Historians and theologians alike have long recognized that at the heart of the sixteenth-century Protestant Reformation were five declarations (or “solas”) that distinguished the movement from other expressions of the Christian faith. Five hundred years later, we live in a different time with fresh challenges to our faith. Yet these rallying cries of the Reformation continue to speak to us, addressing a wide range of contemporary issues. The Five Solas series will help you understand the historical and biblical context of the five solas and how to live out the relevance of Reformation theology today. In Christ Alone, 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. Then, he walks us 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. Wellum shows that we must recover a robust biblical and theological doctrine of Christ’s person and work in the face of today’s challenges and explains why a fresh appraisal of the Reformation understanding of Christ alone is needed today.

Historians and theologians alike have long recognized that at the heart of the sixteenth-century Protestant Reformation were five declarations (or “solas”) that distinguished the movement from other expressions of the Christian faith. Five hundred years later, we live in a different time with fresh challenges to our faith. Yet these rallying cries of the Reformation continue to speak to us, addressing a wide range of contemporary issues. The Five Solas series will help you understand the historical and biblical context of the five solas and how to live out the relevance of Reformation theology today. In God’s Word Alone—The Authority of Scripture, scholar and pastor Matthew Barrett looks at the historical and biblical roots of the doctrine that Scripture alone is the final and decisive authority for God’s people. He examines the development of this theme in the Reformation and traces the crisis that followed resulting in a shift away from the authority of Scripture. Barrett shows that we need to recover a robust doctrine of Scripture’s authority in the face of today’s challenges and why a solid doctrinal foundation built on God’s Word is the best hope for the future of the church.

The Heidelberg Catechism is introduced as one of the world’s foremost and prevailing (not only Reformed, but) Christian faith documents throughout the centuries, due to its intellectual clarity as well as personal style. At the same time, the book invites the reader to engage the HC in conversation with contemporary Christian faith (Busch) while “Learning Jesus Christ through the Heidelberg Catechism” (Barth), understanding the HC as a book of “Comfort and Joy” (Kuyvenhoven) as well as a guide to “Christian living” (Rozema). In that sense, the tone of the book is not “neutral”, but rather “theological/confessional”. Portraying the HC throughout as “Schoolbook – Prayer book – Lectionary – Confession – Compendium” is aimed not only at describing its traditional uses in churches so far, but also at engaging the reader on different levels, and eventually enabling him or her to begin answering the vital question: “But why are you called a Christian?”

This is a book about Jesus of Nazareth. It is not a book about story, nor about narrative theology. Hans Frei was not a theologian of story or of narrative in any general way, and this book is neither about the narrative quality of our existence and the gospel's relation to that quality, nor about the narrative shape of the Scriptures as a whole and the call on us to place ourselves within that narrative. Rather, this is a book about the way in which Jesus of Nazareth's identity is rendered by the Gospels--largely the Synoptic Gospels, particularly the Gospel of Luke, and especially in the passion and resurrection sequences--by means of a certain kind of narrative. --from the Foreword by Mike Higton

The purpose of this book is to examine the most monumental life in history- Jesus, the Christ. By examining the words of Jesus, and the apostle Paul, the reader will gain a greater appreciation of the ministry of Jesus. Indeed, the reader will learn that Jesus not only died to take away our sins; He also lived to provide us with perfect righteousness. This is the great exchange: we exchange our sins for His righteousness. Yet, the importance of this truth is rarely emphasized in churches today. This study will examine the great exchange by using key passages from the New Testament. By learning more about the great exchange, readers will gain a deeper understanding into the meaning of salvation, as well as who they are in Christ. "

The Bible has faced opposition from Satan’s world since the beginning, from supposed “friend” and foe alike. An innumerable number of faithful followers of God have paid with their lives to bring us the Bible in our language today. Even today, there is much pressure from the so-called Christian community and the scholarly world to be faithful to man as opposed to being faithful to God and the original language text when translating the Bible. The closing chapters will deal with that, for now, let’s look at the hazardous duty of Bible translation and the lives of three great men. TRANSLATING TRUTH will deal with the process of going from the original language critical text to the Bible translation in English. Also, it will address the differences as well, so the reader can know which translations are to be most trusted. There are rules and principles to Bible translation that will give the reader the closest English equivalent of what God’s Word had said in the original language of Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek. It is art to be balanced in the application of these rules and principles. While Bible translators are no longer hung or burned at the stake, there is still enormous pressure on their lives. If a translator does not color within the lines of certain groups, they can be ostracized to the point of being unable to work. They are privately and publicly mocked. For example, the literal translators are wrongly viewed as knuckle-dragging Neanderthals who cannot give up the dated way of translating the Word of God by the modern idealist way of carrying out the work of Bible translation by the dynamic equivalent, interpretive translators. Modern-day scholars and many within the so-called Christian community will treat the translator who is faithful to God and the original text with contempt, scorn, mockery, and derision, even outright hostility. The final section of chapters could never be exhaustive as to what could be said about the trustworthiness of our Bible but it is more than enough to give you a sense that what we have today is the closest to what we have ever had when it comes to our literal translations being a mirrorlike reflection of the originals in English.
