There is no question that we live in an age of weak theology and casual Christianity. We have substituted intuition for truth, feeling for belief and immediate gratification for enduring hope. Evangelicalism desperately needs to return to the doctrines that once before reformed the world: radical depravity, unconditional election, particular redemption, efficacious grace and persevering grace.
James Boice and Philip Ryken not only provide a compelling exposition on these doctrines of grace, but also look briefly at their historical impact. The authors leave no doubt that the church suffers when these foundational truths are neglected and that she must return to a Christianity that is practical-minded, kind-hearted, and most importantly, biblically based.
Philip G Ryken (D.Phil., Oxford) joined the Staff of Tenth Presbyterian Church(PCA) in Philadelphia in 1995 and presently serves as Senior Minister.
He is the author of many books including What Is the Christian Worldview; The Message of Salvation (The Bible Speaks Today Themes;, The Doctrines of Grace: Rediscovering the Evangelical Gospel; Jeremiah, Exodus, and Ecclesiastes (Preaching the Word Series); Luke (2 vols), Galatians and 1 Timothy (Reformed Expository Commentary) and Ryken's Bible Handbook.
He also serves on Wheaton College (IL) Board of Trustees, Westminster Theological Seminary (PA) Board of Trustees, and as an Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals council member.
James Montgomery Boice (D.Theol., University of Basel, Switzerland) was until his death in 2000, the pastor of Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, the teacher on "The Bible Study Hour" radio program and chairman of the board of City Centre Academy. In addition to authoring numerous journal articles, he was a consulting editor for the Expositor's Bible Commentary. His books and many Expository commentaries include Foundations of God's City and the five-volume work The Gospel of John.
