Review:

"Goes to the very heart of what constitutes biblical Christianity. In these pages, the dangers besetting the historic Protestant faith become very clear, but so too do the magnificent truths that have to be repossessed, affirmed, and defended in every generation." David F. Wells

"Brimming with insights for theologians and pastors, counselors and lay Christians, this book shows that historic Protestantism is far from dead. More importantly, it demonstrates why justification is at the heart of what it means to be alive in Christ." D. G. Hart

"The New Perspectives on Paul and the Federal Vision have posed grave challenges to the biblical teachings on justification and covenant theology. I am therefore extraordinarily grateful that the faculty of Westminster Seminary California has provided the church with this collection of essays. Readers will find no ground -- exegetical, theological, historical, homiletical -- untraversed. Reformed ministers, elders, or students cannot afford to bypass careful study of this volume." Guy Prentiss Waters

"The historic Reformational understanding of justification, imputation, active obedience, and covenant theology is under assault even from within sectors of the Reformed community. This book represents one of the most scholarly and comprehensive rejoinders to date. The authors effectively and exegetically critique 'covenantal nomism,' and provide an impressive discussion of key aspects of classical covenant theology that vindicates the confessional view." J. Ligon Duncan III

"A faithful, lucid, and detailed exposition and defense of sola fide, matched in its scholarly precision by its pastoral concern. The faculty of Westminster Seminary California has given a clear testimony of where they stand on this most important doctrine, the heart of the gospel, the glorious exchange between sinful man and our holy God. This book should be read by anyone wanting a deeper knowledge of justification by faith alone." --John Fesko
