PPB Christ Set Forth: As the Cause of Justification and as the Object of Justifying Faith
2 in stock
First published in 1642, Christ Set Forth - one of Thomas Goodwin's most beloved and enduring works - is a book full of theological riches and penetrating pastoral insights. An exposition of Romans 8:34, it addresses the pastoral problem that many believers stray in their faith by looking into their own hearts for signs of grace instead of looking to Christ and away from themselves.
As Scott Berggren says in the Foreword, "It is a guidebook for keeping one's heart and faith pointed in the right direction, towards Christ himself. In it, Goodwin pushes aside anything that might displace Christ in one's heart. In chapter after chapter he sets forth the glory of Christ and his work as mediator as the only object of one's faith and affection."?
"Turning to nearly any page in this volume, readers will be rewarded with a remarkably pastoral theology of justification by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone."?
