OK, I admit it — I have favorite authors and theologians. When it comes to the New Testament and the doctrines of grace, Schreiner never disappoints. Thomas Schreiner’s Faith Alone: The Doctrine of Justification lives up to my lofty expectations. This volume addresses the issue with thoughtfulness, clarity, biblical exegesis, and theological insight. It is part of The 5 Solas Series superbly edited by Matthew Barrett (one of the best editors I’ve ever worked with). Contrary to the disappointing disappearance of indexes from hard copy books nowadays, this volume includes both Scripture and Subject Indexes, making it handy for future reference. Schreiner covers the historical background of Sola Fide from the Early Church through to John Wesley. He comprehensively examines the biblical and theological details and implications of the doctrine of justification by faith alone. He concludes with a look at the contemporary challenges to this biblical teaching.
