Part 1 of each volume seeks to take the reader back to the sixteenth century, providing the reader with the historical background to the sola in focus. 2. Sola______ in biblical and theological perspective. Part 2 moves from the historical to the biblical, seeking to defend the sola in focus both biblically and theologically. 3.

The purpose of this final section is not merely to answer contemporary challenges, but to show the relevancy of Reformation theology today.

Promotional Information

There have been many attempts over the centuries to expound on Peter's answer to Jesus' question, "Who do you say that I am?": "You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God." Stephen Wellum's book unpacks both parts of Peter's answer by giving a fuller biblical account of the uniqueness of his person (as Son) and the sufficiency of his work (as Christ). This biblical-theological material serves as the backdrop for appreciating the significance of the Reformation's recovery of "Christ alone." Wellum's retrieval of this central Reformation sola is a wonderful encouragement to the church today, in a new relativistic and pluralistic context, to go and do likewise - to testify with lips and lives that the meaning of creation and the message of salvation is found in Christ alone. -- Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Research Professor of Systematic Theology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School Christ alone is the glue and centerpiece of the five great solas of the reformation according to this magnificent work by Steve Wellum. We see the centrality of Christ in both his person and his work, for the work of Christ is effective because of who he is. Wellum makes his case from both biblical and systematic theology, and he shows he is well-versed in philosophy as well. I believe this book is going to be read and quoted for many years to come. -- Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary In Christ Alone---The Uniqueness of Jesus as Savior, Stephen Wellum reminds us that "Christ alone" is not only the center of the five Reformation solas, but that it stands as the central doctrine of systematic theology. Without it we cannot fully understand the doctrines of the Trinity, humanity, or salvation. "Christ alone," argues Wellum, "must connect all the doctrines of our theology because Christ alone stands as the cornerstone of all the purposes and plans of God himself." Consequently, if we get "Christ alone" wrong, Wellum reminds us, "all other doctrines will likely suffer." So take up this book, read it, and think on the person and work of Christ in order that you may know, worship, and proclaim the same Christ as the Reformers, who is none other than the Christ of Scripture. -- Juan R. Sanchez, Senior Pastor of High Pointe Baptist Church, Austin, Texas
