Object and Acts of Justifying Faith

All thoughts that have been put forth to dilute the Scriptural teachings about the object and acts of justifying faith have been answered here, fully and courageously. This man is no crowd pleaser. Some will say that he is too long on the subject, and so infer that he repeats himself. This is simply not so. He draws out the arguments to the fullest in order to show the weak spots in the plausible arguments put forth to obscure the scriptural teaching of salvation by faith alone, and that faith a gift of God.

Goodwin points out that faith must be founded in God’s nature as its object, support and encouragement. Secondly, faith must be in Jesus Christ as God-man, essential man fused with God the Son. Further, the free, unmerited grace of God is the object of true faith. Faith requires a spiritual life, and with it a sight of Christ. He treats of assurance, and of faith in prayer. His description of the properties of faith, of its excellence, and its use, is superb. Though faith be a difficult work above our power, yet God commands us to use our utmost endeavors to believe’ (p. 546). And he shows the reasons why God commands us to believe; how infinite is the power of God in working faith, and yet how our own endeavors are consistent with that powerful working of God.

This is a thorough work, a practical guide to right thoughts about faith, and the action we ought to take because of this God-given grace. Anyone who believes in the scriptural Doctrine of Justification by Faith Alone should be certain to have this volume. For it answers every objection ever dreamed up by Satan to discredit the doctrine.

‘This is one of the greatest collections of sermons ever put together. As an exegete and an expositor, Goodwin had no equal. What is contained between these covers, therefore is of unsurpassed merit’ (The Minister’s Library, Cyril J.  Barber)

Bishop J. C. Ryle, Alexander Whyte, Jonathan Edwards, and a host of others count Thomas Goodwin as the favorite author among the Puritans.

Goodwin (1600-1679) was influential in many ways, a member of the Westminster Assembly, President of Magdalene College, drafter of the Savoy Confession of Faith, and pastor at the most influential Independent church in London.  608 pages, blue hard cover
