Reviews - What do customers think about The Plan of Salvation?
Clear But Not Simple Dec 17, 2007
"There are fundamentally only two doctrines of salvation: that salvation is from God, and that salvation is from ourselves." This is pretty much Warfield's passion in this book. It is written by an intellectual zealot for the Christian faith and the Reformed Tradition. Warfield's erudition may mean that his modern readers get stretched a bit, but if you want to understand how the various denominational distinctive views on salvation are fundamentally to be understood, this book is where to start.
The book is based on a series of lectures, as with Kuyper's Stone Lectures on Calvinism, and are therefore oriented toward an audience inclined to systematic study. The language on the whole is accessible and not overly technical. The lecture format gives the material a "bite-sized" nature which allows for reading in segments rather than having to carry a theme through the whole. All in all, this book will become indispensable to anyone who cares about the doctrines of salvation and needs grounding for their own understanding or for presenting it to others.
