Ever since Martin Luther, the famous sixteenth-century Reformer, nailed his ninety-five theses to the castle door of Wittenberg, the doctrine of justification by faith alone has been one of the great truths of the Reformed faith.
In this concise booklet, J. V. Fesko takes a fresh look at this critical doctrine, explaining biblical teaching, examining classic Reformed statements, and answering common questions.
Basics of the Faith booklets introduce readers to basic Reformed doctrine and practice. On issues of church government and practice they reflect that framework—otherwise they are suitable for all church situations.
J. V. Fesko is an ordained minister in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, and is also academic dean and associate professor of systematic theology at Westminster Seminary California.
"In this age of chaos and confusion in the church, the gravest threat has emerged through recent challenges to the classic Reformation doctrine of justification. In What Is Justification By Faith Alone? John Fesko meets the need of the hour with a thoroughly biblical, theologically clear, and historically informed answer to life’s greatest question: 'How may I, a sinner, be justified by the holy God?' Though brief, Fesko’s booklet is a tour de force of the Bible’s teaching of justification." — Richard D. Phillips
