Martin Luther contended that the church stands or falls on the doctrine of justification. Is the ground of our justification the righteousness of Christ in us or the righteousness of Christ for us?
This classic, seventeenth-century analysis of the doctrine of justification addresses ten questions, including: - Does faith alone justify? - Is the word justification always used in a forensic sense in this argument; or is it also used in a moral and physical sense?
Turretin's contemporaries celebrated not only his erudition, but also his eloquence and his ministries of mercy. His pastor's heart made him an evangelist who pled with sinners to be reconciled with God.
"A welcome relief... If we hold sacred the notion that God has created us with minds for the purpose of seeking understanding, then we will delight in the clarity and precision of thought Turretin's work presents to us."? - RC Sproul
