Product Description

Was the Reformation doctrine of justification by faith alone an invention or a recovery? Nathan Busenitz proves that, in fact, this fundamental doctrine originates in Scripture and can be found in the works of pre-Reformation figures like Origen, Augustine, Anselm, and Bernard of Clairvaux. Through his critical engagement with opposing views and primary sources, Busenitz calls each of us to a deeper appreciation of the Reformation confession sola fide. Rediscover this truth that is not only rooted in Scripture but also carried up from the depths of the family tree.

Publisher's Description

Where was the gospel before the Reformation?

Contemporary evangelicals often struggle to answer that question. As a result, many Roman Catholics are quick to allege that the Reformation understanding of the gospel simply did not exist before the 1500s. They assert that key Reformation doctrines, like sola fide, were nonexistent in the first fifteen centuries of church history. Rather, they were invented by Martin Luther, John Calvin, and others.

That is a serious charge, and one that evangelicals must be ready to answer. If an evangelical understanding of the gospel is only 500 years old, we are in major trouble. However, if it can be demonstrated that Reformers were not inventing something new, but instead were recovering something old, then key tenets of the Protestant faith are greatly affirmed. Hence, the need for this book.

After reading Long Before Luther, readers will:

  • Possess a greater understanding of church history and the role it plays in the church today.
  • Have a deeper appreciation for the hard-won victories of the Reformation.
  • Be equipped to dialogue with Catholic friends about the presence of Reformed doctrines throughout church history.
  • Feel renewed gratefulness for the unearned nature of grace and the power of the gospel.
