DR. SAM WALDRON: "FAITH, OBEDIENCE & JUSTIFICATION: Current Evangelical Departures From Sola Fide "

MP3 Available Here

DR. SAM WALDRON, one of the pastors of the Heritage Baptist Church of Owensboro, Kentucky, and the Professor of Systematic Theology at the Midwest Center for Theological Studies, will address the theme of his book: FAITH, OBEDIENCE & JUSTIFICATION: Current Evangelical Departures From Sola Fide

Dr. Waldron understands precisely what is at stake in the current debate over "the obedience of faith". With an impressive array of historical evidence, Waldron demonstrates overwhelming uniformity within the Reformation heritage concerning the definition of justifying faith. Utilizing this same evidence, he proceeds to weigh the claims of adherence to "Sola Fide" made by three prominent Evangelical writers (Daniel Fuller, Norman Shepherd and Don Garlington), and finds them wanting.

"The undermining of classical Protestant formulations of sola fide is a significant, and disheartening, feature in contemporary evangelical discussion of soteriology . . . Waldron understands this and provides trenchant historical and theological critique in crystal clear prose." Ligon Duncan, Ph.D.

"For those still studying the issues of 'the obedience of the faith' and its meaning in Reformation theology vs. modern 'covenant nomism,' this is a must read." Fred A. Malone, Ph.D.

Dr. Waldron is the author of numerous other books and pamphlets including To Be Continued: Are the Miraculous Gifts For Today?, 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith: A Modern Exposition, The End Times Made Simple, A Reformed Baptist Manifesto: The New Covenant Constitution of the Church and a contributor to the four views book on church government, Who Runs the Church?
