Reviews of Christian Books

Another blog I have on Google Reader is entitled The Reformed Reader. The author of the blog, Shane Lems, posted a short quote from R.C. Sproul’s new book, The Truth of the Cross. I found the quote to be spot-on, so am posting it here as well:

“The prevailing doctrine of justification today is not justification by faith alone. It’s not even justification by good works or by a combination of faith and works. The prevailing notion of justification in Western culture today is justification by death. It’s assumed that all one has to do to be received into the everlasting arms of God is to die” (R.C. Sproul, The Truth of the Cross [Orlando: Reformation Trust, 2007], 10).
