|1. Justified by Faith Alone - Unabridged Audiobook - Part 1||R.C. Sproul||N/A||Album Only|
|Format: Audio Download|
|Publication Date: 2010|
Since the Protestant Reformation of the 16th century, sola fide has been the defining doctrine of evangelical Christianity--and the way a person is justified the defining difference between Roman Catholics and evangelicals. In this booklet R.C. Sproul examines what justification is according to God's Word, compares the Roman Catholic and evangelical stances on this core doctrine, and discusses the relationship of faith and works--all to show why "by faith alone" is so essential. As Sproul puts it, "The crucial issue of infusion versus imputation remains irreconcilable. We are either justified by a righteousness that is in us or by a righteousness that is apart from us. There is no third way." Indeed, eternity is at stake. This is a topic that should not be ignored.
LoganNew Zealand3 Stars Out Of 5January 19, 2011LoganNew ZealandQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3While this book is fairly short (the audiobook is just over an hour long) it offers a solid introduction to the variety of understandings of the Christian doctrine of Justification from within both the Roman Catholic and Protestant traditions. The book explores the doctrine historically and compares the positions held by those traditions.
The narration feels a little rigid at times. The enunciation is clear, but it sounds like it comes at the cost of some of the natural flow of the text. That said much of the book is devoted to discussion around the technical aspects of the doctrine in the comparisons, as such the vocabulary may make listening cumbersome to casual listeners.
Overall it is a helpful book to understanding justification but serves no more than an introduction that may be just right to spark an interest to dig deeper.
