Book Description:

In this classic work, J. Gresham Machen addresses one of the most fundamental questions about the Christian Gospel. In his graceful style he expounds the biblical teaching on faith, combining the solid content of the truth with the personal challenge of the gospel. The result is a book of outstanding and permanent value.

This book will soon be joined by these companion volumes by Machen:

  • God Transcendent
  • The Christian View of Man

The story of Machen's life and work is told in J. Gresham Machen: A Biographical Memoir by Ned B. Stonehouse, which is also published by Banner of Truth.

In 1936 Machen was instrumental with others in founding what became the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, and was its first Moderator.
