Product Description

This devotional tapestry of articles published earlier in Tabletalk magazine and Eternity Magazine, is designed to help believers gain a better understanding of their Savior and the Christian faith, and to live out that faith in their day-to-day lives. In fifty short chapters arranged in six sections, Dr. Sinclair Ferguson shows that Christ, who is fully God, took on humanity that He might be the Great High Priest of His people as well as the once-for-all sacrifice; that He now ministers to His people through His Spirit, crowning them with great and precious blessings; and that believers are called to duty, from cultivating contentment to mortifying sin. In Christ Alone packed full of nuggets of Scriptural truth that will spark and fan the flames of the believer's love for the Savior, and deepen their understanding of basic Christian doctrine.

Dr. Sinclair B. Ferguson is senior minister of the historic First Presbyterian Church in Columbia, S.C., and a distinguished visiting professor of systematic theology at Westminster Theological Seminary in Dallas, Texas.

    Sinclair Ferguson has, by God's grace, done the near impossible: in writing In Christ Alone, he has written a Spiritual classic that will shine among other classics as a book for the ages. This is a book that will long be valued for its insight, wisdom and truth.

    In Christ Alone is a balm for a Christian's weary heart, a book designed to draw you in and remind you of your utter aloneness, your complete unworthiness without Christ and, and, after so doing, remind you of His utter perfection and completeness. It is a book that shows you that Christ really is all you need, that extols His worthiness as Savior and His beauty as God.

    It is a much needed book in the church today: one that will break down barriers that exist between believers because we are frail human beings while at the same time reminding us of the necessity of drawing a firm line exactly where God Himself has drawn it.

    It is also a book for your soul, one that will enable you to draw nearer to your God and to commune with Him as friend to friend.

    Whatever you do, whatever it takes, get this book and read it. Once you've done so, pray and then settle down and read it again.

    DISCLAIMER: I received a free pdf version of this book from Reformation Trust for purposes of review. When my review is published, I will receive a copy of the book itself. I was not required to give a positive review, only a fair and honest one. My opinions are my own.

    Joni Eareckson Tada goes as far as to say, "The title In Christ Alone is enough to make hearts brave and souls stand at attention" (ii). I agree. While reading this book, I saw afresh the glory of Christ, especially in Ferguson's treatment of the gospel of John and the book of Hebrews. Christ alone is our all-sufficient Savior.As Ferguson put it in chapter 4, Christ alone was "free from the need to die for his own sin and . . . in possession of the power to recover his life again" (p. 26). As recently pointed out, only 57 percent of evangelicals today believe Christ is the exclusive Savior of sinners. Of course, this is counter to straightforward words of Christ himself: "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6). It has always been the task of sinners and false teachers to attempt to deconstruct Christ's words to say they mean something entirely different, but the Bible is abundantly clear: in Christ Alone my hope is found. There is no conquering love greater than the love of Christ for his sheep. That is why I believe Ferguson's book is needed in churches today.Dr. Ferguson is a gifted pastor and teacher. His primary concern in this book is to expound what Scripture says about Jesus Christ. I highly recommend reading this book. It would also make an excellent resource for a basic theology course at church or an intensive on the doctrine of Christ. Its short chapters make it a swift read, but also draw on the fact that each chapter says exactly what is needed.
