A Booklet by Archibald Alexander Originally published by the American Tract Society as "Justification by Faith: With a Summary View of The Doctrine, And Its Momentous Import"
We hope this will help to explain the biblical doctrine of Justification by Faith Alone, as well as refute some of the more prevalent ancient and modern errors about how sinners are Justified before God. Alexander's strong defense of the NECESSITY of the Imputation of Christ's ACTIVE OBEDIENCE in Biblical Justification is particularly useful.
Relevant for Current Controversies! The title of this sermon and its doctrine look familiar enough to all Protestants since the Reformation, especially among Reformed or Calvinistic churches, yet it is shockingly the most controversial, debated, and assaulted doctrine in this present day. Listening to this written message by Archibald Alexander will help clear up the present controversies and heretical notions of various degrees plaguing OPC and PCA Presbyterians, Sovereign Grace and Reformed Baptists, especially in regards to subjects like the New Perspectives on Paul, Federal Vision, Justification from Eternity, and many more errors that have crept in subtlely. A. Alexander is certainly worthy to be appealed to for help in clarifying this foundational doctrine of the Christian faith.
