Several of the great battle cries of the Protestant Reformation were sola fide (by faith alone), sola gratia (by grace alone), and sola Christo (by Christ alone). Who would think that the Reformed church of the 21st Century would have to rally again behind these battle cries? This time, the threat comes from within the Reformed camp. Jesus said that there would be false apostles who would be wolves in sheep’s clothing, and the apostle Paul warned the Ephesian elders that savage wolves would come from their own midst, not sparing the flock.
The advent of Federal Vision theology has brought one of the most serious threats to the Reformed community in a long time. The glorious doctrines of justification “by faith alone” and the imputation of Christ’s righteousness to believers have been denied. The five points of Calvinism have all been jeopardized. Baptismal regeneration is advocated. The Federal Vision is simply a hybrid form of Roman Catholicism.
This 540 page book is the most comprehensive work on this subject. It is thoroughly documented with numerous quotes from the lectures and writings of several proponents of the Federal Vision. You will find this book an extremely valuable resource.
