Salvation By Allegiance Alone: Rethinking Faith, Works, and the Gospel of Jesus the King

Matthew W Bates

Salvation By Allegiance Alone: Rethinking Faith, Works, and the Gospel of Jesus the King

Matthew W Bates

$24.99

Paperback
:We are saved by faith when we trust that Jesus died for our sins. This is the gospel, or so we are taught. But what is faith? And does this accurately summarize the gospel? Because faith is frequently misunderstood and the climax of the gospel misidentified, the gospel's full power remains untapped. While offering a fresh proposal for what faith means within a biblical theology of salvation, Matthew Bates presses the church toward a new precision: we are saved solely by allegiance to Jesus the king. Instead of faith alone, Christians must speak about salvation by allegiance alone. The book includes discussion questions for students, pastors, and church groups and a foreword by Scot McKnight.

A Must Read
5 stars By Dr. Bernard Low, Feb 05 2018
Every once in a while, a good book will appear and shake the scholarly world. This book by Matthew Bates is one such book. Its publication at a time when the Christian world is celebrating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation is timely. In this book, Bates examines afresh what is meant by salvation by "FAITH ALONE." He argues that "faith" (or pistis in the Greek) should be translated as "allegiance." This allegiance comprises three elements: mental assent, professed fealty and embodied loyalty. This is as it should be because Jesus is King! Bates' argument that we are saved by allegiance alone provides a needed corrective to the popular (mis)understanding that we are saved by faith alone where faith is usually understood as just a mental assent to the truth that Jesus is Savior and Lord. Bates' thesis is sure to cause controversy but it needs to be reckoned with. Highly recommended!
