The Message of Salvation: By God's Grace, For God's Glory (Bible Speaks Today)

Ryken, Philip Graham

Product Description

Listen to a lecture by Leland Ryken entitled Sent to Justify. (Sermon Audio)


Salvation is a well-worn Christian term. We think we know what it means. But biblically speaking, salvation is one of those big terms that encircles a number of others, each of them reflecting a stunning facet of God's grace in Jesus Christ.

Philip Ryken has chosen nineteen biblical passages that take us deeper into the biblical teaching on salvation. The centerpiece of each passage has a familiar ring: election, deliverance, redemption, expiation, reconciliation, regeneration, justification, adoption, sanctification and glorification. But each facet directs us by turns to a glory far exceeding itself.

If this world is indeed lost, then understanding and proclaiming the grammar of God's gracious salvation exceeds by bounds the significance of a Human Genome Project or any other great human endeavor. A passion for the grandness of God's work shows through as Philip Ryken illuminates the contours of the message of salvation.
