Justification and Regeneration: Practical Writings on Saving Faith

Witherspoon, John; DeYoung, Kevin (Edited By)

Pricing details

$29.99 MSRP

Healthy doctrines of justification and regeneration have always been essential to the Christian's faith and knowledge of God. In the context of 18th century Great Britain and its American Colonies, few treatments were as highly regarded as John Witherspoon's An Essay on Justification and A Practical Treatise on Regeneration, both reprinted in this volume.

Providing a careful summary of Witherspoon's life and thought, Kevin DeYoung's introduction and notes are an invaluable guide to these classic works. Justification and Regeneration is both milk and solid food for the Christian–an incisive study of the converted person's standing before God, along with a pastoral exploration of the power of that conversion.

John Witherspoon (1723-1794) was born in Scotland and ministered to two congregations there, Beith and in Paisley, before accepting an appointment as president of the College of New Jersey (later Princeton University) in 1768. Remembered today as the only clergyman to sign the Declaration of Independence, Witherspoon was perhaps best known in his defense of Reformed theology and pastoral emphasis on saving faith–as seen in his two popular theological works reprinted here.

Kevin DeYoung is senior pastor at Christ Covenant Church in Matthews, North Carolina, board chairman of The Gospel Coalition, and associate professor of systematic theology at Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte. He is the author of The Religious Formation of John Witherspoon, in addition to many popular books, including Men and Women in the Church and Taking God at His Word. He and his wife, Trisha, have nine children.
