About "Message of Salvation (Bible Speaks Today Themes Series)"
This book is about the best news the world has ever heard - the message of salvation. Put in theological terms, the volume's topic is soteriology, from the Greek words soteria and logos, meaning the study of "the word of salvation". The Bible itself is the word of salvation, the gracious message that glorifies God by persuading sinners to believe in Jesus Christ. In this wide-ranging exposition, Philip Ryken opens up God's saving message from Holy Scripture, using biblical stories, sermons, letters, and poems to explain the Bible's own doctrine of salvation. He explores how we are saved from sin, by grace through faith, for God's glory. This involves a comprehensive look at salvation themes such as creation and fall, sin and judgement, our inability to save ourselves, being chosen in Christ, our deliverance and redemption, faith and repentance, our adoption as God's Children, the communion of saints, sanctification, and our mission to get the message out.
