospel, justification by grace alone through faith alone because of Christ alone -- James M. Boice, pastor, Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia
From the Back Cover
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.
"Sola fide (faith alone) was the material principle of the Protestant Reformation. Today's evangelicals tend to be unversed in Scripture and ignorant of their own history, so they are generally ill equipped to defend what they profess to believe. Dr. Sproul has probably done more than anyone in our generation to reconnect contemporary evangelicals with their own rich history. In particular, he has been courageously defending the doctrine of justification for several decades. This book distills the best of his teaching on that issue. It's an important defense of the gospel's cardinal principle in a clear and compelling format. I'm happy to give it my most enthusiastic recommendation."--John MacArthur, author; speaker; pastor; president, The Master's College and Seminary
"For as long as R. C. Sproul has been involved in public ministry, he has stood firm against theological error while battling boldly for doctrinal truth. In Faith Alone, he demonstrates the critical importance of affirming and protecting that great Reformation doctrine of justification by grace alone, through faith alone. Always respectful toward others, he proceeds carefully, biblically, and with unrelenting force. This book remains as important and relevant today as when it was first published."--Tim Challies, blogger; author; pastor, Grace Fellowship Church, Toronto, Ontario
