Using an Outdated Term? – An Excerpt from Faith Alone

ZA Blog on 1 year ago. Tagged under ,,,,.

Faith Alone“What is the solution to this mess called sin?” This is one of the most important questions the Gospel answers. In Faith Alone — the first book in the “5 Solas Series” — Thomas Schreiner reminds us that salvation is by faith alone, and how fundamental this is to the Gospel. Read the introduction here, then order your copy of Faith Alone today.

Many people who think that they despise the theology of John Calvin change their mind once they actually take time to read his writings. I’ve seen it again and again in the classroom—both as a student, and as a teacher.

When this has happened, however, I’ve often heard a warning: Calvin may be biblical, dynamic, and Christ-centered, but steer clear of those seventeenth century “Calvinists.” Rather than going straight to the Bible, they got distracted by the medieval scholastics; rather than being pastoral and Christ-centered, the Reformed Scholastics were rationalists whose writings don’t edify the church.

Twenty years after hearing these warnings in college, I can say that they reveal more about those giving the warnings than the Protestant Scholastics themselves.

There has been a sea change in scholarship on Protestant Scholasticism, and its…
