Even if we’re believers, we might experience moments when we question, “Have I done enough?” or “Have I been good enough?” in order to feel secure in our salvation. The Beauty of Divine Grace challenges these insecurities and explores five essential truths about God’s role in salvation to help us grasp the depth of our total and complete reliance on God for eternal life.
This foundational book on salvation explains the very heart of the Christian faith: that salvation comes from God’s grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, reliant on Scripture alone, for God’s glory alone. Together, these “alone” statements are called the five solas of the Reformation.
Using clear and relevant examples, The Beauty of Divine Grace explores the core beliefs of Christianity, like the sufficiency of Scripture and the once-and-for-all sacrifice that Christ made for sin. You’ll gain deep insight into what Martin Luther and the Reformers discovered in the Scriptures when they insisted that salvation is not the result of works but that it’s the gift of God through faith in Jesus Christ. This helpful book will also remind you how to live in the light of these truths.
Alistair often says that when it comes to studying the Bible, “the main things are the plain things, and the plain things are the main things.” The Beauty of Divine Grace explores the main things! Examining what is foundational to all we believe as Christians, this book makes it clear that the Bible is Christ’s book and that He alone is the center of the story. Through it, you’ll see how the five solas give us the heartbeat of the Gospel and a roadmap for the Christian life.
For the weak moments when we find ourselves questioning our salvation or wondering if our own contribution to our salvation will be good enough, The Beauty of Divine Grace will help correct our wrong thinking and remind us that salvation is all grace and all Christ. A great book for your permanent library or to give to a friend seeking to understand what it means to trust in Jesus, it will encourage you to live trusting in the certainty of God’s power to save.
