Tony Lane surveys a wide range of doctrines relating to our experience of God’s gracious salvation. He begins with our need as sinful and fallen people, moves on to consider what is involved in becoming a Christian – majoring on justification (being put right with God) – and concludes with sanctification (living the Christian life). As well as expounding various aspects of these doctrines, Lane introduces their historical roots in classical expositions. Lane warns that these doctrines are in danger of being lost by significant sectors of evangelicalism, and he explains them clearly. He encourages readers to hold firmly to an evangelical soteriology, having a greater understanding of it and a stronger conviction of its truth, with experience of its application to Christian discipleship.
This excellent discussion is both thorough and accessible, seasoned with pithy analogies and illustrations, and tested over decades of teaching. One of the world's leading Calvin scholars and an authority on the historical debates on justification, Lane has a remarkable depth and breadth of knowledge but uses it judiciously and unobtrusively. Operating clearly within biblical and evangelical parameters he displays independent judgement, cogently presented, but free from anything partisan. For a wide readership beyond the popular level, this is the best single book on sin and grace of which I am aware. * Robert Letham, Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology, Union School of Theology *
