The name RC Sproul is a name that is synonymous with deep theological insights and accessible practicality. Sproul is arguably one of the greatest theologians of this modern day. It therefore goes without saying that any time one of his books is released or released they become an instant must-read.
With this in mind Baker books has reissued one of Sproul’s most notable works “Getting the Gospel Right: the tie that binds Evangelicals together”. This book is the companion arguably Sproul’s greatest book “Faith Alone: Evangelical doctrine of justification”. For a while faith alone deals with the Protestant doctrine of justification compared to that of the Catholic doctrine of justification, “Getting the gospel right” deals more with a in-depth study of the Protestant doctrine of justification it’s self. Why you do not have to read faith alone to understand getting the gospel right they complement each other greatly. Yet I recommend reading getting the gospel right first before reading that of faith alone. I say this with a heavy heart for faith alone has greatly influenced my Christian walk.
In the end getting the gospel right is written in simple plain language that anyone can understand yet is not watered down so that every page you were getting a nugget I feel inside along with application I can be directly applied. This book is again a must buy for all Protestant evangelicals who want to have a deeper grasp of the rich doctrine of justification which is the foundation of the Protestant faith.
This book was provided to me free of charge from Baker Books in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.
