Justification by Grace

  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 2013
  • Pages: 240

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In this volume, Brian Vickers argues that justification is God’s declaration that sinners are made right with him through faith in Christ—whose life, death, and resurrection provide forgiveness and the righteousness God desires for his people. Vickers traces how the doctrine unfolds in Scripture, showing that in Christ, God provides everything needed for sinners to be made right with him. Upholding the practical impact of this doctrine, he argues that a biblical understanding of justification will combat legalism, lawlessness, pride, and despair.

With breathtaking scope Vickers traces Christ’s imputed righteousness from the pages of Genesis all the way to Paul and James.

A. Andrew Das, Donald W. and Betty J. Buik Chair and Professor of Religious Studies, Elmhurst College, Elmhurst, IL

Vickers’ new work is to be warmly welcomed. Here we find a clear and accessible and—most importantly—biblical restatement of what the Scriptures teach about justification.

In The Elder: Today’s Ministry Rooted in All of Scripture, Cornelius Van Dam traces the origins of the biblical elder to the days prior to the New Testament—ancient Israel. Carefully unpacking the enduring principles that guided the elder in antiquity, Van Dan shows how those same principles should guide the church today.

I heartily recommend this book for current elders, elders-in-training, aspiring elders, and those who seek to be blessed by their labors.

The Nearness of God: His Presence with His People

  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 272

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

To many people, God is an abstract figure who set the world running, but is now largely absent from it. In the Bible, however, God is not only center-stage—he is intimately involved with his people. In The Nearness of God: His Presence with His People Lanier Burns shows that at each stage of the unfolding story of God and his people, God’s presence is never far away.

This is an encouraging and helpful book by an insightful and seasoned scholar. Readers will find their theology deepened, their hope rekindled, and their joy increased.
