Christ the Lord: The Reformation and Lordship Salvation

Format: Digital
ISBN: 9781606083680


Michael Horton, a preeminent voice for reformation in the church, has drawn together a group of leaders in the Reformed and Lutheran traditions to weigh in on the free grace and Lordship positions on salvation. Offering a “Reformation response” to these controversies, the writers draw on Scripture, theology, and church history to address the issue from a mainly historical perspective. They explain their positions clearly, finding a path between legalism and antinomian feelings.
