Is faith alone enough to make you a child of God—or is there more to it? Do you have to do, or not do, certain things? Follow certain laws or traditions? These were hot questions for the early church, and they finally had a summit meeting to hash it out. Everybody who was anybody was there.

Whatever Happened to the Gospel of Grace

Combines a serious examination of the state of today’s church and a powerful solution: reclaiming the gospel of grace found in the confessional truths of the Reformation.

Though the Christian church has achieved a worldly sort of success — big numbers, big budgets, big outreaches — these are not good days for evangelicalism. Attendance is down, and it is increasingly difficult to distinguish so-called “believers” from their non-Christian neighbors — all because the gospel of grace has been neglected.

In this work, now in paperback, the late James Montgomery Boice identifies what’s happened within evangelicalism and suggests how the confessional statements of the Reformation — Scripture alone, Christ alone, grace alone, faith alone, and glory to God alone — can ignite full-scale revival. “A church without these convictions has ceased to be a true church, whatever else it may be,” he wrote, but “if we hold to these doctrines, our churches and those we influence will grow strong.”

Jesus Through the Bible
We believe in a Christ-centered Bible. The salvation that was expected in the Old Testament is exhibited in the Gospels and then explained in the rest of the New Testament.
