The doctrine of salvation is the watershed doctrine of Scripture. Flowing from that doctrine will be not only all other doctrine but also personal practice and Christian ministry. The major controversy concerning salvation is whether it is a result of the sovereign grace of God alone or a mixture of "God's part" and "man's part." Addressing that issue is absolutely critical to the very foundations of Christianity itself. Whichever one of those premises is correct, we should expect to find it everywhere we look in Scripture, and that is precisely what we find. There is no truth that permeates the Bible more than the doctrines of God's sovereign grace. From Genesis to Revelation, in literally hundreds of verses, these doctrines call, capture, and command our attention.Of the many books of the Bible we could choose, the Gospel of John is among the most compelling because of its foundational nature. It is there we find some of the most profound teaching on the Doctrines of Grace in all Scripture. Examining more than one hundred verses in John, this small volume presents these great biblical and historical doctrines directly from the lips of our Lord.

Combines a serious examination of the state of today's church and a powerful solution: reclaiming the gospel of grace found in the confessional truths of the Reformation. Though the Christian church has achieved a worldly sort of success-big numbers, big budgets, big outreaches-these are not good days for evangelicalism. Attendance is down, and it is increasingly difficult to distinguish so-called "believers" from their non-Christian neighbors-all because the gospel of grace has been neglected. In this work, now in paperback, the late James Montgomery Boice identifies what's happened within evangelicalism and suggests how the confessional statements of the Reformation-Scripture alone, Christ alone, grace alone, faith alone, and glory to God alone-can ignite full-scale revival. "A church without these convictions has ceased to be a true church, whatever else it may be," he wrote, but "if we hold to these doctrines, our churches and those we influence will grow strong."

This book is about how the Christian actually became a Christian. The 'process' is Marc's focus. How does God take the Chosen from the womb to salvation then into His eternal bosom? The classic position of Election and Predestination is made plain; forcing the reader to address the alternative, Man's free-will choice to be 'saved' or not. Can these two positions be reconciled? No, not really. The Lord assured Moses: I will make all My goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion, Exodus 33:19. Moses was to experience a limited 'theophany, ' what the Greek Orthodox call a 'theosis, ' the physical presence of God, Himself, equivalent to - 'My goodness.' It is God's very 'Goodness' the New Testament saint knows to be the indwelt Holy Spirit, the very Spirit of Christ Jesus, Himself, God Himself. Paul cites the Exodus passage in Romans to demonstrate to the body of Christ that God by His sovereignty elected each believer to be His own, that we did not elect ourselves to be God's. And one Saint asked, "Why write about such things that have been covered for hundreds of years?" True. But more recently much about God's sovereignty has been covered over. Christian modernity has adapted as the author once did to a new Evangelicalism. Whereby, some first truths have been buried so deep that when they are unearthed they appear to be a foreign theology to the present generation of Evangelical believers. Marc affords the saint the information necessary to actually understand how he or she actually got saved! Marc presently lives in Orlando Florida where he pastors Blessed Fellowship Orlando, an outreach ministry of Orlando Prayer and Worship Center, Senior Pastor Roy Futch.

English summary: Martin Luther's intention when writing this essay was to offer assistance in praying to a barber. In this volume Luther's text is edited and commented on by Ulrich Kopf and Peter Zimmerlink. It provides an insight into the reformer's spirituality and enables the reader to see Martin Luther and his theology. German description: Martin Luthers Schrift Wie man beten soll ermoglicht einen Blick in die personliche Spiritualitat des Reformators wie nur wenige andere seiner Bucher. Die Schrift zeigt am Beispiel des Gebets, wie Luther seine Frommigkeit ganz konkret gelebt hat. Daneben zeichnet sie sich durch Einfachheit und Anschaulichkeit aus. Luther verfasste das Buchlein fur einen Handwerker: seinen Barbier Meister Peter. In der Vorbereitung auf das Reformationsjubilaum 2017 hat die Evangelische Kirche in Deutschland eine Lutherdekade ausgerufen. Die Neuherausgabe von Martin Luthers Schrift Wie man beten soll von 1535 durch Ulrich Kopf und Peter Zimmerling mochte in diesem Zusammenhang einen Beitrag dazu leisten, Glauben und Denken des Reformators, die auch vielen evangelischen Christen fremd geworden sind, einer breiten Offentlichkeit nahe zu bringen. Auf wenigen Seiten hat Luther einen Lehrgang des Betens entwickelt. Der Reformator will einem Laien, der offensichtlich Schwierigkeiten mit dem Gebet hat, eine Gebetshilfe geben und ihn dadurch zum Beten ermutigen. Luther geht davon aus, dass der Glaube der geistlichen Ubung bedarf, wenn er nicht verkummern soll. Insofern stellt die Schrift eine Korrektur gegenuber neueren protestantischen Uberzeugungen dar, dass die Rechtfertigungslehre allein aus Gnaden und die Notwendigkeit geistlicher Ubungen einander widersprechen. Dabei halt Luther fest: Gebet im Rahmen evangelischer Spiritualitat ereignet sich in einem Spielraum der Freiheit. Das Beten vorformulierter Texte dient dem geubten Beter als Feuerzeug, um in dessen Herzen ein Feuer anzuzunden und ihn zum freien Gebet zu befahigen. Die praktisch-theologisch ausgerichtete Einleitung von Zimmerling sowie das Vorwort von Kopf erleichtern den Zugang zu Martin Luthers Schrift.
