The Reformation swept across Europe with a God-glorifying gospelof grace. Now the doctrine of grace cherished and proclaimed by theReformers is under renewed assault from an unexpectedplaceâ€”the evangelical church itself.
With the help of several theologians, Gary L. W. Johnson and GuyP. Waters trace the background and development of two seeminglydisparate movements that have surfaced within the contemporarychurch-the New Perspective(s) on Paul and the Federal Vision-andhow they corrupt the truth of salvation by faith alone. Byregaining a focus on the doctrine of grace, pastors, seminarians,and future leaders can regain the cohesion, coherence, anddirection to truly build the church to withstand the attacks offalse and empty doctrines.
