Product Description

At the heart of the sixteenth century Protestant Reformation were five rallying cries—sola scriptura, solus Christus, sola gratia, sola fide, and soli Deo gloria. These five declarations not only distinguished the movement from other expressions of Christian faith at the time, but have continued to speak throughout history, addressing a wide range of contemporary issues.

In this volume from the Five Solas series, Christ Alone, author and professor Stephen Wellum considers Christ's singular uniqueness and significance biblically, historically, and today, in our pluralistic and postmodern age. He examines the historical roots of the doctrine, especially in the Reformation era, and then shows how the uniqueness of Christ has come under specific attack today. Wellum guides readers through the storyline of Scripture, from Christ's unique identity and work as prophet, priest, and king, to the application of his work to believers and our covenantal union with him to show that apart from Christ there is no salvation. He argues that if today's church is to proclaim the same Christ as the Reformers, we must understand and embrace solus Christus with the same clarity, conviction, urgency, and abundance of joy.

    It should be no surprise, at this point in 2017, that this year is the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. The year that Martin Luther nailed the 95 Theses on the door of the Wittenberg Chapel, the act that sparked the Reformation. During the Reformation there was a resurgence in theological understanding summarized in the teachings of the Five Solas. These Five Solas are by scripture Alone, by faith alone, by grace alone, by Christ alone, to the Glory of God Alone.

    These pillars of the Reformation are still alive today comma yet they need to be re-established as the centrality of what Christians believe. To that end Zondervan has produced new series of books called, The Five Solas Series. Each book in the series examines one of the Five Solas. The one under review today is that of, Christ Alone: The Uniqueness of Jesus as Savior: What the Reformers Taught And Why it Still Matters, by Stephen Wellum.

    Stephen Wellum is a noted scholar at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and is very well-versed in this topic. Christ Alone, is divided into two parts. The first part studies by Christ alone in the context of scripture and history while the second part Studies by grace alone in the context of the church. Each of these chapters is jam-packed full of exemplary exegesis and application to the modern reader. This book is unique in the sense that it bridges the gap between scholastic and popular level study.

    Furthermore this book may be the best treatments on the topic of how salvation is through Christ alone ever to be produced in short form. Therefore I highly recommend it to every Christian who desires to grow in their faith, be it Pastor, Bible student, Sunday school, or Congregant who was looking to grow in their faith as they study the importance of how Gods love demonstrated by his grace in the work of Jesus Christ is the only way for salvation from our sin.

    This book was provided to me free of charge from Zondervan in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.
