The Marrow of Modern Divinity takes a detailed look at the redemptive-historical and covenantal understanding of the Gospel as well as practical direction for living the Christian life. Edward Fisher’s book also gives an in-depth account of the Decalogue as well as making use of it when in company of unbelievers or Christians.
The information covered in The Marrow of Modern Divinity gives you a greater knowledge of the gospel and the biblical message. Such topics as biblical and God’s sovereignty in the covenant of grace, our assurance in Christ and being sanctified by grace instead of by the law are just a few of the subjects covered in Fisher’s book.
Filled with quotations from the great reformer Martin Luther and from the worthy Puritans, The Marrow emphasizes biblical, evangelical doctrines such as the sovereignty of God in the covenant of grace, the free offer of the gospel, assurance in Christ as the essence of faith, and sanctification by grace rather than by the law.
The Marrow addresses issues which are vital for evangelism and for the health and vitality of the Christianity and the church.
This truly evangelical volume is remarkably well done. This would be a great gift for your pastor and, if he takes it to heart and it changes his preaching, it could be a great gift to the whole congregation!
