The Gospel According to the Apostles: The Role of Works in the Life of Faith, by John F. MacArthur
- Author: John F. MacArthur
Christians have struggled to draw the line between faith and works ever since the apostles Paul and James. Paul stresses that salvation is not by works, so that no one can boast (Ephesians 2:8-9). James argues that you show your faith by works (James 2:18).
Dr. John MacArthur uses his characteristic compelling style to reconcile these two seemingly divergent threads of biblical truth, confronting questions such as:
- What is cheap grace?
- Have some Christians adopted a "no-lordship" theology?
- What must a person do to be considered righteous by God?
- Do our works have an impact on our salvation?
Jesus asked his followers, "Why do you call me Lord and not do the things that I tell you to?" When John MacArthur dared in his earlier book to ask us this question, critics accused him of shelving grace. Others read the same book and heard in it the identical message preached since the founding of the Church.
"The Gospel According to the Apostles is the same gospel Jesus preached," Dr. MacArthur says, "but it differs dramatically from the diluted message popular today. I pray you'll find this book an encouragement as you seek to put your own faith to work."
