Protestants may not fully understand concepts like sola scriptura, effectual calling, faith & works, and assurances of salvation. Sproul explains these matters in superb detail with in the framework of this original Christian document.
As one previously unfamiliar with the details of Westminster confession, I can say that Sproul has me fired up with this commentary series. Sproul has reanimated the old words for the modern seeker. The Confession, in 3 volumes, is a gem to be discovered by the aggressive God-seeker. The Confession and Sproul's insight puts a lot of the pieces together ... it is rich fertilizer for enriching Christian thought.
Volume two covers the next fourteen chapters of the Westminster Confession. The volume being reviewed is titled Salvation and the Christian Life: A very fine exposition of these fourteen chapters of the confession as written by RC Sproul. The book gives a thorough explanation both defining and explaining: Free Will, Effectual Calling, Justification, Adoption, Sanctification, Saving Faith and Repentance? Besides the elements of Salvation made clear and distinguished, RC Sproul explains how the Christian heart should be made effective in seeking God's Will upon Salvation. How the Westminster Confession distinguishes the term "Good Works" means to the Christian in contrast to Roman Catholic teaching? What is the difference between a `Saint's Faith that will persevere' and to have assurance of Faith? What is antinomianism? What is Legalism? How does the confession teach against both? What is the relationship of the Christian walk and God's Law? What does Christian liberty truly mean? What is a God fearing conscience? What is a worldly conscience? How is a Christian to seek God's will? Included is a discussion distinguishing God centered worship and a me centered worship?
A book written for the mature Christian.
